I love South Sea pearl and diamond drops....WF did a fantastic job of making these beauties for me in the midst of several other projects and delivered it on time.

South Sea pearls are 11mm and to me, have a silvery hue to them....diamonds are ACAs 0.10, 0.08 & 0.05. The lustre is really nice and I can't wait to wear them for my wedding!

I'm addicted to wearing pearls as earrings now :love: I think I'm going to make a more casual pair to wear on a daily basis :lol:

So beautiful, I would wear these on a daily basis casual! The pearls look round in shape to me, or are they a drop shape? Did WF source and provide and pearls for you!

Those are GORGEOUS. I'd wear them with jeans. I wear my big pearl drops on diamond hoops with jeans.

Wow..... the earrings are gorgeous! Out of curiousity, are the earrings customised?

luckyhonu - These are stunning! Do you mind sharing whether you bought the pearls separately and sent them to WF? If so, would you share the pearl vendor?

Thank you. I had not heard of Whiteflash before.

Beautiful earrings. Don't save them just for good. Wear them with everything.

Whiteflash is very famous online, and forums such as PriceScope. When I got engaged my fiancé was not happy with the local brick and mortar stores and the quality of diamonds offered for high prices. So our search began for a high quality diamond education. I turned to PriceScope 9 years ago and read the reviews on diamond vendors. Whiteflash stood out to us. The rest is history repeating itself. Their customer service is impeccable. I am still over-the-moon on all my purchases of their "Super Ideal Cut, ACA Hearts And Arrow Diamonds".
I will not shop any place else for diamonds. Precious stones and pearls are second to their incredible diamond selections and custom work.

Frost Me - the pearls are round...WF sourced the pearls for me, This is my second pearl project with them and I have to say that they did a fantastic job!

blingbunny10 - I had WF source the pearls, I didn't have to buy them separately. Bob at WF was a doll to work with and of course I had to have ACAs for the diamonds in the setting!

Luckyhonu, these SSP earrings are AMAZING! I can totally see the reflection of you taking the picture! :love: I had no idea WF sources pearls! I buy my pearls from PP, but never pieces with diamonds because I'm worried the stones won't be well cut. How are the WF prices for individual pearls compared to online pearl sites? And how many more drool worthy pieces have you got in the works?!!

What kind of pearls do you have from PP? I would love to see them!

Not sure how the pricing is with the WF pearls compared to online pearl sites - I just trust Bob to get me beautiful pearls. I've never bought pearls anywhere else but WF.

My other pearl project is repurposing the pearl drops I had WF make for me in 2005: [URL='https://www.pricescope.com/community/threads/diamond-and-pearl-drops.37949/']https://www.pricescope.com/community/threads/diamond-and-pearl-drops.37949/[/URL]

They were pearls with jacket but I found it kind of a pain to put them on all the time so I'm having them put with a leverback and an ACA stone so they can be worn more casually.

Luckyhonu, I purchased from PP a 8mm strand of akoyas with matching 8.5mm stud earrings a few yrs back. I found that I didn't quite love them as much as I thought I would. Last year I decided to go big and got a 12-14mm strand of SS from PP, which I had shortened and 2 tincups necklaces (1 and 3 stations) made with the extra pearls. I absolutely LOVE this strand but have yet to find any occasion to wear them. The tincups, on the other hand, are pretty versatile and can be worn with almost anything.
I attached some photos taken by PP as my pearl photos are awful!

Did you end up wearing these diamond SS drops on your wedding day? They are just PERFECTLY bridal! I can't wait to see your repurposed akoya drops!

Gorgeous drops luckyhonu, they are so lustrous!

Care bear - beautiful SSP, they are huge! The tin cup was a great way to use the extra pearls.

Oh gosh CareBear, I didn't see your post! I forgot to check the "Notify me when a reply is posted box" and didn't get an email.

But I digress...

I did wear my SS earrings on my wedding day! I love them and wear them for special nights out. I'm still in the middle of repurposing my akoya drops! I can't make up my mind and am driving Bob crazy!! :lol:

:love: ......your SS pearl necklace is breathtaking! I hope you find an occasion to wear them. I've been checking out PP and they have some gorgeous pearls. Have you purchased anything else from them?
