    Default Show us your double strands!

    I'd love to see pictures of your pieces layered, especially double strands!

    It would be helpful if you could include the size of the pearls and lengths you're wearing them

    so excited to see everyone's pics!

    Giving this a bump, as it may not be showing up. I do layering, but don't have any true double strands that I can think of. Guess I best do something about that, lol! I feel it's a great look and we do have lots of super examples here!

    I don't have a double strand but I do have a FW triple strand & I have some blue & white Akoya strands that I had made to layer with my PP blue akoya strands. I also layer my multi color Tahitians that nestle to look like a double strand. I've posted pics of them in the Show Me Your Pearls in Action thread. I can repost them here if you like.

    I only have 1 double strand tincup style. It's pinkish southsea with gold chain. I just wear it just like that!
    Other necklaces just wear a strand layered with a gold chain n a single pearl pendant like in the 2 photos for example. 1 photo feature a super long tincup strand of white, golden ss and tahitian wore with a necklace n single baroque ss pendant. Another is a single strand of multicolored tahitian wore with a necklace n flower tahitian pendant.

    No, Midge said, I take it back. I wouldnt get a mink coat the first thing. Know what Id do? Id get a string of pearls. Real pearls. Yes, Annabel said, slowly. I think thats a kind of a good idea. And it would make sense, too. Because you can wear pearls with anything.

    Beautiful, Baby Nurse! Don't know which ones I love more as they are all stunning. But the coral combo is really nice, also love the silver pre-loved keshi with the BBakoyas, as well as your bottom 2 looks!

    Gorgeous everyone. I have one traditional white Freshadama double strand, but it's too hot to wears pearls today. 97F before the heat factor is factored in.
