What Size of Pearl should I Buy?
Oddly enough we get more questions regarding people’s concerns that the pearls they are looking at may be too large. Well we must say that in most cases the larger the better! Large sized pearls of say 9-10mm can be absolutely stunning on a petite woman. However if it still is a concern then sizes of 7 to 8mm are the most common size sold and are extremely versatile for use everyday or for that special evening out.
Cultured Pearls that are less than 6mm in diameter are quite small and normally sized for very young girls or exceptionally petite women. 6mm to 7mm are larger and much more popular; particularly in Akoya pearls and Freshwater pearls especially with incredible AAA Luster. For those bold luxurious occasions sizes above 8mm are the most common. Cultured Pearls are worn for all occasions and worn anywhere. Please note that even a difference of 1mm in diameter is quite noticeable to the naked eye when worn around the neck. Pearl jewelry is stunning no matter where or when they are worn or with any outfit. That’s why pearls are a must for any jewelry box no matter what the size.
