would anyone happen to know anything about kamala's pearl necklace during the VP debate??

it appeared to have very light green shimmery stones in addition to some super lustrous pearls. im guessing about 9mm, or so, for the pearls ...

it is classic but also so unique and pretty ...

I was looking at it too. I was thinking pearls and turquoise?
It also looks like she wears a cabochon amethyst ring on her right hand.
I know she has a Tahitian strand which I have seen her wear many times.

to me, the stones seemed too light to be emeralds ... but my husband did think they were emeralds though

She seems to wear pearls all the time.
Michelle Obama liked pearls, too, but I think her pearls were from Carolee, which are faux.
And of course Barbara Bush wore faux pearls.
Nancy Pelosi has some big South Seas.
Sara Sanders had a nice strand which she wore all the time.

of all the pearl wearers, you've mentioned, my favourite are kamala's debate pearls. i could hardly take my eyes off of them. i think part of the appeal, for me, was the pale green gems ...

Ms. Harris is often seen in pearls! My best guess to her necklace from the VP debate would be freshwater pearls with small stones of turquoise set underneath.

They could also be akoya, but some photos I saw looked like some of the pearls were not completely round, so Freshwater remains my most likely guess.

i truly did not know that turquoise could shimmer and sparkle like that!??!

the pale green stones on her pearls looked faceted, though ...

It's entirely possible they were something else besides turquoise. I didn't watch, so don't know how they looked moving or on video. I'm no turquoise expert; it was just my first hunch.

Oh you guys! I was Dying over her right-hand ring. I googled it to see if i could find a closer look. then after an hour (lol) decided I was being petty/materialistic when literally, the fate of the nation (world) rests on this election and I. Need. To. See. Her. Ring. Close. Up! Aaagh.

Glad I’m not alone in sparkle curiosity :) and sorry to hijack the thread.

I just pulled up some videos of the debate and tried to see exactly what was going on with her necklace. I zoomed in as far as I could.
I'm pretty sure that that the blue stones were not faceted.

i completely and totally understand!! i was captivated and fascinated by her pearl necklace!

i noticed her ring, too. it's either a cabochon amethyst as @stracci2000 mentioned or it could be a purple sapphire. im leaning more towards sapphire as it's harder on the mohs scale but it really could be either

I did look at that necklace up close. The smaller cabs are turquoise for sure.

I thought she looked great overall, but am I the only one who didn't like the necklace and earrings together? I would have opted for one or the other.

Oh well, at least she skipped the fly accessory.

i didn't really care for the earrings either. the more mature lady politicians really favour that larger mabe pearl look, though

Love the necklace. It took me about 2 weeks to find it. Thrilled when I found it.:mrgreen2:
Bummed about the price ! Oh well. $26,440 :naughty:
It is a beautiful piece !
wow! good job! well done! thank you!!
yes, the necklace is pricier. but they aren't just strung together. its an entire necklace, fabricated with full gold foundation back. pity the description doesn't indicate akoya pearl measurement.

for those that could tell from the debate that the stones were turquoise, all i have to say is, you have my *admiration* for being able to tell what they were. you have got some sharp, sharp eagle eyes!!

the akoyas looked so lustrous on television but not so much on the website ...
