How to Determine Jewelry Size?

How Large Is the Pendant shown below?

Lets look at a Heart Shape Pendant



The pendant in this picture is enhanced to show the detail. If you read the pendant information it states that the height is 9mm. Using the Diamondwave Coin table and the mm to inches conversion chart below you can quickly understand how large this really is.


Most of us can quickly find a penny, nickel and quarter in our purse or pocket, knowing the sizes of these us coins can quickly help us determine the size of jewelry.

Lets take a look at our 9 mm Pearl Pendant and compare it to the coin chart below.

Notice, the Dollar Coin is 26.5 mm high. That would mean that our pendant is smaller than a dime. When you shop for earrings you will notice that many of them are smaller than a us dime. The diamonds and 18k gold are both very expensive. If you want earrings that are as large as a US Nickel you will have to look for earrings that are around 21mm in height.

If you would prefer converting everything to inches you will really enjoy our MM to Inches conversion table. This table quickly converts all heights up to 40mm.
