    Hello! I love the look of DBTY and currently have been talking to BG about a 36" WG 1.5mm with 18 alternating 10 pt and 18 20 pt diamonds. I will never wear it single, only doubled (or more). I don't want this to look dainty. Do you think it would be over kill to do a 54 inch or even 72 to wrap three or four times? I have never seen this. I have money in budget to add more stones if I need to. Any thoughts or feedback appreciated!

    Hi, I remember seeing a photo of one (where ??) that was a whole 100 inches long. It wrapped around like 4 times and looked fabulous. Maybe a movie star at some award function? I recall her wearing a green dress I loved as well.
    I had an old long string string of pearls, I think they called it “opera length” and it came almost to my stomach. I would wear it as two (a choker length and long) or double the same. I could wear it three times around too.
    Think about what “lengths” you like to wear and go from there.

    Not overkill. There are plenty around.

    I’d go for the 54 inches. I tried something on similar with old cuts set in platinum at a jewellery show this past summer. I didn’t want to take it off 27990FB4-91BB-4B0D-BDBB-DB7A03D28632.jpeg
