Beautiful Pearl NecklacesA pearl is a spherical and lustrous object which comes from inside the shell of an oyster or clam, and is highly valued especially for use in jewelry. Similar to a mollusk’s shell, a pearl is made up of calcium carbonate in very microscopic crystalline form and is deposited in concentric layers. Only true pearls are considered to be valuable, which can either be natural or cultured pearl. Cultured pearls are the most common variant of pearls sold in the market, while pearls that form naturally in the wild are very rare and is usually very expensive.

Cultured pearls are made by introducing an irritant or a “mother of pearl” bead inside an oyster or mollusk. The mollusk reacts to the irritation by secreting a crystalline substance known as nacre, and this accumulates around the irritant in concentric layers, which ultimately forms a pearl. Natural pearls, on the other hand are made through natural process or without the intervention of man. In the past, hundreds of oysters were collected and opened (which is consequently killed) just to find wild pearls. This has been the trend in those times which is why natural pearls are now very hard to find.

Pearls can be cultured from both freshwater and saltwater. Freshwater pearls usually come from lakes and ponds, and the mollusks that produce them are capable of producing around 50 pearls at any given time. Saltwater pearls on the other hand are cultured in saltwater, specifically inside oysters, and the yield is only one pearl per oyster. For this reason, saltwater pearls are much more valuable as compared to their freshwater counterparts. Akoya pearls are one of the very well-known saltwater pearls which are cultured from Japan, and also has very high luster.

Pearls can also come in a wide range of colors, and is a significant factor in pearl grading. The color of a pearl is made up of its bodycolor and overtone. The bodycolor is known as the pearl’s main color, and is dictated by factors such as the oyster specie, water conditions and even the kind of nucleus deposited inside the oyster. The overtone is known as the pearl’s secondary color, which is usually translucent, and adds depth and glow to the bodycolor. For example, a white pearl can have a pink or green overtone, while there are also some that doesn’t have any overtone.

When we think about pearl jewelry, the first thing that usually comes to mind is the pearl necklace. Generally, Akoya pearls are made into necklaces, although other variants such as South Sea, Black Tahitian and freshwater pearls may also be used. Akoya pearls are a perfect choice if you are looking for a good quality and classic-style pearl bracelet. Pearl earrings are also a very common part of a woman’s jewelry collection and is usually bought as a set with matching pearl necklaces. Pearl jewelry are not only good as fashion items, they are also an excellent choice for people looking for good investment options.

In shopping for pearl necklace & earrings, it is important to take a closer look at the pearl itself. Pearl prices are usually dictated by several factors such as pearl’s luster, nacre, color, surface, size and shape. For example, luster is considered to be the most significant quality of a pearl, and is categorized from poor to excellent. The nacre quality or thickness is directly related to a pearl’s luster and is categorized as chalky appearance, nucleus visible and acceptable. Remember that each pearl is unique and beautiful in its own way; each will have its own characteristics and attributes, which is why it is strongly advised that you do some further research when buying or investing in pearl jewelry.
