truly honestly, if you are not in love with them return them. I would wear them a few more times though, not to convince yourself to keep them, but maybe you can figure out exactly what you would want in the future. Seems you already have a clue (better matching with overtones and luster) but there could be other things you don't think of as well.Susan7639|1457829287|4004164 said:Hi Guys! My camera function that gets close shots is not working I am very used to wearing silver/white gold/plat that blends in with my clothing and I am not sure I was prepared for all that white around my neck, while I admire it on others. Add that to the fact that I just let my hair go gray and if I wear certain colors of white it brings out any yellow tones in my hair. I get the sense from people's comments about Edison pricing that this may not have been a really great example of one. There are a few pearls that, to my eye, look like they don't belong with the others and one side looks noticeably higher luster and pinker than the other side. This may be my naiveté about pearls but these are just not a wow for me, on me, like I though Baby Nurse's were. Also the biggest pearl being constantly off center would make be bonkers. Too much second guessing right off the bat for me!

I usually wear my pearl ropes off center on purpose with the clasp in the front or on the side, partly so I don't have to deal with adjusting the pearls. I haven't received my new Edisons yet, so I'm not sure how they'll work for me, either. I just know I liked the look of Baby Nurse's strand, too.
But if the pearls themselves are not wowing you, send them back. I usually have an initial gut reaction to clothing or jewelry that occurs immediately when I try they on, and it's usually right.

My SSP are whiter than even my whitest freshwaters. It's a cooler shade of white.Susan7639|1457933351|4004887 said:I think part of the problem is the day I bought it I was in a store with a South Seas strand of about the same size. When I put them next to each other there really was no comparison. it may not be that way with all Edisons but to me, these were like night and day and I do not have a discerning eye.
