Thank you! I adore Caysie’s style - throwbacks to bygone eras with modern flair and precision craftsmanship And this ring is just so very “me”Such an amazing ring. I have never seen anything like that.
this word surly needs some magic right now
and Yssie, your fairy ring eternity does just that
Thank you!! It all turned out so perfectly, I’m beyond happyWow! This is AMAZING. Love the colours, love the execution
Thank you!!Wow!!! Amazing result !!! Congrats!!!
I’m running errands today - quickie before I head home My trustee 14k RG stacker band isn’t an exact colour match but it’s close enough. I did this all wrong, the logo on the steering wheel is supposed to be a horse or a bull and I’m supposed to be somewhere fancy not the grocery parking lot - such an Instaembarrassment
Thank you so much Dandi!!
Other PSers and I buy through Instagram (@takahashi_pearl_official). @MakingTheGrade was the PSer who found them! They’re a wholesaler based in Japan that started selling direct to consumer because of Covid, so buying from them is… Not exactly like buying from a US-based retailer. Here’s a post from @MakingTheGrade about that (link should take you straight to post #37):How do you buy from them? Do they have a website? I tried Googling but only saw a Japanese website that I can't make heads or tails of

Totally distracted through movie night Which just so happened to also feature the popcorn kernels that I used for these pics earlier today
I know there are some on here who consider me a needlessly harsh mistress when it comes to quality and finish. I think myDBTY earlier this year, and these photos of Caysie's work - both vendors that, again, don't routinely work with pearls - prove rather conclusively that my expectations are neither unrealistic nor unobtainable.
Jewellers who take pride in their workmanship aren't afraid of the macro lens, and they don't use organic nuance as a scapegoat for imprecise execution. Consumers, don't ever let anyone make you feel obligated to settle for anything less than everything you want.
