Default what size rhine stones??

What size stones do you usually use when making your silk flower clips? I have some small ones at home but most of my flowers are medium/bigger in size and I have no idea what size stone to go with. I was looking at some 9mm ones today but didnt want to buy them without knowing for sure what was the best size to use. So what is the most common size you girls use? Would I be better off spending the money on a kit with multiple sizes? Im worried that the tiny ones I will never use for anything so Id much rather buy just what I need.

for 4" flowers I like 20-20mm sometimes up to 25mm depending on the flower or rhinestone, for 2" I generally use 12mm or 14mm (but I like these on the smaller size personally)

I agree, for most larger flowers (like 4" and up), you'd probably need a 20-25mm center. If you have the flowers already, put a coin in the center to get a rough idea of size. I don't have the diamters of the coins off the top of my head, but it would be super-easy to google. They correlate close enough to rhinestone size to get you in the ballpark, and to kind of get a visual It really depends on the particular flower.
