Customer Question: I Want To Get My Wife A Pair Of Pearl Earrings, But I’m Not Sure Which Size To Choose. Can You Help?

Posted by Ashley on 10/29/2014

Certainly! The classic pearl stud earring is really a staple of any woman’s jewelry box – to be honest, I have a few pairs in different sizes to wear at certain occasions myself!

If you’re looking for an everyday pearl earring, I would highly recommend our 7.0-7.5mm Akoya pearl stud earrings which are versatile, simple and elegant. This size can go with a pair of jeans and a nice t-shirt, or a business suit (and a nice evening out, too!). This is my favorite size personally.

If she likes something with a bit more glamour, try the 9.0-9.5mm pearl studs. These pearls will never fail to get noticed, and will look absolutely stunning on! For a visual reference, here’s my favorite picture of Angelina Jolie wearing this size – aren’t they perfect? She is a HUGE lover of pearls, and wears a variety of sizes as well for different occasions, but this is easily my favorite size for her.


f your wife has very small ears, or is petite, then I’d recommend sticking with the smaller sizes of 7.0-7.5mm and even 6.5-7.0mm which will look more proportionate for her size. 

Be careful of going too small though as you wouldn’t want to underwhelm her physique and personal style. Below is an Akoya Pearl Sizing Chart which shows how small these pearls actually are as compared to a US dime. As you can see the 6.0-6.5mm size is pretty tiny; about 1/5 or 1/6 the size!
