    Default Smaller size high quality freshies?

    Hello all,

    I am planning on purchasing a starter pearl necklace for my 8 year old niece to wear on her first communion. I think 6.5-7 might be too big. Does anyone have any suggestions as to where to look? I would prefer high quality white ones (AAA, freshadama or metallics). Pearl paradise said they did not have any.....


    Thanks!

    somewhere between 5-6mm would probably be a good choice for a 8 year old but going a little large (6-7mm) does allow her to grow into the strand and ultimately allow her to wear it much longer.

    Hi, We settled on 7mm as okay after trying them on Sam's one and a half year old daughter, and they didn't look too big or too small on her...just right.
