Pearl size for different pearl types

Pearl size for different pearl types

Pearl size will almost always significantly affect its price, but this will also depend on the pearl type: Freshwater pearls, Tahitian pearls, South Sea pearls and Akoya pearls. Generally, South Sea and Tahitian pearls are larger than freshwater or Akoya pearls. For each pearl type, above a specified threshold size, the pearl price will rise exponentially. It is, therefore, a good idea to bear in mind which size is more common for each pearl type and at which size different types of pearls start to become more expensive.
