So I've only got single strand pearls ... You've-turned-18-single-strand pearls from my mum and dad. And in classic fashion, they each got me something totally different. Mum a strand of black pearls; dad white. (One year I asked for Ghost chairs... mum got me a clear one and dad a smokey grey one... You'd think two people in the same house could coordinate! Argh!)

Not being young now, having a style that tends to overwhelm them, and their not matching... Any thoughts on how to wear them?
