by Fly Girl » Jul 29, 2014 The recently concluded 2014 Pearl Ruckus was many things, but one of the greatest treats for me was the sights of magnificant pearls being worn by their owners. I hope others who went to the Ruckus will add to this thread, because I only captured a very few of these beauties. I arrived at Pearl Paradise straight from LAX on Friday afternoon and shortly thereafter found myself at lunch staring at the most magnificent strand of madamas being worn by bsomlo. To those who are wondering if they look different from more ordinary pearls, the answer is yes, they do. Wow. It wasn't until I got to the mansion later that afternoon that I recovered a bit of my senses and began capturing a few of the pearl necklaces being worn. Many strands you have already seen on this forum, and a few will be new to you. All are magnificent. Enjoy!
