However, please note pearls need to be sufficiently large. Please also allow for an additional 2-3 weeks (although padded with extra time) to custom drill the pearls according to your requirements.

Half drilled pearls are also usually used for making pendants, earrings, rings, or just for keepsake by putting the pearls in a pearl cage. We have all types of half drilled pearls from drop pearls to button pearls, to coin pearls, to round pearls, to flat coin pearl, to rectangular biwa pearl, to square Keshi pearl and more!

You can buy undrilled or half-drilled loose pearls here, from tiny pearls 1mm all the way to huge 35mm pearls, without any minimum, even just for 1 pearl.
