Anyone have strong opinions on the best source for a pearl necklace for a girl who will eventually be a young lady? Â Simplicity and highest quality are the needs here--- no diamonds, flashy clasps, doo-dads. Â Just great pearls and classic proportions. Â Cost not ridiculously important, within reason. For starters, does anyone have any insight on Tiffany's vs. Mikimoto? Â And are there objective ratings or other standard criteria for pearls such as there are with diamonds?
