I haven't posted for a long while here. This is what I'm expecting to receive from Cees from Amsterdam Pearl.
A baroque bluish south sea pearl strand and a pair of its matching earrings.

Lovely! They will be so easy to wear with anything! I love a baroque strand.

Gorgeous! That is exactly the color, shape, and luster I want with a baroque SS pearl necklace. I bought and returned a strand because it did not have the qualities that your necklace has. May I ask the size of the pearls and the vendor?

My Tahitian circle pearl collection is finished! The top three stands are my recent acquisitions. These are going to be my summer Tahitians to wear with tank tops and sandals. I see myself wearing these in the park, taking the dogs for a walk, and by the outside fire pit when we have summer barbecues. I am just longing for warm weather.

These are incredible. I especially love the inner two - really fun strands. May I ask where you got them from?

The baroque strand is 11.90 x 10.40mm. The pearl pair's size is 10.47 mm.
The vendor's name is Cees Van Oije from Amsterdam Pearl. He's located in the Netherlands. Occasionally he has a strand of bluish wssp. I got my gssp strand from him a few years ago.

Thank You! And so cost friendly. The top and lower middle strand was bought pre-loved and unworn (one was not strung).

The other two strands were from Wen Pearls on Etsy. I bought her loose, circle peacock pearls for the smaller necklace. The big strand was a one off from Wen. She usually drops a bunch of Tahitians at a time. She had a lot of strands but they did not interest me enough to buy. I still liked to look at Etsy pearls during lunch break. Then one day- after a week of those strands being posted, this big strand showed up. She described them as peacock 11-14mm. I was pleasantly surprised on how nice they were when they arrived.

@Mukti - Thank you for the vendor. Your golden SS strand is so beautiful. I love the snow picture.

Nice find! Her pearls are so affordable too!

Thank you. I have a system from buying from Wen. I usually like her earring or loose pearls. In any given strand or order I plan to not use 20-40% of the pearls which is still quite affordable. Wen has really nice pearls but in my experience there will usually be a few low luster or blemished pearls mixed in. But to be fair- she has sent me two very high grade pearl strands. Both were one-off strands that showed up days after the original drop of Tahitian pearls.

@Lisa Loves Shiny Are these the same pearls that you will use in the long rope? Or will you keep them in shorter strands and simply link them together when you want a long rope? Either way, they're gorgeous. I adore seeing LOTS of things together. :bigsmile:

I promise the warm weather is headed your way, so those Tahitians wont have to wait long

this morning, although sunny is chilly still
its 9.58 and Borris is still in bed and Tibby has gone back to bed
heavy dew on the grass and the sun just seems to be getting up latter and going to bed earlier
And shock horror our Autumn flowering Hoheria tree - that i look forward to every Autumn - is in full bloom already

My silvery keshi pendant from Agustus-Collection, I bought this a few years ago.

And my order from Cees finally arrived. I'm going to string the pearls myself but first I have to find the right clasp. The pearls look silvery in the picture. IRL there's an ice blue shimmer over the pearls' white body color.

Oh how I love this icy, silvery SS strand. The interesting shapes along with the color- swoon worthy.
