When I used to visit the other pearl forum I remember some members coveted that necklace. So you are in good company. I think it is beautiful and versatile. Are you considering purchasing it or creating a necklace using it as inspiration?

I think it’s hard to judge pearls by photo unless you’ve bought from them a lot. I think you can ask for more photos though from the sales team

Beautiful strand. I try to weigh value by usability. How often will I wear it? That looks like a wonderful strand to dress up or down. T-shirts to work to date night.

Not sure. I wanted to make my own medley, but that one is just crazy. Almost too long. And it is all silver, I like color.

To my eye (and monitors display differently, as do eyes perceive color differently), it looks like there's plenty of color in the strand—I see aubergines, blues, greens, etc. Something you'd likely notice more in real life than on screen.

It might be heavy, too, at that length, depending on the size of the pearls?

You could also take it apart and make different strands out of it! A cool strand, a warm strand, a silver strand. :bigsmile:Long strands, short strands, bracelets, chokers...

I think it’s too long, may be better to have fewer high quality pearls? Two or three turns always looks nice, so less than 54 inches?

It's beautiful but I don't think I'd know what to do with 10 feet of pearls. I get wrapped up in 54 inches! Do you know how you'd style it and think you'd get enough wear to justify the cost? That's how I talk myself into and out of jewelry.

I hope it wasn’t a lurker! It always makes me so paranoid...
