We’ve all heard about what a statement pearl necklace makes. It is the large, signature pearl necklace found in a woman’s jewelry collection that she reaches for time and time again.
What about the ladies who are looking for an understated, yet still equally elegant pearl look? Those who do not want to wear a huge necklace around their neck? A small pearl necklace is a great alternative to a no pearls necklace.
The small pearls are pearls which measure 5mm in size or less. The pearls of this size are suitably wearable. They are large enough to be noticed, but perfect for those who feel that a small pearl necklace is more demure and can be worn on a daily basis.
Just because a small size pearl necklace is constructed of tinier pearls does not mean that it does not possess the same ‘Wow!’ factor of a larger necklace. It as an easy piece for a mom-on-the-go, a career woman, or a teenaged girl to wear, without feeling like they are off to a wedding or the prom. The pearls can fit very nicely into every day wear. They are not always worn to ‘dress up’ an outfit but worn because they make many women just feel good.
What should you look for in a small freshwater pearl necklace?
Just because the small pearl beads are miniature does not mean that the quality is any less important. Their blemishes are unsightly and do not make for a beautiful, long lasting necklace.
Nacre thickness and quality are as important with a small one as with any other. If the nacre is weak and thin, it will easily chip or crack. If the quality of the nacre is poor, your pearls will not be lustrous. There are a few things worse than dull, lifeless pearls.
A reliable clasp is what ties the necklace together, and adds to the visual beauty of the piece. You must make sure that it is durable and will securely hold your necklace around your neck. You should not invest in an expensive one, only to have a cheap spring ring clasp come undone or fall apart.
A small pearl necklace will bring you as much pleasure and enjoyment as a larger sized will. It is just the right touch of pearls, not overstated or dramatic. It is great for a woman, teenager, or young girl for the reason that it is extremely flexible. It also makes the perfect gift when you do not know how big is just too big for her. Here you should not forget the importance of having a sturdy necklace case to keep your piece of jewelry safe and secure.
