    I've had sellers regret for things I've sold on eBay -- and I simply remind myself of the reasons why I sold it. I'd rather have sellers regret than buyers remorse. :)

    There are some who buy an 18" strand and have a couple of pearls removed for drop earrings. Just a thought. But yes, it's an excellent suggestion to buy earrings at the same time.
