Nature's natural gift from the waters of the world, pearls have always had a classic appeal. They are the perfect bride's gift, but are also correct for any special occasion such as anniversaries or birthdays.

 

Virtually all pearls on the market are cultured pearls. This means that with a little help from man, the oyster is given the opportunity over several years to create it's little treasure. Pearls can come from salt water seas as well as freash water lakes. Their size can range from a tiny 2mm bead to a giant 15mm wonder known as a South Sea pearl. The preferred color is a lustrous silver white while many prefer the more exotic colors that range from pastel shades of yellow and purple all the way to black.

 

Regardless of color, fine pearls are graded on their shape(mostly round), luster and freedom from blemishes. A light rose tint to white pearls is often preferred as it flatters most skin tones.

 

Pearls should be kept away from cosmetics, hairspray and perfume since they can dull the delicate nacre coating that is responsible for the pearls luster. As a result, when getiing dressed it is best to put them on last. With reasonable care, pearls will provide a lifetime of enjoyment.
