Bold & Classic

About this design:

A simple design that I enjoy wearing, but I was a bit deceived with the colour of my SW pearls when I got them. I find them a bit on the yellow side (1st picture= actual colour), might have to change them for whiter ones...


Sterling silver chain and clasp, SW 16mm pearls and pendant

    Thanks Lynn :) I have found some white FW pearls 14mm, so I will change them, as soon as I get my order ;) These were supposed to be cream colored but they are glass pearls not SW actually, must be why the colour was deceiving.

    Change them if you must – but I think it looks great just like this. Why change it – just make a new one with the white pearls when they come – and sell this one?

    I agree with Bead-itudes you can keep this one and make another with the white pearl! Beautiful design!

    I love it … to me the pearls look more like peach, which is a color I love. I’d keep it.

    LOVE the design!!!!! I too would keep this one just as is. These pearls give the piece an antique look, so I think it could be worn for dress, business or casual. I would also do one in white pearls, but probably save it for dressy or formal occasions. :)

    Johanne, this necklace is gorgeous and quite exquisite. I had to put it into my favorite file for sure. It is just so elegant and rich looking and think of the possibilities you can do with this one design. Thanks for sharing.

    I really hope you do, Johanne! I love this one just as it is, it’s such a perfect and elegant design. It would be equally lovely with white pearls! :D
