Slowly, ever so slowly, I''m building up my pearl collection. I have a 16" strand of 6-7 mm white pearls (no idea what kind, they were my mom''s), 6-7 mm studs (again, no idea), 7-8 mm Tahitian black pearl studs (these are all in Show me your pearls), and now I''m building up a freshwater collection.

So for my friend''s wedding, the bridesmaids'' jewelry were to be pearl studs and pendants. So I splurged a bit and got a 8-9 mm AAA white pearl pendant from the Pearl Outlet and 8-9 mm Freshadama studs from PearlParadise. I also got a AA+ 6-7 mm pink pearl bracelet from PearlParadise for my friend''s (who got married a week ago) bridal shower gift. And my other friend, who was also a bridesmaid, got a 6-7 mm AAA pendant for the wedding (which I ordered, so I have pics of!).

Next up on my list to buy is either a bigger strand (7-8 mm Freshadamas) or a 7-8 mm AAA freshwater 36" strand. Can''t decide!

So first, my 8-9 mm pendant.
