I did pick up a AAA Multicolor Tahitian I had been eyeing for quite a number of weeks - the sale price was almost $1K less, so I am very, very glad I waited to purchase - really looking forward to seeing it IRL.

Anyone else take advantage of this sale? - so many beautiful options at a wide range of price points!

I have been waiting for this every since the blog posts showing these loose pearls! I have wanted to get a baroque Tahitian pearl strand as a gift for my mother for quite a while. She would never buy something like that for herself, but it's just her style.

I ordered two strands but will probably be returning one. I really wanted large pearls, dark bodycolor with vivid overtones, pleasing shapes, smooth and fairly clean surface, although I don't mind circles at all. I acted fast because I didn't want the perfect strand to get snapped up! Here are the ones I picked (both the same price) because they seemed to tick all my boxes. Thoughts?


"18-inch AA+/AAA 10.1-12.8 mm Baroque Tahitian Pearl Necklace
This large strand features baroque Tahitian pearls with a deep green bodycolor and colorful peacock overtones. The pearls are well-matched and large, at 10.1 to 12.8 mm. The pearls have very light blemishes, smooth surfaces, very high luster and orient."


18-inch AA+/AAA 9.9-12.9 mm Baroque Tahitian Pearl Necklace
This stunning strand features baroque Tahitian pearls with a very dark green bodycolor a cherry-peacock overtones. The pearls are well-matched and quite large with little to no visible blemishing and sharp, mirror-like reflection.

I was too slow I guess because I couldn't check out the strand I had in my cart.

I picked up a rope but it's no longer listed so I can't post a picture. I think I'll ask them for the glamour shot!

double double, of the two you posted, I like the first strand. the colors (at least from the picture) look stronger.

4RG, I was drooling over the same strand! I hope someone gets it so I am not tempted. :wall: I'm trying to be good because I have a pearlie project in the works right now.

That strand would be in my cart so fast if I did not already have 2 strands waiting for me from that lot. When I get them I will post pictures.

I think I may have bought the strand you're talking about but can't see the link (because it's gone) and it's not on the site anymore. I can't see what I bought! I bought in a blur of typing details because i thought it was so pretty and thought I'd review at my leisure later. It was TAN200-813-WP. AAA 8.8 (I think) to 11.5.

It's always so hard to know from the pictures and being in Australia means I can't assume I'll send back - postage is expensive. So I am super pleased that you guys with your eye for pearls have endorsed this one. Jeremy just sent me the photo and it's gorgeous.

How did you do that? Yes that's the one.

I won't post pictures now - dmz has kindly provided them for us :)

dmz, you should have a very happy wife!

doubledouble, they both look lovely. Based on those pictures, I prefer the coloration of the first strand, but it would come down to which has the better luster and color IRL.
