Pearls are a classic and great gift for Valentine’s Day.
In order to get the most out of your pearls, here’s some basic info to help you pick your perfect pearls.
Pearl Size– Pearls generally run from 3mm-12mm. However the standard sizes that you see most people wear are 6-9mm. Each pearl size offers a different style. If you’re attracted to more bolder pieces of jewelry than any size from 8mm and up, will be more your style. And if you tend to go for more simple jewelry designs, the smaller size pearls may work better for you.
Pearl Quality– Ranging from A-AAA, pearls come in varying qualities. AAA is the highest quality available, AA is a high quality, and A is a standard quality. A pearl’s quality is determined by many different factors such as shape, texture of surface and luster.
Pearl Necklace Strand Length– When picking out your pearl necklace, the length of the strand is a big consideration. Generally, pearl necklaces come in 18inch, 24 inch, 36 inch and 45inches, however pearls can be customized to any length. Depending on what kind of pearl look you’re in the market for, each length offers a unique style. Something to keep in mind is that the longer the strand length, the more options you have for styling. For example, this 85 Inch Pearl Necklace, is a unique length and can be worn in at least three different ways.
Multiple Strand Pieces– Whether it’s a pearl bracelet or pearl necklace you’re after, a multiple strand pearl piece is a great option. The more strands of pearls you have the more decadent and glamorous the look. If you’re looking for a more unique piece of pearl jewelry, adding multiple strands is definitely a great choice.
Clasps– Not only are clasps functional, they are also stylish. There are gorgeous collections of clasps made of different gems and metal types. Adding a clasp can really transform the entire look of your pearl piece. A great tip is to pick a signature clasp and wear it to the side of a pearl necklace.
Pearl Restringing– After awhile, you may want to change the style of your pearl jewelry. Pearl restringing allows you to transform your pearls into a brand new design. If you have a necklace and want to transform it into a bracelet you can! Or you can turn a single strand necklace into a multiple strand one. Another idea is to add a new centerpiece clasp or adding more pearls to lengthen your piece.
