    BN, those screamers make me gasp every time I see them! And they're perfectly styled with your beautiful little h earrings. As for etiquette, I think you've proven there is no right or wrong way to wear pearl jewelery. You are equally beautiful wearing pearls with organic shapes as well as perfectly round tradititonal pearls styled with casual wear or more formal attire. It's your indiviudal style and nothing else matters.

    I also agree with BW, as much as I'd love to own a triple, if the spacing between the strands is off or if pearls don't nest perfectly, my OCD would kick in and I'd never want to wear that strand. With a double I'd never have that concern.

    JP, love the concept of re-purposing older pieces. I've been doing that too. It's so much fun to give them new life!

    Looking forward to seeing all the sister pearls next month!

    Iris Apfel definitely breaks any and all rules and makes it work for her. And that should be the definition of elegance, beauty, style or whatever. Make it work for you.

    I was going to ask Sarah, too, lol! But I think I would like to do the waterfall style with pearls that aren't white. I have too many white pearls in my collection and I find that I am not wearing them as much as my other pearls these days. Can't wait to see that picture of all of you wearing your sister pearls!

    BWeaves strand she calls "everything and a bagel" is a perfect example of Sarah's use of multiple types of pearls in a waterfall type design. Sarah probably could do it in Tahitians if you want she's that creative.

    I always enjoy seeing your Pearl collection. The dangles from little h are spectacular, so unusual, so designer! As for your double strand of metallics, what's not to love, a classic forever!

    I actually thought my Everything Bagel was a Waterfall necklace when I first grabbed it off Sarah's neck and yelled, "Dibs!" at the last Ruckus. I really want an all white version, like the Waterfall necklace, but I would grab a Tahitian version, too. I really love the mix of large and small roundish pearls in a long rope. Sarah has a couple of multicolored Waterfall-ish ropes on the Kojima website right now. I hesitate to mention them because I was hoping I could see them in person at Ruckus.

    I guess it depends on the individual: first, wear what you enjoy most and second, try to be mindful of what actually suits you. On myself, I prefer doubles. I really like a triple with smaller sized pearls. And I too can’t stand when the strands of a triple don’t nest!
