Your Guide to Become a Jewelry Expert
Pearls are said to be the most feminine gemstones and considered as priced possessions for their innocent beauty and rarity. The existence of pearls dates back to more than 4000 years ago. But it definitely adds that elegance and sophistication to your appearance till today, be it any type of pearl- Natural or Cultured.
Natural Pearls, as the name suggests, are formed by nature. When a small particle, typically a parasite or organic matter accidentally becomes embedded in the tissue of oyster or mollusk, the mantle tissues secrete nacre and the nacre building up in layers eventually forms a pearl. Formation of a natural pearl is a purely accidental phenomenon. Natural pearls are 100% nacre.
Cultured Pearls are those formed by deliberate intervention of man. The process of formation of cultured pearls is no different from that of natural pearls except that, here the entrance of a foreign particle is not accidental but intentionally done by man. Culturing of pearls gained momentum as natural pearls are rare to find.
Both Natural and Cultured Pearls can be either Freshwater or Saltwater Pearls:-
Given below are a few popular types of pearls majorly used in jewelry-making:-
Imitation Pearls are simply referred as artificial pearls i.e. pearls that are not created from oysters. Thus they do not fall under the category of true Pearls and are very low in quality due to the difference in weight, smoothness and luster.
The enticing variety available in genuine Pearl Jewelry is highly commendable at B2C Jewels.
