Renowned for their elegance, Pearls have long been treasured as precious gemstones. Their timelessness and classic appearance still make them a popular option for engagement rings, necklaces, and earrings.
It is difficult to trace the origin of pearls to a particular location, however, it is believed that they were discovered by people who were looking for food near the sea. Pearls are the only organic gems which are formed by a sea creature. Due to their organic nature, they are not considered to be minerals. Pearls make a great gift for your loved ones who were born in June.
Pearls have a very distinct formation process compared to other gemstones. Instead of the earth's mantle or crust, pearls are formed when an irritant, such as a grain of sand, gets trapped in a mollusk. To protect itself, the mollusk wraps the irritant with nacre (mother-of-pearl). This shell grows over time and becomes a pearl.
Cultured pearls are very commonly used in necklaces, rings, and earrings. While there is a misunderstanding that cultured pearls synthetic, they are natural. The difference is that cultured pearls are formed by oysters in oyster farms. The oyster farmers kickstart the process by placing an irritant into the mollusk, mimicking a naturally occurring process. The oyster needs to be three years old to form pearls. Synthetic pearls, on the other hand, are inorganic, lab-grown pearls.
Pearls have a hardness rating of 2.5 on the Mohs hardness scale, which makes them brittle. Rings are especially more vulnerable to wear and tear so they require extra caution while wearing. However, their fragile nature is not an obstacle for you to wear them. With proper attention and care, pearl jewelry would also make a great heirloom. To avoid any inconveniences, take off your pearl jewelry before engaging in physical activities. We recommend you to wear your pearl jewelry after applying skincare products and perfumes.
