Hey friends!

I’m gonna go putter around Mikimoto today. Anyone have any requests of things you’d like to to ask forfor pictures? :)

I’m no @yssie and my photography skills extend to my Photography 1&2 that I took in college years ago. But I do have a macro lens (if they’ll let me use it!)

The pink circle is their AAA Reserve in 7-7.5mn

The green is their AAA Reserve in 8-8.5mm

I can’t remember exactly if they are 8 or 8.5mm so take that with a grain of salt!

The 7.5mm have a distinct strong pink overtone. The 8.5mm have a stronger green tone to them which I did not love.

the yellow are their 7.5mm AA grade. These too had a strong pink tone to them. Shown next to the AAA 8.5mm (left) and AAA 7.5mm (right).

Excuse my horrid hand written descriptions here!!!!

I actually liked the color of the 7.5 AA grade the best with my skin. They did not have green tones and had more of a “classic white cream” color.

Their 18 inch AAA reserve strand in platinum with a diamond on the clasp. Shown next to the AAA 7.5mm studs (in 18k white gold).

The same 18 inch AAA strand in platinum with a diamond clasp, with the 7.5mm AAA studs. I should mention that the pearls on the stand are 7mm. The strand matched the studs perfectly in that they both had similar pink tones.

Thank you for sharing these photos!! That reserve strand looks glorious :love:

The 8 AAA pair isn't very well matched, is it!?
I admit that my eyes go straight to the 7.5 AAA ::)

Threadjacking for one minute to thank @yssie for her amazing taste. (I would add this to the original "pre-loved" thread but it's now closed: https://www.pricescope.com/community/threads/pearl-strands-studs.269920/#post-5052013.) I do not have photos good enough to match @yssie 's so I did not start a new thread. Thought this might be the next-best way to reach the pearl set.

Recently bought this bracelet from her that I had coveted from a distance since she first posted about some of these same pearls.

Spouse has already worn them to two superspreader live in-person events and really enjoys them. Very fun and wearable.

Given the season, probably should have waited a month, in retrospect. :mrgreen2:

This is just a random fresh-out-of-the-box phone photo. Spouse is not quite as "pink" as she looks here.

Thank you @Sprinkles&Stones for taking us to miki store with you!

May I ask why you and @yssie prefer the color of 7.5 AA over 8.5 AAA?

I am still trying to figure what color tones is the most flattering (I have Asian fair warm tone skin) - strong pink with blue vs strong pink with green/blue.

sorry to hijack your thread. I will post this question on my other thread

Green circled pair doesn’t look to match super well in luster. Edit: I personally like a very strong pink that errs violet over a pink that errs peach - that’s personal though ::)

thank you @yssie! :angel: Since you have exceptional eyes for pearls and I trust your taste, may I ask you which akoya you prefer in your personal opinion for a single rolling pendant with a yellow gold chain? (I have included the link below, I didn't want to hijack this thread :razz:) Thank you again!
