A pearl is a hard and glistening object which was produced inside the soft tissue of a shelled mollusc. Just like the outer shell of the mollusc, the pearl is created from calcium carbonate. Ideally, pearls come out smooth and round, but many of them form other shapes which makes them known as baroque pearls. The highest quality natural pearls are valued as gemstones and have been the centrepiece for jewellery and other objects. True pairs sometimes come with high price tag, however faux pearls can have similar visual effects at a budget price. Pearls have been considered a status of elegance and can be added to any look to add a touch of class and simple beauty.

How to pick quality pearls?

When you are choosing a pearl, there are several grading factors to consider. Luster is what makes or breaks pearl as a gemstone. Then the next thing to consider is the surface quality, keep an eye out whether the pearl has smooth, clean surfaces as those are valued more highly than pearls with inclusions. Lastly, it is the symmetry of shape of the pearl. A true round shape, making it the most expensive.
