Pearls for Mom

My mom is looking for a double strand pearl necklace. Too bad I got her Mother's Day gift months ago. Here are some options:

Lauren by Ralph Lauren Necklace, Glass Pearl and Crystal Accent

Wrap a cluster of finery around your neck with this double-strand glass pearl necklace. With silvertone mixed metal and crystal accents. Strands measures approximately 18 inches and 20 inches long.

Pearl Necklace, Cultured Freshwater Pearl Strand (9-1/2 to 10-1/2 mm)

Reg. $300.00
Was $149.00
Sale $99.00
Little things that make a big impressions. This dual-strand necklace features cultured freshwater pearls (9-1/2 to 10-1/2 mm) and a setting of sterling silver. Approximate length: 19 inches.

I've heard that PearlsOnly is a good place to buy online.

$141 for an 18-inch double strand of freshwater pearls.
The only thing that could possibly top a single strand of AA-graded pearls is two of them in one necklace! These gorgeous white freshwater pearls are grown for two years before being hand selected for their perfectly round shape and strung on double-knotted fine silk thread.

The epitome of grace and style, Jacqueline Kennedy was a fashion icon whose influence is still relevant today. Get her signature look with this double strand simulated pearl necklace. A reproduction of one of her iconic pieces, it marries two strands of white simulated pearls via decorative clasp. The round, silvertone box clasp is adorned with a round, blue faceted crystal and surrounded by round, clear faceted crystals to complete the upscale design. From the Jacqueline Kennedy Collection.

* Simulated pearls measure approximately 10.0mm to 12.0mm
* Silvertone box clasp
* Measures approximately 18"L x 2"W

Etsy also has a few options.

Marianne, Double Strand Swarovski Pearl Rhinestone Flower Spray Bridal Necklace from vendor, Luxe Deluxe (from whom I've ordered before).

This would be my pick (you know, because I'm subtle like that).


This statement bridal necklace features a beautiful rhinestone flower spray embellished with Swarovski rhinestones, offset from double strands of white/ivory Swarovski pearls on one side and a single strand of pearls on the other. Finished with a rhodium plated rhinestone box clasp. The necklace measures approximately 16" along the inside strand. This item will ship with tracking. This is made to order, please allow 3-5 working days for production. Contact me if you'd like a different length or pearl colour.

TBYRD DESIGNS also has a bunch of double strands. Here's one:

White Chocolate Necklace

The winter white 7mm freshwater pearls of this double necklace are really pretty in this design. The shorter length is 18.5" and the longer length is 20". The double strand connector has a topaz Swarovski crystal in it and I have finished it with a sterling silver double hook and eye.
