A scheme for characterizing entanglement using the statistical measure of correlation given by the Pearson correlation coefficient (PCC) was recently suggested that has remained unexplored beyond the qubit case. Towards the application of this scheme for the high-dimensional states, a key step has been taken in a very recent work by experimentally determining PCC and analytically relating it to Negativity for quantifying entanglement of the empirically produced bipartite pure state of spatially correlated photonic qutrits. Motivated by this work, we present here a comprehensive study of the efficacy of such an entanglement characterizing scheme for a range of bipartite qutrit states by considering suitable combinations of PCCs based on a limited number of measurements. For this purpose, we investigate the issue of necessary and sufficient certification together with quantification of entanglement for the two-qutrit states comprising maximally entangled state mixed with white noise and colored noise in two different forms, respectively. Further, by considering these classes of states for d=4 and 5, extension of this PCC-based approach for higher dimensions (d) is discussed.
