These freshwater pearls are 7.5-8mm wide. We have hand picked these beauties for the finest selection possible. They are a natural nugget shape with a hole to hole length of 10mm +/-. All drilled with a 2.5mm hole that will easily fit a 2mm cord... Perhaps a nice leather cord or a bunch of different textured ribbons. The design possibilities are endless with these beauties. Each strand is 8 inches with approximately 19 pearls per strand. You receive one strand per lot. The hole diameter of these large holed freshwater pearls are very consistent which is important when planning your jewelry designs.
