1. Pearl Luster

(sometimes spelled “lustre”) is the queen of value. As mentioned before, this is the shine or the reflection that your eye observes when light hits the surface of the pearl. Look for sharpness of reflections; the light source should appear as tight and clear as possible.

2. Pearl Size

All things else being equal, the larger the pearl, the better and the more expensive. It takes a long time for an oyster to produce larger pearls, and there are fewer of them. Big pearls with high luster are rarer still and command higher prices. See the sections below for the size ranges to expect for each species of pearl.

3. Pearl Surface Quality

Just like most diamonds have natural “inclusions”, most pearls have natural surface characteristics, which may appear on the pearl’s surface as “dots” or “dashes”. Ideally, the fewer of these that you see, the better. Surface marks like these are very, very common, and are the result of a natural process over which pearl farmer has little or no control. Therefore, perfectly clean pearls are very rare and expensive. Just keep in mind that, like most things in life, marks tend to obvious only when you’re looking for them, but often are not even noticeable when the pearls are worn.Pearls Necklace Price

4. Pearl Shape

There are several ideal shapes: round, tear-drop, and baroque (free-form). In general, the closer a pearl is to one of these ideal shapes, the better and more valuable it is. For example, if the look of the pearl seems to be round, it should be as round as possible. Rounds used to be considered the most valuable, but these days a nice dropshape or baroque-shape can cost as much or more as a round, depending on how it will be used.

5. Pearl Color

The primary color you observe in the pearl is called “body color”. In addition, some pearl species also exhibit additional minor colors as overtones or orient. More on this later. While there is no wrong color, some colors are considered more desirable than others, depending on the species of pearl.

6. Pearl Nacre Thickness

When the nucleus is inserted into an oyster to create a pearl, the oyster responds by coating the nucleus with layer upon layer of a substance called conchiolin, or nacre. The thicker the nacre, the bigger and more durable the pearl will be. Pearls with thin nacre may show cracks or chipping around the drill holes, and should always be avoided.

7. Pearl Matching.

When looking at multiple pearls which will be worn together, be sure that they look beautiful together! As a general rule, pearls worn together should be similar with regards to each Value Factor described above. This is especially true for luster. The many exceptions to the rule are designs for “artistic liberty”. For example, a multicolor strand will by definition have more than one color. Some people love subtle ranges of color or size, which is perfectly acceptable, too. Remember, it’s the overall “look” that is most important. – source: Pearls Necklace Pricewholesale pearls south sea pearls wholesale

Pearl Jewellery Online : Wanna know a Secret about most Jewelry Stores?

Pearl Jewellery Online : Wanna know a Secret about most Jewelry Stores?

pearl jewellery onlinePearl Jewellery Online : While we’re at it, do you want to know another little secret? Many jewelry stores may claim to follow a grading system for pearls but, unlike diamonds, pearls really do not have a standard grading system.

Surprised? While there are key factors that contribute to the value of a pearl which you will learn shortly – in the real world these are often judged subjectively through experience.

So, it’s important that you always ask the pearl vendor how they determine the grade. If they can’t tell you, that not a good sign! – tags : pearl jewellery online

Quick Review
Just to review: so far, we’ve briefly introduced the four major types or “species”of pearls you’re likely to see in the marketplace, and mentioned the importance of luster as a pearl value factor. – tags : pearl jewellery online

  1. South Sea Pearls (White and Golden)
  2. Freshwater Pearls
  3. Akoya Cultured Pearls
  4. Tahitian Black Pearls

This list is roughly in ascending order of price, with Freshwater pearls tending to be the least costly and South Sea pearls tending to be the most expensive. However, this is a *very general rule*. The truth is that it is really the 7 Value Factors, discussed next, which determine how
much an individual pearl or pearl strand is worth. – tags : pearl jewellery online

As we’re sure you want to get started looking at pearls right away, remember that the number one factor determining a pearl’s value is its luster. This is the pearl’s inner glow, the reflection you observe on the surface of the pearl.

wholesale pearlsThe importance of good luster in a pearl cannot be underestimated! In a pearl with better luster, you should be able to see the reflection of your finger clearly as you move it closer to the pearl.

An easy way to choose luster is to compare two pearls of different prices side-by-side using your finger’s reflection as a guide. If the reflections are fuzzy, move on… don’t spend your money wearing a lackluster pearl around town! Those who know pearls will notice (and you did intend to show your pearls off, right?)

The Four Main Types of Pearls, and how much you should pay for each!

The Four Main Types of Pearls… and how much you should pay for each!

wholesale pearlsAs you may already know, there are four major kinds of cultured pearls. Each type comes from a particular species of mollusk (an oyster or mussel), and the value of each varies considerably.

In the next section of this guide, you will learn more about each of them, especially judging value, but let’s start with an overview of the different pearl types:

1. South Sea Pearls South

Sea Pearls are the biggest and most valuable of all pearls, and come in two varieties: White and Golden. White South Sea Pearls are mostly grown in the waters off Australia and are the largest pearls on record. But the most valuable pearls in the world are the rare Golden South Sea Pearls, which come from the waters off Indonesia and the Philippines; most people have never even heard of Golden pearls, let alone held one up close.

2. Freshwater Pearls

Freshwater Pearls are generally the least expensive and the most common variety of pearl. This variety is cultivated in vast quantities in freshwater lakes, mostly in China and the United States. They often appear in pink or pastel colors, but are very commonly dyed to any color. You’ll see this variety sold in malls and your local Costco.

3. Akoya Cultured Pearls

Akoya Cultured Pearls were the first pearl variety to be cultivated commercially at the beginning of the 1900’s in Japan by Mikimoto and others. In general, the Akoya Pearl is considered a “step above” freshwater pearls in quality. This is the pearl type that often what comes to mind when someone mentions the word “pearl”: small, white, and shiny.

4. Tahitian Black Pearls

Tahitian Black Pearls might be called the “rock stars” of the pearl world, at least in terms of popularity! Actually, black is a misnomer since Tahitian pearls come in many hues of greens, blues, browns, and grays. While no one color is really“best” or most valuable, except in terms of personal preferences, green “peacock” shades are quite popular. Grown in Tahiti (French Polynesia) these pearls come much bigger than Akoyas and Freshwater pearls, and tend to cost more. (While Tahitian Pearls are sometimes referred to as “South Sea Pearls”, for the sake of clarity, we’ll treat them separately in this web guide.)

In this web guide, you will learn more about what to look for when shopping for each pearl
specific type, so that you know that you are in charge during your shopping process!
