This one is special to me.

The charm bracelet was given to me by a very close family friend. He passed away 2 months ago after battling lung cancer.

He gave me this bracelet over a decade ago, and I finally got it shortened so I could wear it and remember him. I assume they are freshwater pearls, it is sterling silver with little 14k gold details.

He got it on a trip to New Mexico where he loved to go shopping. He was a special man, loved his luxury items, and exposed me to a type of worldliness and decadence that I didn't know was possible.

I attribute my love for jewelry in part to him.

My pearls are at a distribution center 45 min from my house, but somehow not arriving until wednesday. I am so. Impatient.

I don’t blame you! I’ve totally had fantasies of driving over to to distribution hubs and (sweetly) demanding that they give me package!

“Listen, this is going to be for both of us. I saved you the trip!”

Took these out to play with my new jadeite earrings. Very “taitai” (local slang for lady of leisure) look right?

Recently got these Edisons from Ocean Rhyme and i love these! They are very metallic and the changes from a pink mauve in daylight to a golden pistachio indoors.

Edit: adding vendor photos to show pinky tones. It really looks like this in the sunlight! Love how shifty the color is. I've been just holding them and staring at them haha.

These were my grandmother’s pearls. She had nicer strands that were claimed by other family members, but these seem to be in good shape and are quite lovely. Not perfect, but special.

The clasp is especially remarkable-it hugs the pearl at the end of the strand. They are my first strand and I’m in love! The choker length is perfect

It makes me feel warm and fuzzy when I put them on.
And I agree - I have cousins who somehow landed the nicer strings of pearls and I just hope they don’t languish in a box!

Cross posting from the VCA thread again - a comparison of mother of pearl cabs that are bezelled and that are unbordered. I’ll be weird and just quote myself on the relevant bit -

The metal boundary seems to have two effects: It both darkens the white MOP and, interestingly, appears to make it more iridescent. On close inspection the cabs in both [pairs of earrings] have some texture within the material, and in the [smaller pair] that texture picks up light and turns it into very subtle colour play, like [flat white MOP] slabs do - whereas in the [bigger pair] all I see is smooth bright white pearl sheen that somehow glosses right over the texture.
