Thank you, Rubybrick!
Love at first sight means that it is meant to be. They could not be more beautiful!Thank you Bluegemz, I'm very happy with my first necklace purchase. Bought it as a strand, chose the length and it was strung for me by Wendy from Pearlescence, it's 16 inches. She did a great job! This was one of only two natural white strands with gold overtone and I jumped on it as soon as I could. It is AA+, not AAA, but for me it's AAAAAAA if you know what I mean, love at first sight.
Marionberry, I contacted Douglas and asked what he had in stock. I asked for round and colorful keshi to use in this project. He sent photos and then brought them to the ruckus in California for me to see in person.Nacrelover, sorry for digging out this old post, but I am super curious about where to get such small SoC pearls. I hear the big ones are so very rare but I still cannot find the small ones anywhere, it seems in Douglas' web shop only 10mm+ ones are listed...
I'm a constant pearl thread lurker but haven't made it over to post- until now!
Heres my little contribution;
-Two separate antiqued leather slide knot bracelets that I made myself with two hand picked Tahitian pearls. I edited the photo to better show what I see in person. One has a greenish tinge and the other a pink tinge. Oh how I love highly circled Tahitians! I have another larger circled peacock coming in the mail any day now, which I will make another bracelet with (:
- Heres a pearl ring that I recently bought. Photos are all vendors.
The center pearl is white at 9mm and is set in a 14k yellow gold setting with two rubies, one on each side.
Ever since I saw it its been a dream pearl ring for a light non Tahitian pearl anyways.)
I had been lusting for it for over a year and a half now and it never sold. Finally she started accepting offers and took mine! Yay!
Your tin cup is gorgeous, @vintageloves! Luster is just wonderful
My new tin cup akoya pearls. I was surprised that I really can see the difference between these pearls and the gem quality freshwater strand I have. This is a replacement Christmas gift for the golden south sea strand my husband got me, which I didn't think was as wearable as something like this.
