  • New user advice for a gift

    Hi all,
    It's Marco from UK. I found this amazing forum while I was surfing on Google to find the perfect gift for my girlfriend. She is turning 30 and she already has a pair of stud pearl earrings (white). I don't know the size nor the type of the pearl. She wears them everyday and I can't measure them.
    I would like to surprise her with a new pair of pearl stud earrings. I found here a few UK vendors. I am focusing on those 2 options:

    Not sure if 7.5/8 mm will be too small. I attached a picture of the current earrings, can you guess what size are they? She has blue eyes but I was thinking to go with the white/rose color.
    What would you suggest?
    Thanks for any advices!

    Hello Marco/Balloobb, and welcome to our forum!

    I have a preference for blue/green overtones when the pearl wearer has blue/green eyes and white skin, but when the pearls are smaller than 9 mm you can barely notice this anyway (at least with my flailing eyesight).
    The earrings in the photo seem to be about 7-8 mm to me...but we don't really have a way to gauge this from the photo. To me the pearl looks pretty against her skin, but too small.
    Remember: it all boils down to PERSONAL preference!
    Happy weekend

      I'd go for the larger size unless she spends a lot of time on the phone. Larger studs can feel awkward when holding a phone against one's ear.

        Thanks cortezpearls for your suggestion, I will take a look to green/blue colour as well.
        Pearldreams she spends hours and hours with the airpods, but I don't think that this is gonna be a problem.
        Thank you both !
