may i please enquire about what is so special about Maria Aaron's locks
im thinking they must be exceptional for you to use on these pearls

Sure! She makes all kinds of functional pretty locks that you can put charms on or wear as is. They are decorative but mine have sentimental meaning. You can engrave the locks too. You wear the locks on the front or side, not the back.

I went a little overboard these past few weeks. Here is "some" of it:

Takahashi silver akoyas 10-10.5mm, and 8.5-11mm Tahitians:

Bunches of earrings from everywhere. Tahitians, blue-grey akoyas, pink akoyas, GSS, white FW. Plus some from my mom from 20 years ago that I didn't remember having! (the three pendants and all the little pink akoyas) Please excuse the terrible white freshwaters, I know they're meh. They were purchased to test out color and luckily for my wallet white looks terrible on me so WSS are not in my future!

Luster is just slightly better when comparing Takahashi with CMW bracelets, but the CMW strands have better color. I didn't compare them to the mermaid strand yet. I'll get some tray photos with them all side by side when the last CMW bracelet set arrive. I received Aroma, Wheelsup already, and couldn't resist Naomi lol. Naomi should be here tuesday.

Thanks! My husband asked, "why do you have two grey pairs of earrings?" and I told him I got the larger green ones to match the pendants from my mom.

Him: "aren't they all the same color" :???:
Me: "uh no... one pair is green and matches the pendants, and it's also larger." (color difference was very obvious in person)
Him: "everything looks the same to me, and all the white ones look the same too" (as he points to the grey silver akoyas, pink akoyas, white FW, and the baroque blue/pink overtone pendant from my mom) :rolleyes::wall:

Bless his heart! Anytime my DH and I are together and someone compliments my jewelry he says "I bought that for her" even though it is not true. But in his defense he tells me to buy whatever I want and offers to pay for it "if you need me to". Lol

Added new Takahashi 8.5-9mm silvery grey Akoya dangles to the mix, in the row just under the GSS. OceanRhyme's 8.6mm blue-silver Akoyas studs (below the Takahashi dangles) are a tad sharper in luster and darker in body color. Also better photos of the medium pastel green Tahitians from JNBgems I bought to match pendants from mom, which is an excellent match given the pictures looked much more gray and lighter in color.
