I got my metallic white 11-12mm studs from Pearls of Joy yesterday. I like them very much. Here is my comparison with my other metallic white pearls.
From the left -- 9-10mm stud from Pure Pearls, 11-12mm PoJ studs, 13.6mm button stud from Pearlescence, 11-12mm drop from PoJ. I have also thrown in there my 8.5-9.0mm strand from Pure Pearls (I had to put a pen in the box so they wouldn't roll around).

So I did some research and realised that 'mirror metallics' are really rare and I probably had wrong expectations in the first place about metallics... Kevin explained that "A metallic pearl is not just a high surface luster, but it's a particular type of luster that gives it that metallic look. This is characterized by the blue/green overtone that is often displayed on metallic pearls.".

And since large round metallics are rare and most importantly I've grown fonder of them so the studs will be staying with me! :dance:

And this can probably be a whole other thread but I've recently ordered from various vendors 13, 14 and 15 mm studs. :errrr:
Yeah, serious PSS going on here.

15 mm STUDS? Whoa! My ears can just barely handle 12 mm drops. I can't even imagine 15 mm studs.

Photos when you get them, please?
