Decided to clean the pearls, and hoping posting all the goodies I have will help me realize I have enough and resist temptation to acquire more.

Also would love to see everyone’s collection photos and read comments on how pieces are chosen!

Here are mine,

6377B176-6CD8-40C5-B266-4BAA00678260.jpeg
Started off with the Freshadama white strand then went from there! Most worn are the earrings, followed by the pendants. Purchases from PP, Wen, Kojima. You’d think I wouldn’t need any more but have just bought some of Wen‘s latest batch of rainbow Edisons (which sold out superfast) to make a stretchy bracelet.

From left to right:

Multi-colour Tahitians - this is the first strand I have purchased for myself, about three years ago

Purple freshwaters - the second strand I have purchased for myself and my most recent one. It was purchased just after Covid started - I was feeling that the world was going crazy and needed a pick me up

Akoyas - I am pretty sure the next strand are Akoyas - they were my grandmas

Small baroque south sea - these were purchased for my year 10 formal (not sure if there is a US equivalent of that, something like a middLe school prom?)

Fabulous !
And can't wait to see the Edisons

I'll start with freshwaters. I added a second pic of the whites because I forgot a couple strands in the collection picture. There a a few saltwater pearls mixed in the strands, but not many. My apologies for the poor lighting- I hope to gather some nice pics of my collection in the spring.

Wow !:appl:
I wonder if they miss their buddies ?

Do you ever just have the urge to just play with them ? Like run your fingers through them ?

I am loving this thread! Here is my humble collection. 59D86528-7616-4EA4-80E9-0EDB321E6D28.jpeg

You know i don't know a single person in face to face life who has anything but white pearls
ive seen maybe a Tahitian ring or eaeings down the mall and years ago i saw a paua pearl ring i still dream about
And before Christmas i saw a pink strand in a jewlers window but ive never seen them on anybody
the other night on the news i saw a broadcaster wearing Tahitians but im not sure she was local - it might have been an overseas news item

But you ladies rock the colours !
Im so inspired by everyone !
