9 x 9.5mm - Generally for older women, 45 years and up or extremely successful 30s.
The Ferrari of pearls, and the CEO's strand. Simply regal -- and extremely rare. For a refined, discriminating woman who is serious about her pearls and won't settle for anything but the best. Also a solid choice for an older woman on her way into upper management who now needs to notch it up over her well-worn 7.5 x 8mm strand. The second-rarest size, it makes for a strand that is sure to be very hip and stylish in any social bracket -- her friends won't stop talking about it (you'll socre big points for this!). It is usually purchased as a versatile double-strand choker (18 inches) that can be converted into a single-strand opera (36 inches).
