Pearl Size Information

The pictures below show various size Akoya and black Tahitian pearls compared to a U.S. dime, a number 2 pencil and a ruler. Because cultured pearls are produced by an oyster, few pearls in a strand are exactly the same size. That's why pearl sizes for a necklace or bracelet are expressed as a range. When you see pearl size expressed as "6 to 6.5mm", for example, that means that no pearl in the strand is less than 6mm or greater than 6.5mm. A range variation of 0.5mm is considered an excellent size match.

Akoya Pearl Sizes

The most popular size for akoya cultured pearl bracelets and necklaces is 6.5 to 7mm. Pearl Oasis has this size and a wide range of other size white akoya cultured pearl necklaces and white akoya cultured pearl bracelets. We also have a large selection of Hanadama quality akoya cultured pearl necklaces. Hanadama pearls are the top 2% in quality of all Japanese pearls and the quality is certified by the Japan Pearl Science Laboratory. Akoya pearls do not come any larger than 9mm. If you want larger white pearls, please consider our South sea pearl necklaces or South sea pearl bracelets. Click here to download a size comparison of akoya pearls that will print at actual size.
