I just received these today!
7-7.5 hanadama studs from The Pearl Source. I took advantage of the Black Friday sale at 20% off.
They are beautiful! Better than any of my other pearls.
Pearls are very hard to photograph! I'm sure @molinePDG will agree!

Diamonds and gold chains are nice, but nothing brings a look of soft grace like pearls.

I've always loved them. I was gifted a small pearl pendant in the 2nd grade, and I really loved it. So pearl-love started early for me!
Pearls are mysterious and amazing!

Oh you should totally get gem Tahitians. I only have one from @moline and it’s my favorite of them all. Fancy Tahitians are the opals of pearls, such colors!

Oh, honey, I have seen all your pearls! I love them all.
They are all so delicious! And the golden ones do look like Shale's eyes!

I’m just catching up here - those came in fast!! @stracci2000 Pearl Source did well by you :appl: And you sure don’t seem to be having any difficulty at all photographing them ::):sun:


That’s a great size on you. You have delicate lobes to start with - more delicate than mine, anyway :bigsmile:

I generally prefer larger earring backs than most vendors provide by default... If you’re in the market for larger backs - I like these:

I meant to ask, which color are these?

Thanks @yssie!
I appreciate all your help and advice. The photos you posted of your own strands are a big help,too.
The Pearl Source was lightening fast with their delivery!
I am very pleased and will probably order from them again. They have very good prices and service.

I have the larger earring backs.They make a big difference!
I have noticed that my earlobes are not as firm as they were when I was younger, sad but true. So almost every kind of stud will droop. My 9mm Tahitians droop a lot so I use the larger backs. I guess that's just the physics of a sphere on a thin post in an old lady's earlobe. :lol:

I chose the white overtone. I figured they would stand out more on my skintone. I love them more everyday!

These are beautiful! Glad you treated yourself, you need a classic pair of pearl studs and they look great with that necklace too!
