Buy Pearl Jewellery With The Best Designs
Pearls are hard stones produced by the soft tissue of mollusks. Calcium carbonate gets deposited in concentric layers which give pearls their perfectly round shape. Natural pearls are extremely rare and very expensive. For centuries, pearls have been valued as gems and are used as a symbol of purity and value. Pearls have a natural iridescent sheen which makes them excellent for use as jewellery. Since natural pearls are rare, most pearls used in pearl jewellery like pearl earrings, pearl necklaces, pearl rings and pearl sets are cultured/man-made or are imitation pearls.

These are pearls that form organically in nature. They are very rare and take three or more years to reach a large enough size to be used in pearl jewellery (4-12 mm diameter). The best natural pearls can be up to ten times more expensive than other pearls. The best pearls used to be harvested from the Persian Gulf but this practice ended with the discovery of oil.
Cultured pearls are formed the same way as natural pearls except that a pearl farmer will place a small bead or another irritant into the mollusk. They are considered as real as natural pearls and form a large share of the pearl jewellery market.
These are made by dipping a glass bead into a solution made from fish scales which imparts a coating to the bead. They are not as lustrous as other pearls.
