Ok should I get the 48" or the 32" necklace (the traditional pearls with the ccs interspersed). I think the long strand is about $1250 and the short strand is $695...also should I get the silver or gold (i heard this is a very soft gold) toned? Please tell me which you picked for yourself and why... And what do you think about this belt? http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=300102422918&ssPageName=ADME:B:SS:US:1 Please help...I am so utterly confused! I need my gals' opinions!
