Pearls, amber and coral are precious gems produced by plants and animals.

These gems are adored because they are so attractive and rare and have thus been worn as jewellery for thousands of years. The most highly prized and the most expensive of this group are the fabulous and amazing pearls, they have one unique quality, which is, they can be worn by anyone, at any time, in any situation!

Factors affecting the price of pearls.

Pearl types, Lustre, thickness of nacre, colour, shape, size, surface quality, treatment status. The most expensive type of pearl is the natural pearl, these were the only type available until about 1900, when Mikimoto started to produce cultured pearls. Cultured pearls are from farmed oysters, whereas natural pearls come from “wild” oysters. Also, we have sea water pearls from the oceans and freshwater pearls from the rivers and streams. Seed pearls were very small pearls used extensively in Victorian jewellery. Artificial pearls are made from many materials often coloured glass.

Pearls are traditionally the birthstone for June.

Care of your vintage-antique pearls.

Pearls are delicate and can easily be damaged, pearl is just 2.5 on the Mohs hardness scale. They should be wrapped in silk cloth so that they do not dry out or become scratched by other hard objects or jewellery.

Pearls absorb oils from your skin and it keeps them looking bright and lustrous, otherwise, pearls will dry out.

Also, pearls are not resistant to sprays and perfumes.
