    Default Source For Smaller Pearls?

    Hi everyone. I have been looking for a strand of pearls that are on the smaller side, 5 mm or less, that are round. or roundish. Is there a particular site that I should visit to find such a strand or is this an item that would require a special request made to a specific vendor?

    What type of pearls are you looking for.... ? Small round white Freshwater are easy to get in that size. Also 5mm Akoya . ( be careful where you buy the Akoya as the nacre can be terribly thin ... PP has good Akoya) But for that size you should send them a request as I'm sure they can get them in for you if they don't have them in stock.

    I am looking for round freshwater pearls and 5 mm is the largest I would want to go. Ideally, I would be able to find something in the 3 mm range.
