How's Everyone Who Is On a Pearl Ban Doing?

OK guys- hypothetical question. If you were able to buy a pre-loved baroque SS necklace for the cost of 2 weeks lunch money and you packed a lunch instead of buying for the next two weeks- is that considered breaking your ban?

This is the philosophy I use.

If I calculate as of today, looks like buying pearls has me packing my lunch for the next.... ah, shoot.

Looks like I'm packing cold lunch for the next 147 years.

:lol:

This is an opportunity to rescue a strand of golden pearls. Poor darlings need a neck.

So what you are saying is that you are on a healthy eating plan for longevity and pearls provide the incentive. I like the way you think. :)

And they will help distract me from the wrinkles that are gathering there. :lol-2:

Love them! Are there green overtones? I've been really into GSS with green overtones lately.

@Lisa Loves Shiny, they're nice! :appl:
Neck shot please, when you get a chance?


The color is lovely. I look forward to the neck shot in the future. What an awesome fine! Worth all the brown bag lunches!

Here you go ladies. Part of my summer saltwater collection of pearls. Pretty, but inexpensive enough to wear in hot, sweaty weather without worrying that you can't replace them. :) Sorry this pic is so big. I reduced it to little bigger than my avatar pic and it still comes out big.

Oh I love the look of both strands together! They complement each other beautifully. It makes me want them both:cool2:

Sooo I didn’t buy any more pearls. But I did buy this vintage diamond bow component to incorporate into a pearl strand. That doesn’t count as violating a pearl ban right?

Beautiful! That IMHO is saving a piece of history. Definitely not breaking a pearl ban.
