I finally decided on a gold
Keshi strand! Woot. This rounds out my pearl wish list. The rest will just be me restraining and rewiring different designs hehe.

I’m also getting a 11mm champagne south seas. One of these guys:

Thanks! I’m hopeful I will love them. I figure if they came back they were meant to be! I had been told they had sold back in January but there was a clerical misunderstanding and it was available! And I hadn’t been able to commit to any others. Meant to be!


Now the question will be do I want to keep it a necklace or convert to bracelet? I have soooo many pearl necklace options already but only 2 bracelets... and since these are keshi they are theoretically solid nacre and more resilient to wear and tear?

These are gorgeous! Have they arrived yet? How exciting. With your creativity I fully expect both a necklace (tin cup or incorporated with other pearls) and a bracelet. =)2

Ooo those earrings are stunning!

I do feel like in the past year I’ve learned a lot about pearls and I do worry that it’ll be harder over time to find salt water pearls as global warming messes with sea temps and oyster health. Or at least that’s how I rationalize all my pearl purchases!

Pearls are dependent on life to create, what a novel thing for a gem. It unfortunately also makes it more fragile.

I have most of the things on my wish list but depending on how much I love the gold south sea keshi I might need a WSS keshi strand too...

I got a combined shipment with another PSer and she sent me a photo of my keshi and GSS round.
Next to her lighter champagne rounds also from takahashi.

I honestly have no idea...
Suggestions?

You are much better at designing pearl pieces than I am. :)

The color and luster of your golden SS pearls make them stand out. So it will be a challenge to incorporate other pearls into a necklace or bracelet because if they are equally stunning, the goldens would not stand out.

I think a simple strand necklace with a pendant would look nice. I also like this necklace- a lot.

Very epic necklace! Hmm. I’ll have to dig around to see if I can find floral components I like..

Ok. Last pearl purchase of 2021. I couldn’t resist nabbing this mabe pearl pendant from Takahashi since I’m getting the lavender akoya and might as well make the shipping and fees worth it...

Really pretty - looks like it has those Sea of Cortez pearl colours. Loving the round diamond at the bottom; that really finishes it.
