Re: Lions and Tigers and Tahitians oh my!

Pirard, Thanks for more photos. The body colors and colorful overtones on your strand were why it was in the photo shoot.

Re: Lions and Tigers and Tahitians oh my!

Pirard, This was the inspiration for my strand. These pearls were better quality and much larger than my 11-15. I couldn't afford this strand so I got my version at a lower price. Pretty huh. 13-14mm multi color tahitians

Re: Lions and Tigers and Tahitians oh my!

Pirard, I would have to get out the calipers. I change it frequently in length and components. I take pearls out of other strands and add it for other looks. The largest pearl is 15.5 and more than likely the back is either 11-or 12mm. You can buy loose pearls anywhere. If you come to the ruckus you...

Re: Lions and Tigers and Tahitians oh my!

I have also purchased other colorful pearls along the way to add into my multi color strand. This changes the look and makes it a new look. When I want a longer strand I can either remove pearls from the rope to add in, or add a bracelet to the back of the strand.

Re: Pearls with Pearl earrings...

I noticed the Dumbo look when watching the honora video at QVC. Antonella was modeling the freshwater / crystal version. Perhaps you have to put a pair of studs in backwards to see what size looks best but is still visible from the front. Some who's ears lay flat against their head may not look good...

Re: Lions and Tigers and Tahitians oh my!

I also purchased three 8-11mm multi color strands and made a rope using HHPmom's technique of mixing the pearls in a bowl and pouring them onto a bead board. Most Tahitian solid color strands have a range of clothing in your closet that really makes them POP. Multi color strands have much more flexi...

Re: Lions and Tigers and Tahitians oh my!

I've had my multi color everyday strand since 2005. It goes with everything and I never get tired of reaching for it. The size is sometimes too large so I will grab a smaller MM strand or pendant. This strand has been the most expensive strand I own but if you factor in wear time, the best purchase ...

Re: Mother of preal?

I guess I'll bite. Why are you asking the ladies of the pearl forum what a anonymous man made stone is? Mother of pearl is shell and it's not man made. I would go to a local gemologist or mineral show if they come to your area. They may have some idea what you have.
