I've been collecting seashells for as long as I can remember. From east to west, coast to coast, and shore to shore, I always find a treasure to keep, and adore.

Pearl Snobbery

I'm turning into a pearl snob...or I've TURNED into a pearl snob.

I just ordered some pearls, and I noticed I was only buying A+ and AAA pearls, with and without the + sign.

Oh Dear!

It was bound to happen.

Not only do I love the smooth blemish free pearls, but I'm really lovin' the funky shaped pearls, too. Those high dollar baroque pearls are drool worthy!

A while back (a LONG while back, like almost a year ago) I showed you some pearls I had bought.....
SO pretty!
and I said I would show you the rest....
and being the bad, forgetful blogger that I am.....I FORGOT!

and these!

Pretty decent pearls! I've used just about all of them, except for the peacock color, and I have a few of the dark teal and silver left. I do have some of the light teal, and magenta button pearls from the top pic, but have been saving them for something special...I don't know what yet, but it will come to me.

I'm certainly not OUT of pearls. I could use another bead box just for pearls. I have all of my pearls, gemstones, and naturals in one big bead box.

I just need MORE pearls! Specifically white pearls, in various shapes and sizes.

This morning I ordered from a new supplier, and I hope their pearls are as pretty as their pictures.
We will see.

I have 19 pages of pearls in my "favorites" on Etsy!!!


I wish I could buy them all.

I adore pearls! They are so elegant. I have a gorgeous add a pearl necklace that my grandma started for me when I was a baby and it's beautiful. I only wear it for special occasions.

I have one pretty string of pearls and then some old vintage pearls that I love. This is something that it must be hard to capture in a photo, too. I never knew there were so many colors and varieties! But I love them all, too!

You are not a Pearl Snob. You are a Pearl-a-holic...so am I! The shell necklace you made for me has a little peacock-colored pearl and I just love it!

Those are very pretty Della. I did not know there was such a variety of color. I am sure you have and will make something fabulous with these.

Your pearls are beautiful! I like the fact that you like to choose the best. You can tell by looking at your jewelry that you use teh best supplies.
