Pearls for your hair?? Sure, why not! I have this fun hair clip I had bought a long time ago 20230308_182450.jpg

Wait, you found one with real pearls???
Omg please share the seller! I absolutely adore pearl headbands and pearl hair accessories but I've only found ones with fake plastic beads.

I was thinking I'd have to make my own!

This is not real, unfortunately!! :( It was from a store by my house maybe 10 yrs ago. If I come across any nice ones, will let you know for sure!! Pearl hairbands are gorgeous too! I have a pink one

I love that ring! If I ever have the heart to drill my supearl that would be the ring I’d put it in!

Wearing @Cerulean’s preloved Gemmie Akoya Pearl 8 mm studs from Andrew Moline!!! They definitely pass the “how many fingers am I holding up?” test! Sadly my mom’s pearl strands look a bit dull and yellow by comparison. All my life they looks super white.

Can pearls be pinked again? 0EA8DB0F-EE7C-4005-8FCD-6B38E739E8BC.jpeg 15879990-4328-4122-87EB-B3A8D23E5A15.jpeg 169922FE-676B-4341-BCEC-3E5791B09838.jpeg

This is from top to bottom my 5.5 mm Akoya from 1992, a graduated strand I found at an antique store (the big ones-might be freshies. Not sure) And then my moms graduated Akoya from about 1962. Much daintier. Still pretty white near the antique store ones.

Aww thank you!



Thank you! I really enjoyed wearing them today too!



Thank you! They are Tasaki cluster akoyas. Here is a better view. They remind me of soap bubbles =)2

The same ring, but with a rose as they both happen to be able to be worn together. So happy…

Earrings and ring today

Here I thought I had your whole pearl collection memorized. I was wrong.

THOSE CLUSTER EARRINGS. Please share a hundred more photos. What do the backs look like? Are they comfy? How wide are they, ish? They do look like little soap bubbles all collecting on a wand, ready to fly away :love:

And the ring!!! I don’t believe I’ve seen this before - obviously I need to stalk your threads more thoroughly :lol: So the small diamond end is swappable? How does that work? I love it with the rose, I have to say :bigsmile:

Your pearls are all beautiful :love: You did really well on Cerulean’s studs, I remember when she bought them - pearls don’t get any better than that pair!

Your older strands are lovely just as they are, IMO. That antiqued lace colour sings “vintage” ❤️ The only thing I would suggest is to give them a thorough once-over, they might need restringing if it’s been a while.

Wow, that Supearl glows like crazy even in the net!!!

It really does look like it is creating its own soft light.

Haha yeah sorry for the cleavage but it’s finally warm enough for dresses!

Haha! I did. I know a great deal when I see them. So lovely. But yeah now I want a matching strand or two.

I doubt my mom ever had hers restrung. I should do that. It might help them.
