HISTORY AND BELIEFS RELATING TO PEARLS
Jewelry containing pearls dates back to ancient Greece, but it is highly likely that they may have been used even earlier. Many cultures have revered them as valuable gemstones for centuries, and they were often reserved for royalty. Pearls symbolize love, purity, honesty, faith, and integrity. The perfect way to commemorate your long and loving relationship. According to legend, pearls have calming and balancing properties, in addition to fostering loyalty and integrity. It is also believed that pearls help enhance love and romance within marriages.
TYPES OF PEARLS THAT YOU SHOULD KNOW ABOUT
There are two main kinds of pearls - 'Natural' and 'Cultured'. Naturally, a pearl that forms randomly, without any human intervention is called a Natural Pearl. They are very rare and therefore very expensive. On the other side, a cultured pearl is formed through human intervention. Even so, cultured pearls are unique as the oyster farmer has no control over how many oysters or mussels will be harvested. Untrained eyes cannot tell the difference between natural and cultured pearls. There is also a distinction between a freshwater pearl and a saltwater pearl. Pearls that grow in protected ocean inlets are saltwater pearls. Let's explore Freshwater Pearls in detail.
Freshwater Pearls: Pearls grown within freshwater mussels are different from those grown in ocean mollusks, as their name implies. A pearl of this kind is the most affordable and common kind on the market, although the more fine specimens are still a bit expensive. Freshwater pearls generally come from China and are available in a wide range of colors. The pastel colors are usually peach, lavender, pink, or white. In order to enhance or alter their coloring, special dyes are sometimes applied. A freshwater pearl can have a diameter ranging from two to twelve millimeters, with some varieties reaching up to fifteen millimeters.
Freshwater pearls are really unique, as each has its own shape and natural variation! Various types of freshwater pearls are available, such as baroque and Keshi. There are many different qualities to each, and some, like the Keshi, reflect the rainbow. Our Sky Eleganz Jewelry collection offers freshwater pearls of the highest quality.
SHORT INTRODUCTIONS OF OTHER PEARL TYPES
Akoya Pearls: Typically, when most people think of pearls, they think of the Akoya pearl, whose characteristic white sheen is unique to this variety. As for Akoya pearls, they are produced by cultivating Pinctada Fucata Martensii, a saltwater oyster, which lives on the colder coastlines of Japan, Vietnam, and southern China. A long-standing tradition of Akoya pearl cultivation has made Japan the world's leader in the production of consistently high-quality specimens. Typically, Akoya pearls are white, but some may also have an undertone of gold or silver.
Tahitian Pearls: Coastal waters of French Polynesia are the source of Tahitian pearls, which are found in black-lipped oysters. Their glossy, metallic, grey coloring makes them the only naturally occurring black pearls. Because dark pearls are less common than lighter ones, they command a higher price. There are only two types of pearls on the market that do not receive any color treatment after harvesting - Tahitian and South Sea pearls. What makes them so special is their exceptional color and luster. The Pearls are only produced once or twice in one oyster's lifetime.
South Sea Pearls: South Sea Pearls tend to be the largest and most expensive pearl varieties. One of the reasons for their mystique is that they are grown in the infamous Coral Triangle - a section of treacherous waters situated between Australia, Indonesia, and the Philippines. There are actually pirates living in this part of the world, as well as sharks. Whether they're pastel pink, silver, or gold, those types of pearls are undeniably the most prized and valuable on the market.
Baroque Pearls: Generally, Baroque Pearls are the types that have a shape that isn't perfectly round. These irregular shapes can range from minor imperfections to a distinct oval, curved, pinched, or lumpy shape. The Pearls are created by the decomposition of organic material during pearl production. As the gas expands between layers of nacre, strange shapes are created.
