Re: PP Summer Sale

Thanks everyone! After giving it some thought, I think I'll probably wear the pendant more than another strand (at least until the weather cools down). I don't wear my strands in the summer either because it's too hot and because my work wardrobe is more casual in the summer than in the winter time...

Re: PP Summer Sale

It's a beautiful pendant! Almost egg shaped which is cool. Since you are trying to make a decision though, do you think you will get a lot of wear out of it?

Re: Neiman Marcus pearls

Oh I see, you are not in the United States. I would look around the internet and see if there are some photos elsewhere like pinterest or Ebay.

Re: Neiman Marcus pearls

I understand why you might be concerned. Can you not return things to that site? With pearls it's difficult to know since each one is different.

Re: Making some things

Thank you both. I just bought some beaders secret from her ( in gray)! I heard about it on a post here. I have saved knotting for the last project because it looks confusing. But I know I can figure it out. May take a few tries! The large silvery pearl from from their single 11-12 mm tahitians. They...

Making some things

I do a little silversmithing, but haven't been able to make it into the studio ( because of a recent surgery ) so I'm beading! First I bought some very colorful drops from The Pearl House, and made them into a bracelet. I don't like the clasp though so I'm going to re do it. I think and maybe add an...

Re: Expectations for Freshadama pearls?

That happened to me too when I got freshadamas. Same kind of thing, the color and shine were great, but they were clearly off round. And I felt that if I were paying more I wanted something REALLY nice. They wound up exchanging it for another very nice necklace.

Re: It's here! .91 peachy-pink sapphire

Sapphires do that color well. Sometimes peach spinels can shift and look a little bit tan.

Re: Pearl ideas for young girls

I wouldn't spend too much. The reason being that at that age they aren't super responsible with jewelry. My daughter is 10 and she does have a pink peach baroque freshwater necklace. Pink is her favorite color. They are small, maybe 5mm. On her it looks like a normal sized necklace. I have a few ver...

Re: Pearl studs around 10mm

I would go with white freshwater metallic or freshadama for your first pearl studs and then experiment later. Also I would go for a rose overtone with your skin. Of course they have a very good return policy so if you get rose and then decide it's not for you it's okay to exchange them. I have 9mm t...

Re: Jewelry shopping in Seoul?

I haven't been there in a very long time. But I do remember that there were some decent deals to be had 15 years ago. At the time a lot of the shops were carrying very delicate, feminine, pretty pieces. Not sure what the trends are there now.

I like your new enhancers. The blue South sea pearl looks very nice with the baroque necklace and I love the mandala type enhancer. Is the center an amethyst or something else?
