I love this mikimoto design for a lariat necklace:
I am getting a similarly sized Tahital strand and I might want to do something similar, but without the lariat--since I don't think I have the length. The pearls are 11mm, what size do you think these diamond rondelles are??? For stringing purposes, it the strand is around 17in strong with ball clasp now. How much length do you think those rondelles add to the necklace overall?
