Vendor also has this...
Hmmm. Decisions

The first stand seems to be better balanced in terms of the size of the pearls and the graduation of color. The second strand has Tahitian pearls that appear more green than grey which I prefer color wise, and the pearls appear to have better luster. Both are beautiful. Can't wait to see which one you choose!

My Ebay blue baroque Akoya strand arrived yesterday as well as the little Tahitians from Wen. I love pearl mail! :)

The Akoya strand was advertised a 30 inch strand with 7mm pearls with a 14kg clasp. They are actually 8.5 to 9mm and the strand looks like it has never been worn. I liked it so much that I decided not to add the Wen Tahitians to it, and made a rope with those using vintage natural color baroque Akoyas.

Of course you are deserving. How long do you want it to be? I think it is about 18 inches now. I can restring it and add some length if you like. Let me know and I will put my contact info on Loupe Troop and you can tell me how to send it.

Honestly people on the internet have been so kind to me lately
You are too generouse
But........i am thinking would it be such a bad thing if i spend the next forever paying it forward ? (or back) =)2=)2=)2

You had me at baroque blue Akoya pearl sisters :lol:

Maybe I'll be the PS guest house down under when we have open boarders again and have a healthy world=)2

Do baroques need to be a bit looser than round pearls ? (Are they heavier?)
Mum's FW strand is 18 inches and it feels good -
i don't like causing others more work when they are already doing a nice thing and i don't want to eat into your spair pearls

Hi Daisy. A PS guest house sounds wonderful! :)

I don't think baroques need to be looser than round pearls and I think they are about the same weight as round pearls. I made you a 9 cm white/keshi pearl extender so you can add length to the necklace when you want it to be a bit longer. It really is no trouble.


I made the listing on Loupetroop.

@Daisys and Diamonds - I sent your pearls!

I know you will pay it forward but I honestly think you pay it forward every day on this forum. I know so many of us have been treated to your posts in which you compliment our pearls or jewelry and make us feel special. That type of positive energy is so beautiful and we are so lucky on PS to have you.

Never change. :)
