    HHP mom, so what did u do with the other loose ssp? I too have a weakness for wSSP with blue overtones. I like your pendant a lot.

    As promised, but rather belatedly, pictures of the blue pearl pendant which I gifted to my mom. They aren't very good but a little eyecandy is eyecandy?

    In the box. The pearl looks kinda grey here but it is a pretty blue with rose overtones in real life.

    Annd a neckshot on me. :3

    I love love love this pendant and my mum was all "I've never seen a blue pearl before" so this worked out very nicely :3 So I gotta thank Hisano for sending me pics and answering my (almost) endless questions.

    No kidding. Still no response. I'm not in the US and can't make international calls at work so this is frustrating! Think I'll give up until after the holiday and then make them a mother's day gift.

    Have to say I am really disappointed in PP's customer service.

    I am so sorry to hear this. I do know it is not on purpose. Unfortunatly things happen and sometimes emails do get lost. Post here what you want and I will forward it on for you. This coming Friday is Black Friday and the following Monday is Cyber Monday in the US so there will be very special pearls up for grabs so check their web page and blog.

    I have to agree with you on this one, chemgirl. I think PP might be too overwhelmed to communicate effectively with their customers. When I ordered my pearls, I felt like my emails to PP responses had a ratio of 2:1. I didn't hear anything communicated to me about order status or shipment - just a notice from UPS saying they had shipped my order.

    I'm exchanging my necklace from 16" to 18" now and though my necklace arrived back at their warehouse on Monday (I know because I tracked it), I haven't heard anything back from them acknowledging the receipt. I have to keep hounding them to figure out where my stuff is. I've never had to do this with a vendor before.

    Thank you so much! I was looking for tahitian studs with copper overtone. Something 9.00 mm ish would be perfect. Their website doesn't list copper overtone as an option anymore so had emailed sales to inquire about it. I have received emails from them regarding other purchases so not sure what happened this time.

    I love their pearls and am a repeat customer so was surprised by this. Bet they are very busy and email might have been misplaced.

    I do plan on checking out the black friday sale!

    Wow flygirl, I haven't been on here in ages but you have the very pic I was hoping to see! Those graduated metallic strands caught my eye, and I was hoping to find a neckshot here. I'll have to catch up on all the threads, but it looks like you've been busy with the pearls - they're all gorgeous! :appl:

    Thanks! I believe the email address on their website has changed recently. My other emails were sent to a sales address that has since been replaced by their support email address. This explains a lot!

    I forwarded my original request to the support email address so hopefully they get it this time!

    Hi cellentani. So nice to see you again. Yes, I've been playing in the pearl playbox for the past couple of years. I'm glad you find the metallic graduated freshwater neckshot helpful. It is a bit of an awkward pose, one arm up holding the pearl strand a bit off center, but you get the idea. They are so gorgeous. Graduated colored pearls. Such a pretty twist on the classic white graduated pearl strands. The strand is back at PP being strung. I'll be sure to post a better neckshot when I get it back.

    I got the flag from PP, where they got it from I don't know. It contains a .15 point diamond.

    Chemgirl - I've also used their Chat Online function when I can't use the phone during their regular business hours and the service is excellent!

    I am glad you resent your email and it is all working out. Make sure you check the Black Friday sale it should be out of this world.

    My graduated metallic lavender necklace and bracelet are ready for shipping. Here is a photo to keep me, and all of you, satisfied until they arrive. :naughty:

    Thank you so much to 4Ranch Girl and to Jeremy Shepherd and Hisano and the rest of the staff at Pearl Paradise. I had a few alterations made to made the necklace longer, changed the clasp and the bracelet is strung on elastic. :cheeky:

    Looking forward to receiving these and to the Black Friday sale. In the meantime, everyone have a wonderful Thanksgiving. :wavey:

    Hi FlyGirl!

    I hope your Thanksgiving is full of laughter & love! It's too bad you won't be sporting your gorgeous metallic lavender pearls for the feast!!! The colors and luster are amazing and I do like elastic bracelets (I have a few from PP myself). See you at the sales (I'll be peaking in the window)!

    Hi Katbran,
    I think Jeremy referred to it as a flame bail. And I don't think it's on their website. But email Jeremy and ask for the flame pendant that Wendy had her Edison set on (from the Pricescope video chat). It holds a 15 point diamond (IMR). :)
