A Glimpse: The Beauty of Pearls

The Perfect Match For Silk

If a woman can own only one piece of jewelry, it must be pearls

PEARL BASICS SELECT A PEARL PEARL CARE

The Birth of a Pearl

Creating pearls is a miraculous process that requires much time and dedication.

The oyster bed is a natural habitat that must be painstakingly nurtured before a pearl can even be conceived. The cultivation process begins with a core. A natural pearl starts as a foreign object, such as a piece of fishbone or sand, inside the shell.

To protect itself from this irritant, the oyster secretes thousands of layers of calcium carbonate crystals, known as nacre or mother of pearl, forming a pearl gradually.

The History of Pearl

The studies of geology and archaeology have proved that there were pearls on the earth 200 million years ago. Pearls are the only treasures that naturally occur without processing and have magical vitality.

Since it is precious, for a long time, pearls could be used only by royalty, no matter in Europe or China.

China has begun harvesting and using pearls more than 2,000 years ago.

Tenderness in Natural Brilliance

There was a famous saying goes, "If a woman can own only one piece of jewelry, it must be pearls".

There is no dazzling brightness of diamonds, no dazzling beauty of colored gemstones, the pigmentation of pearls is moist and delicate with beautiful natural shapes.

Pearls with magnificent colors and elegance nature symbolize health, purity, wealth and happiness, and have been much loved by people since ancient times.

In the international gemstone world, pearls are also listed as lucky stones for birthdays in June, and commemorative stones for the 13th and 30th wedding anniversaries. Women with taste and culture know how to appreciate the beauty of pearls.

Medicinal & Skin Care Value

Pearl is the best skincare and beauty product. To beautify the skin, noblewomen in ancient Egypt often used pearl powder to mix with milk to rub their bodies before going to bed.

Pearl cream, pearl powder, and pearl liquid, etc. can be absorbed by human epidermal cells, enhance cell vitality, and promote metabolism. And because they contain higher fatty alcohols, they have a skin-care effect.

Therefore, pearl skincare products have the unique effect of slowing the signs of aging and lightening the skin. Proper use can keep the skin soft, fair and clear, moisturize and smooth, and keep youthful and beautiful.

In ancient times, pearls were the symbol of a person's social status, and those who wore pearl jewelry were always dignitaries. But why does pearl price become very affordable for the people? With the rise of artificial farming, the artificially produced oyster pearl output has also increased year after year, and the price of pearls has stopped rising.

Today, the price of ordinary pearls is relatively close to the people, but the pearls with good quality and large sizes are still expensive.

Although the price of pearls is far lower than before, it is not that cheap. Pearls actually have a price system based on their quality. But if you want to ask how much a pearl is, it is actually equivalent to asking how much is a carat of diamonds. It is meaningless.

The following sections will give you some helpful guidelines as you choose your ideal piece from the collection of luxury pearl jewelry in the world.

While size does not affect the quality of cultured pearls, it does affect the price. Large pearls are more difficult to cultivate and their rarity makes them more valuable. Pearls are measured in diameter increments of millimeters (mm). Generally, pearls below 6mm are not classified as treasure-grade pearls, 7-9mm is loved by consumers, 10mm is rare, and only 11mm and above are South Sea pearls and black pearls. The higher the quality, the rarer the quantity, the price will become doubled expensive.

The classic Akoya cultured pearl generally ranges from 3mm to 10mm. South Sea cultured pearls begin at 8mm and can grow as large as 18mm.

Of all pearl shapes, the round has traditionally been considered the most valuable due to the "perfection" of the spherical shape. However, are pearls come in a wide variety of shapes, naturally created by the oyster or mussel, and can take on whimsically different attitudes and that is equally beautiful. (Pearl Shapes) However, the rule is- the rounder, the better. There are three basic shapes: Round (perfect sphere)

Semi-Baroque (Drop, Oval, Buttons, Circled) and Baroque (Asymmetrical).

Pearls vary widely in color based on the type of oyster that produces them. The rarer the shade, the more valuable the pearl. Colors range from cream, pink and grey to black, green and blue. While color choice is a matter of personal preference, always look for rich color, evenly distributed throughout the pearl.

Historically, white pearls have been the most favored color of pearls due to their classic appeal, wehter formal or casual, white pearls simply go well with everything. Many unusual colors, such as black and gold, are very expensive due to their rarity.

Complexion refers to the quality of the surface of the pearl; the number and size of the makings and their visibility.

Subtle blemishes and tiny marks are part of a pearl’s natural texture and proof of its genuine origin. These blemishes are the result of sea particles that drift into the oyster and brush against the pearl as it forms. Fewer surface imperfections denote a higher quality, more valuable pearl. Being a natural gem, a pearl with a flawless surface is exceptionally rare.

Lustre is the most important characteristic of pearl quality. Lustre describes the luminous quality of the pearl’s surface; the way the light reflects and refracts from the layers of nacre to produce a ‘glow’ appearing to be coming from within the pearl. More the pearl shines more the pearl has a high mother of pearl thickness. The better the nacre quality of the pearl, the more superior its luster.

Pearls are resilient and meant to be worn, but they are also delicate and require proper care.

Daily Care

Pearls are organic gemstones that are vulnerable to acid, alkaline and extremes of humidity.

To preserve your pearls' radiance, avoid letting them come into contact with cosmetics, hair spray, or perfume.

The pearl's luster can also be harmed by perspiration. To prevent this, remove before bathing, swimming or engaging in heavy exercise.

And, before returning your pearls to the jewelry box, wipe them gently with a soft cloth. Never clean pearls with steam or ultrasonic jewelry cleaner. Both of these methods are likely to damage the outer layer of the pearl.

Personal Storage

Pearls may be scratched by contact with sharp objects or other gemstones.

To prevent tangles and scratches, fasten clasps and pins, then lay each item out separately in a compartmentalized jewelry box. When carrying jewelry, use a protective jewelry pouch.
