15.4mm You weren’t kidding about “large”!!
The iridescence looks so strong on those - can’t wait to hear what you think when you get them!!
So this is now becoming my pearl buying diary thread. I did a thing and I'm not even a little sorry. So excited!!!
The luster on those SS. Holy smokes lovedogs
The freshie multicolours are gorgeous too! But I get it… I’d have a hard time taking my eyes off the SS. Sorry, but everything else is coming in second for the moment
I do think the net obscures surface details a fair amount. Cause the cross crossing is the first thing your eyes see - you have to really focus to register the details of the pearl behind the netting, outside of stuff like colour and a general perception of shape and luster… I think I prob wouldn’t put that one in a net, honestly. The unique shape and the circling are begging to be celebrated out in the open
I'm so pleased that you love your Aussie Pearls ! You can' t beat South Sea - the beauty will last a lifetime. Pop them out of the Oyster and given 'em a wash... and' Bob's your Uncle '
Thanks for always helping me find the fat circle pearls
