    Diamonds vs. pearls.... Frankly, it's hard to have comparable pieces compete within a reasonable budget: even natural pearls provide a more prominent piece of jewelry then diamonds tit for tat. Just think about it. And pearls still seem the proper thing to wear during the day, as opposed to anything large and glittery. Perhaps that standard is eroding, but not really.

    Otherwise, the two work together marvelously, methinks.

    I remember reading a quote on the forum a while back that went along the lines of 'when a woman wears diamonds, people notice the diamonds; but when a woman wears pearls, people notice the woman'.

Can pearls really do all that for us, well, I don't know!!?? But it is fun to think they can!!

    Jody - the necklace looks terrific, as does your neck! It definitely does not look too short on you. It's a very versatile length, and it shows up well with shirt collars and crew necks. I'm 47 and my favorite length is 16". Even when I wear a longer length, I usually have on a 16" with it.
    Wear it!

    Let's face it, folks, nobody's neck gets better with age, unless it is with surgical help. Soooooo, I'd rather spend my $$,$$$ on pearls and give 'em sumthin' amazing to look at.

    BTW, I am 67, so can speak from experience! Jody, the necklace is lovely on you, wear it and enjoy it, you can add a few pearls later if you wish to make it longer.

    Turkeys have highly developed wattles. Mine are that saggy skin under the chin so many older folks get. Not exactly a double chin but similar. May none of you ever have aging skin under the chin as you get older.

    Jody, I think the necklace looks great as it is. Personally I like to wear my pearls closer to the neck. One option is to consider ordering the matching bracelet, and when you fancy a longer 'look' just attach the two together. I do that with some of my strands, and seeing the clasps is not normally a problem. Obviously this will lengthen the necklace quite a lot, but I find the extra length very flattering. I am also in my 40s.

    Hi Jody,

    I am late to this. The necklace looks beautiful on you as it is. If you would like one more opinion I think it may be nicer to have an inch or so more. That way it rests just slightly more on the collar bone. Just my two cents. Either way you have a great necklace!

    Cheers,
    Pernula

    Ha! Those turkey appendages are called 'pearls' or 'beads' locally On that bird it isn't very obvious why, but other varieties have them very beady. Never thought of the feature as ugly much like a peacock's tail. It's just hilarious - turning the meaning of the image around!

    Darn! Used to wear coral strung like that and tell everyone what the inspiration for the design was

    Here is an image of a turkey with his wattle (the red part)-- it attracts the females, if you can believe it!

    Hi Knotty,

    I too am wondering what wattle means but you are right, perhaps it is bliss not to know

    I think it looks lovely on you (16 inches wouldn't go around MY neck!), and your neck is LOVELY!
    One thing about shorter lengths is I think they throw a sort of pearlescence up onto your face, which has to be good. Mostly I wear longer lengths as I live in the tropics and I can wear them over my clothes so they don't get all sweaty (ewwwww). Dry season I will go back to shorter ones for a while.

    I think it looks very nice on you. If you like it, wear it and be merry! Like the other posters, I think buying a second, longer strand is a great idea. Just more options.
