Lovely! I think taking away that one pearl has IMHO totally changed the look of the strand. It looks very uniform and lustrous.

I agree! It bugged me from the start that the luster on the bicolor was't as high as the others, and the green tone just didn't work. I need to remove the remaining cream looking one because it also has a bit of green and the strand is still a tad long.

Warning this post contains over shares :lol:

So since that wellowing pearl thread ive suddenly become a pearl worry wort

i was cleaning ....the dunny
before i jumped in the shower so i was in my birthday suit and pearls
we had run out of that under the rim gel stuff so i was using bleach
I suddenly though with all this bleach around how will i take my pearls off safely?

So when i took them off i rinsed them under the tap in panic
Then i thought dang !
We have really hard water
So i gave them a quick swish in some bottled water and a dry with a soft cloth and they are lying out on a towel on the bed to fully dry

Yes, i cleaned the loo in nothing but a string of pearls

Defiantly nooooooo pictures!

Wore this to my pfizer jab today. I used Pattye's Storm for this strand. Despite wanting to go funky with a bright thread, I'm simply not adventurous enough :lol: Removed 3 pearls from the original strand, including the bi-color one. (Half is green-toned yellow and it clashed against my skin) This strand is an inch longer than the GSS and the front kind of dips into a V shape because they are round/shorter width wise and my collar bones push it out on the sides. I might have to remove one more to get the rounded drape. It was pulled back for photos so it didn't dip weird here.

Not being creepy, but you have a neck for pearls. Seriously!

I posted this in another thread but I can’t not share with the pearlites as well - studs and stations yesterday!!

Station necklace was made by WF - 18k RG with six scattered bezelled diamonds, and akoya from Andrew. Girls - WF did the most amazing job setting these pearls. The cups are handmade and they are seriously picture perfect. Heck they’re macro picture perfect. Who thinks of WF for pearls!? But I can’t recommend them enough. :love: :appl:

This is so good! I love how it drapes. You guys are such bad influences, I've been buying pearls like... almost every day this past week. There are packages showing up every day!

They did a great job and I love the longer length. Did you manage to keep it around your neck or was the temptation to wear it wrapped as a bracelet too great?!

Love this, a step up from a tin cup. I can see this being worn to an important business meeting.

Welcome, stay and become poorer :lol:

I keep a long-running wishlist, and I was looking at some of my 2018 updates last night - in March 2018 my Pearls section had one want. “Akoya bracelet”. That’s it. :silenced: :shock:

My younger self was so cute. :bigsmile:

@CMN, @ForteKitty, @lissyflo (I kept it on the neck for at least an hour after taking photos!! :bigsmile:), @Mukti, @oceanblue, everyone else here - thank you ladies (and gents!)!! I’m super happy with this one! I just had an extender made, and now it’s a hair under 40” - this is my happy-rope length ::)

The pearls in the necklace are from an 8-8.5mm strand - my first purchase from Andrew! I made two bracelets and used most of the leftovers here ::)

This thread inspired me to pick up some pearls. I ordered from the Pearl Source over the weekend and they arrived yesterday. Just dipping my toe into pearls- these are pretty affordable freshwater, 7-8 mm I believe, 18 inches with a white gold clasp. I thought they were pretty and I was pleasantly surprised and how nice they were packaged.

I love this stack. The colors simply pop on your skin.
Keep wearing your pearls and post them here. I love seeing you wearing them. :)

So. Confession time. I really don't ever wear jewellery at home. I've got pieces that used to be staples that haven't seen the light of day in over a year. And I know that's so bad for organic materials!! So I'm using this thread as personal incentive to actually wear my d*mn pearls. And after three days of daily wear... I got dressed today and had a "do I really have to?" moment.

"Yes. Yes, oh my goodness, you really have to. If you won't wear them you shouldn't own them!!"

So here's today's #I'mTrying stack :lol: Vintage coral and pearls. 6-6.5mm akoya gemmies from Andrew Moline. The larger coral beads are from an antique strand that I bought as "angel skin", but I wouldn't call them that - I'd call them "salmon"; I had them strung them with baby 14k RG beads. The smallers are from a strand that's been in my family for eons. They show their age - someone was terribly careless with these poor darlings! But the beads are small enough that the crazing and chipping isn't really noticeable... I'm hoping I can hydrate them into stability, at least for another generation or two ::)

Ugh I am soooo helplessly jealous that this color of coral looks so good on you! I love. that. color..but alas, my love for pale orangey pinks will forever be unrequited! :lol: It would absolutely dissolve into my skin...

But it looks amazing on you, so at least I can live vicariously!

And your gemmies from Andrew positively glow! No surprise there... :kiss2:

These earings are quite probably the nicest thing i own
they came in a very generouse care/encouragement/ project package from 3 very generouse PSers 20210312_213001.jpg
They will be my benchmarck of luster when i purchase future pearls
They are
7-7.5mm "AAA" akoya
They are sp beautiful and i feel very spoilt and fortunate to receive them and the other things in the most extraordinary little mystery box

They look soo beautiful on you! I love your strand as well.
