Hi ladies! I did a search of the forum, but can't seem to find a thread with size recommendations, even though I'm sure I read one a few months ago. I'm a newbie to pearls, so I'm really hoping to rely on your expertise! I'm wondering what size pearls and strand length you ladies would recommend for everyday wear vs. evenings out. I found a cultured pearl necklace on amazing sale, but am not sure about the size. The pearls are 6-6.5mm and the necklace is 24" long. This seems a bit on the long side, so I was thinking that I might get the necklace broken up and get a shorter necklace and a bracelet made out of it. Thoughts? I also found a freshwater pearl necklace also on amazing sale that has pearls that are 6-7mm and is 18" in length. This necklace is a bit shorter than the other, but I'm still not sure about the length... Please share your thoughts on these sizes and how suitable you think they would be for everyday or evenings out for a 26 year-old! TIA!!!
