Bridal Earrings FAQs

Q: “Which pearls are best quality for my wedding day?” 

A: We recommend buying the highest quality pearl bridal earrings possible, even if that means stepping down in size to get that higher pearl grade rating. You'll never regret purchasing very high quality, incredibly lustrous pearls over larger, but duller specimens.

We recommend AAA Quality and Certified Hanadama Akoya pearls, and AAA or AAAA/Gem White South Sea pearls for your wedding pearls. If you have questions about pearl quality we suggest reading these two Grading Guides listed below at our shop, which we think any customer will find super helpful!


The Expert's Guide to Pearl Grading

The Insider's Guide to Akoya Pearl Grading

Q: “Is it ok to wear costume jewelry pearls at my wedding?” 

A: Definitely. It's your wedding, do what makes you happy. Faux pearls (also called synthetics) offer a incredibly large array of designs to choose from, and very low price points. We've included some faux pearl and crystal drop earrings that we spotted and fell in love with in this list for exactly this reason.

Pearl bridal earrings accented with Swarovski crystals can be incredibly pretty, and the quality is high - they'll look just like the real thing to almost everybody at your wedding. For brides working with a budget, then a pair of faux pearl earrings accented with crystals allows you to wear some glamorous, glittering jewelry at a price that's not going to break the bank account.

Q: “What size pearls is the best to buy for my bridal earrings?” 

A: Your pearl wedding earrings can be any size that fits your unique taste and style. Our most popular sizes for pearl studs ranges from 7.0-7.5mm to 8.5-9.0mm ... this is a dainty, yet elegant size that is sure to get noticed.

For baroque pearls and longer pearl drop earrings, bigger is usually better as the pearls are hanging lower off the earlobe and can get lost unless you're hair is in an up-do. We recommend pearl sizes starting at 9.0-10.0mm up through 12.0-13.0mm or so. Don't be afraid of larger pearl earrings at your wedding; if price is no object, then larger pearl earrings like White South Sea pearls are born to make a statement.
