When it comes to buying pearls, the following factors are considered important: the size, shape, color, luster, surface quality and nacre quality. Shape: The round shape is the most rarest shape as it is difficult to culture. However, buyers also value pear shaped, oval, or baroque. Color: In terms of color, pearls are available in a wide range of hues, from yellow, orange and pink to blue, green and violet as well as tone, which ranges form light to dark. Luster: This is what gives a natural or cultured pearl its distinctive attractiveness. Luster that is excellent is considered bright, sharp and distinct; good is when the reflection is not very sharp and is slightly hazy; fair is when the reflections are blurred, hazy and not very sharp and pearls that have a poor luster is when the reflection is dim and diffused. Nacre quality: Under the nacre, if the nucleus is visible or the pearl appears to have a dull appearance, then that indicates that the nacre is thin.
== == 1. Type of Pearl (ie: South Seas are much more valuable than Freshwater)
2. Size of Pearl: the larger the pearl, the more valuable it will be.
3. Quality of Pearl: the rounder and more clean the suface of the pearl, the more it will be worth. Round pearls are more valuable than baroque or off-round pearls.
4. Cultured vs. Natural: natural pearls are inherently more valuable than cultured pearls due to their rarity.
5. Color of Pearl: For white pearls, whiter pearls tend to be more valuable than pearls that have yellowish or cream hues. For Golden South Seas, the value is highly dependent on the saturation of the gold color.
When purchasing pearls, ask questions before purchasing:
First thing is size and shape, the larger and more creamy the color the better, Second is the weight of the pearl itself third is area it is from since some areas are very rare to find Pearls they are of course more costly to locate. There is a grading scale, but I shall see if I can find that again. this is based on depth of color and luminescence. This is all based on it being a salt water raw pearl of course and not a cultured pearl which is seeded in a farmed bed. The six factors tells the value of a pearl as follow: * pearl luster * pearl nackre thickness * pearl surface * pearl color * pearl size * pearl shape Usually, it takes more than 2 years for oysters to cover the irritant with layer upon layer of nacre i.e. to form a pearl. A quality pearl requires certain thickness of nacre. Pearls are valued as gemstones and are cultivated or harvested for jewelry.
