Wahoo! It’s here! While I wait in line at the post office to acquire it, I thought I’d start off with all the vendor photos I’ve accumulated.

It’s a graduated strand that goes from 10-11.6mm. 19 Tahitians and 20 akoyas.

Apparently 10mm top tier akoya are increasingly hard to find currently given recent akoya die offs from an unclear pathogen. So larger sizes akoyas are in limited production over the next 2 years at least.

I am completely tacky and have to ask which vendor you got this from? It is seriously badass.

Aaaah! It’s so cool/edgy but chic at the same time. I absolutely love it. Can’t wait for more of your thoughts and photos. You must be over the moon happy with it.

Whoa! Simply gorgeous! Plus, they look much larger than 10-11mm on you! You must have a delicate neck! It's a beeeeautiful strand, and happy congrats to you, @MakingTheGrade!

They could just make this pic their advert and they’d seriously sell ombres by the hank :love: :cool2::appl::bigsmile:

For real. If there was ever a way to make pearls “cool”, “accessible”, and “wearable” - you NAILED it.
