I've wanted an opera length strand of really good blues ever since I found out they existed, but I had not found quite the right ones yet. I think these are going to be the ones.
I'm slightly terrified of what else I may find on PP come Thursday night. I really shouldn't be buying anything else right now.
So true. The sweet, sweet price was an incentive, and I can always gift one if I decide that two are one too many. But, I saw a sample of these pearls in person at the ruckus this summer, and I expect the colors to be amazing.BWeaves|1448475497|3954096 said:Oh, I just noticed that Fly Girl bought 2 strands, too.
They're like Lays Potato Chips. We can't buy just one.

So if I had been inclined to buy some, I would have thought about doubling or tripling up too.

My thoughts exactly Cmd2014. If they are really amazing IRL, i would definitely buy another and bigger strand if they become available next year. I have mine strung to only 16.5" and I'm planning to make a short tin cup with the rest of the pearls to layer with the strand.
I think i'm having the opposite of the "bigger pearl syndrome". I've been getting rid of my bigger pearls recently. I'm even thinking of selling my baby ripples which are only 10-11mm. I'm finding them too big and too "roundish".
Those blue baroque akoya look terrific with the Sea of Cortez peanut. So pretty, and I know how she loves her blue pearls.NacreLover|1448488449|3954179 said:Here are 4ranchgirls Vietnamese strands Hisano selected to match her Sea of Cortez "Peanut"
Exactly! After seeing 4RG's strands with her SoC pendant, I'm wondering whether the blue or the pistachio that I have coming is going to look better with my SoC mabe pendant?katbran|1448676232|3954824 said:They are such lovely tiny little pearls ! The colors are gorgeous. i do like the idea of using them for a pendant. I was at a lunch yesterday and my friend had a Bulgari diamond pendant hanging from a 5mm strand of pearls...made me think of the blue ones...hmmm
