How big are 10 mm freshwater pearls?

Published by stacie on Aug 25th 2019

10 - 11 mm pearls are the size of a Tylenol tablet and a common size for a freshwater pearl necklace as a single or multi strand necklace, often combined with gems creating a statement necklace.  Pearl necklaces at this size priced ~ $2K and under are typically freshwater pearls. The larger the freshwater pearl the more valuable it is, since freshwater pearls have a larger amount of nacre per pearl.
