Gemologist, Diamonds & Fine Jewellery Since 1971

 

Since the dawn of man, pearls, with their mysterious glow and shimmering iridescence, have been one of the most highly prized and sought after gems in the world.

Quality considerations to determine value include, 

1. Lustre - Surface brilliance

2. Surface Cleanliness

3. Shape - Most desired is round

4. Colour - Cultured pearls occur in colours from white to black and just about every colour in between.

5. Size - Generally the larger the pearl the more valuable it will be.

One of the most fascinating attributes about pearls is that they accent or bring together the whole ensemble, rather than drawing attention to themselves.
