@siamese3 beautiful!
Would you mind sharing deets on your tennis necklace? Does it flip? Thank you!

It does not flip! It was kind of an impulse purchase at a local jewelry store where I have bought some pieces in the past. My mom was getting a watch battery changed and I was just browsing while we waited.. dangerous a day before my birthday .. I had been thinking I would like one for a while and this one ticked off the boxes.. I could wear it casually and layer it. I kind of liked that it was dainty ish and I much preferred the yellow gold to the white. The owner's daughter has one and she told that it did not flip. I don't know who the manufacturer is & don't remember the specs but I might have the receipt somewhere.... I check tomorrow if you like.

If you wouldn’t mind that would be amazing! Even a photo of the underside of the necklace is helpful too if it doesn’t flip! Thank you!!

I do have an old pearl necklace with small pearls that I purchased in my 30’s. I know they’re not good but no idea what they are..I remember paying $600 for the necklace. This was a long time ago..lol They’re hand knotted but don’t have a sheen..I’ll post it when I get back to Pa. Maybe someone can tell me how bad they are. I’ll wear them with my messy neck! Perfect! :lol:

how are we going with those pearls ?

That's gorgeous!! All Tiffany? You queen, you!!

Yes, but for the leaf. Of course I wish it were Angela Cummings for Tiffany, but, alas, it was a purchase at a mall in Maui.. I "always" have my eye out for an AC leaf.

I have to find them....I’m afraid they’re really crummy pearls. At least I won’t have to worry about them scratching on my neck mess..

So I can't find the receipt, but I think it was around 2.5 ctw..I liked that it was a choker, but adjustable..you can see that it is more flexible one way than the other so you just need to put it on correctly.

I keep goin back to this - it is so beautiful! Can you tell me the measurements of the carabiner?
There is a photo of it..it's quite delicate. It's approximately 1.75 cm wide & 14kt. I actually bought it at tjmaxx, strangely enough. It was in the clearance area. I have been trying to decide on which Marla Aaron babylock I wanted and I thought it would be a nice experiment, even though I kind of hate copies of things. I still haven't decided, lol.

Thank you so much!

Your welcome, but I feel like I wasn't very helpful! It's nice to be able to try things on, but it's often the case that what I am looking for I can't actually find locally. Thank goodness!!

It actually looks like the perfect size/heft for your neck mess. I've been looking on etsy for one, but it is hard to judge visual weight without a neck shot. This gives me a great reference. TJMaxx-what an awesome find!

It's actually turned out to be quite wearable & I really like it with the delicate square link chain just on it's own. The clerk thought it was such an odd item, and thought the reduced price of $39 was crazy.

Holy cannoli! I am LOVING all of these!!! I tried out a couple pearl strands today. I like the gold/brown strand but not the (I can’t remember what it’s called—they’re from Pearl Paradise a couple years ago) “regular” ones.

Then maybe I’ll actually wear that PP strand now! They were a gift and not something I thoroughly researched so I’m not all that excited about them. I can see giving them to my daughter for a birthday or graduation at some point but otherwise they aren’t super significant and they weren’t at all expensive relative to high quality pearls. Thank you!
