I'm getting old and grey, therefore I traded in style for eccentricity. Less stress, and you don't have to worry about it. Kinda kidding, kinda not. I do love pearls though!



I wear tin cups. (Fresh water and semi precious stones along with Tahitian keshi and pearl tin cup)

I also have a lovely Kamoka drop I wear on a wire.

Lastly, I love, LOVE Tahitian pearls. I like ringed, colorful imperfect Tahitians.
The single strand is a highly lustrous but petite Tokki strand. They have all sorts of funky extra bumps.

I have two other ringed pearl strands that I stack to go out.

I would love to see more of how you ladies style your white pearls. They can be so formal but they also like to come out and play.

That dragon fly looks like she could be both casual and glammed up - very pretty indeed

i have some white fresh water pearls from the mall jewler (i know- i know - i could have got something awsome from PP if i had ever even heard of them a few years back)
Anyway they are a bit tight so they are on the restringing list
i have 3 daisy charms to go into the necklase
course im a spacer short (how ????) and the jewler doesn't seem to do them anymore and now i think i want to do a few more daisies 16082571068311755046802.jpg

Those are very pretty @Daisys and Diamonds. I love the charms too. Can you use a necklace extender to lengthen the pearls so you can wear them?

:mrgreen2: ive been just thinking of that
i was thinking of a few extra pears from PP because i have 4 pearl necklase that are all a bit tight
But i think by the time the daises go in it should be find especially if i find 4 more that look similar

Do i even need the spacers?
The lady ive found to knot them also makes silver jewlery so i just assumed she would have a way to make the pearl not rub aganist the charm which has a larger hole ?

I’ve always wondered how charms work on pearl strands without scratching the pearls?

Me too
i was kind of hoping you would know
Someone is bound to know

i actually brought a diamond bead charm for mum's pearls (they are the perfect size but only because they need restrung and the silk is stretched) but i don't want to scratch her ones
I also have two saphire ones ....or are they emerald ? but im going to test the waters with the daisys on the cheaper pearls first

I wonder if you could obtain clear silicone bead bumpers in the appropriate size to protect your pearls? I think it would depend on how large the hole of the charm is.

My 2 strands of long necklaces, in silver links, Tahitians SS, Akoya blue & keshi (can’t recall those are SS or Akoya).
I wear one strand at a time, long for casual, double roll for fancier look. I know they look similar.......just because I couldn’t decide which strand & they was another customer eyeing with her impatient face.....so you all know the rest :mad: E9DD90C4-A963-4DB6-8083-486984DED91B.jpeg 7B2D5638-B854-4C0C-BADA-9119C0CC135B.jpeg

No need to justify here why you needed to buy both

I mentioned before that I had bought some lovely strands of pearls from an Etsy vendor but she sold me one poor quality strand. I usually throw ugly pearls in the trash but decided to use these ugly pearls to make a costume necklace with bronze/red glass beads and some black FW pearls. Pretty sure most people will think the pearls are beads but it is a fun necklace.

I like to wear a single large pearl as a slider pendant on a wire chain on a casual basis.

One end of the chain is screwed on so that the wire can pass though the holes.

I have to be careful not to drop the end when it is loose as it is tiny and difficult to find.

I have 3 pearls to wear as slider pendants so far, and a carved Tahitian is on its way to me from Wen Pearls.

The largest one is a metallic soufflé from PP, the other 2 are inexpensive ones from Wen Pearls: a CFWP flame ball and an "Eddison".

How I would wear them with a flannel shirt in the colder months:

I haven't worn my blue akoya bracelet in a while (you know, last on first off but with no where to go in between). So today I decided to stack them with my fitness watch while ironing :D (But joking aside, I think the watch and pearls might actually go together!)
