On 4/21/2014 Pagan said: I just double-checked and no, it's strung exactly the same way as the two TSVs. It even has the same clasp. This 36" OTO was item number J292783 but you don't get much of a look at it in the video. Edit - I think I received the right necklace but these particular pearls just don't have long tails. Maybe I was just lucky/unlucky ... I haven't decided which yet! But to be clear, the TSV only came in the two lengths; it is the OTO that was the 36" length, correct? And I do see the video does make them look more like a fireball with a substantial tail. The tsv strands I... Continue Reading

On 4/21/2014 Pagan said: I ordered all three lengths to choose between since they were on easy pay. Love that for trying stuff! All three are exactly the same. All beautiful but there's no difference in the pearl shape. The longest 36" was sold as having elongated pearls but mine is identical to the shorter lengths. You can put all three together and can't identify which is which. Can't decide whether to keep the 36" in order to 1) wear it long and 2) double it. Or keep the two shorter lengths to 1) wear separately 2) layer together or 3) attach by the rings to make one long 38" necklace. The... Continue Reading

I finally had a chance to look at the pearls under my magnifying lens. The wire is actually a thin cable (several wires twisted together). The cable is much stronger than just a simple wire (think David Yurman or Charriol wire jewelry or even the cable cars in San Fran!). Still, pearls on wire don't really seem to make much sense as there is no buffer between the pearls. I LOVE the notion of colored cord (silk or synthetic) with pearls. I've never seen that used before. I also saw a really cool stringing a friend recently had done with her tahitians....she has larger baroques strung with... Continue Reading

The factors that contribute to pearl value are fairly consistent. Round, smooth, surface blemishes, depth of nacre, quality of nacre, quality of orient ... If you don't own high-quality pearls for a side-by-side, you can find pearl buying guides (I got mine from the library). It's helpful to kook at the photos. Also, if you find jewelry stores to be intimidating, you can look at pearls at Costco. See what a $10... Continue Reading
