The Pearl Guide

Pearls are often underrated, because peple have preconceived notions about what they represent. Many people feel that they are the jewelry that grandmas wear, or that they can only be worn for formal occasions. These preconceived notions are no longer true. Pearls can be worn by women of all ages. Whether you are wearing them to the office or during a casual day. They can be worn with a suit, a dress or even a pair of jeans. They are a true classic style.

The journey of a pearl is truly a miraculous event. While gemstones have to be cut and polished to bring out their beauty, pearls do not need this type of treatment to reveal their beauty.

Pearl Color

Possibly the best-loved gems of all time, pearls — both natural and cultured pearls — occur in a wide variety of colors. The most familiar colors are white and cream. Black, gray, and silver are also fairly common, but the palette of pearl colors extends to every hue. The main color, or bodycolor, is often modified by additional colors called overtones, which are typically pink, green, purple, or blue. Some pearls also show the iridescent phenomenon known as orient.
