Hi everyone, not very familiar with this website, let alone the world of pearls. With that said, I would greatly appreciate the help of you pearl aficionados.
So from what I know as of now is that my girlfriend would like these pearls to compliment a business look. I did some research online that said the pearls should not pass the bust line, so I am thinking size 16", with a 7-8mm pearl.
Is this a good size to purchase with?
My second issue is that I am only 21 (so is my girlfriend - both live in America) and I am a bit limited on the funds. I am thinking to spend under $100 for good entry level pearl set.
I saw another thread her where a man was asking for help finding a pearl set for his wife. Someone directed him to Pearl Paradise, the lowest price I saw on there was $101 for just the necklace.
I looked around on Amazon and found these items:
^^ ideally I would like something more like this. The only issue is the 18" I feel might fall too low.
^^ again, will this be too low? Is it quality?
^^ I also found this nice, but are the pearls too narrow for the business look?
^^ likewise is this too small (5-6mm)
^^ Any thoughts on this one?
Really, I just want to find something not extravagant, but nice enough that she will be happy to wear it. Ideally something of quality, with a nice appeal and gleam.
Thank you so much for your help,suggestions, and ideas.
