Pearl : The Queen Of Jewels

Updated: Sep 28



People around the world have treasured pearls for thousands of years. The “Queen of Jewels" possesses a timeless quality that has continued to captivate people from the time it was first discovered until today. Despite the jewel’s longstanding popularity, there are myriad Pearl facts that many people don’t know about. Here, we explore few of such facts about Pearls that explain a part of the reason why they are so special.


WORLD'S RAREST JEWELS



Despite being classified as a gemstone, Pearls differ significantly from all others (including Sapphires, Rubies, Emeralds, etc.) due to the fact that they are the only gems to come from a living creature. All other gemstones form in the Earth’s crust as magma cools under high pressure. Here is a statistic worth considering: less than 1 in every 10,000 wild oysters contain Pearls. As the popularity of these gems continued to grow in the early part of the 20th century, the population of occurring oyster beds in the ocean’s waters became severely depleted from overfishing. Despite the rise of cultured Pearls, the population of wild oysters still hasn’t completely recovered. Given that, it’s understandable why people consider natural pearls one of the rarest jewels on the planet.


VERSATILE GEM



Pearls are always appropriate, and never go out of fashion. There’re so many different ways of wearing Pearl jewellery. For example, a strand of lustrous Fresh Water Pearls can instantly add a touch of elegance to your outfit. Layering and building up depth and shine can be fun and impactful. As considered the most wearable piece, a pair of Pearl stud earrings are just perfect for any occasion. For black-tie dinners, weddings and anniversaries, the exotic Tahitian and South Sea Pearl and Diamond jewellery creates depth and drama, making it an ultimate showstopper to mark the occasion.


BAROQUE PEARL : PERFECT IMPERFECTION



Say the word Pearl and what comes to mind? We bet you're thinking of a milky white, lustrous perfect sphere. Perfection has always been key when it comes to Pearls. Enter Baroque Pearls. These are imperfect Pearls of irregular shapes and sizes, with dented and uneven surfaces. They often exhibit beautiful cluster and colours. Interestingly, the imperfection aren't seen as flaws when it comes to Baroque Pearls. Rather, they are celebrated for their uniqueness. No two Baroque Pearls will be exactly alike and every piece of jewellery that utilises Baroque Pearls showcases something different.

LAYERING PEARLS


Coco Chanel was world famous for her fashion lines. But, it was her statement about pearls that many seem to remember most:
“A woman needs ropes and ropes of pearls.”
Here we are creeping upon a century later, and her declaration still rings true.

Layering Pearl necklaces is really in right now! That’s because the only thing more stylish than a strand of Pearls, is more and more Pearls. If you’re into fashion trends, this one makes the ultimate statement of dazzling sophistication. Pearl layers are quite appropriate for black-tie events, benefits, galas and other upscale social affairs. But, these days, they are also appropriate for more toned-down events. That can be laid back gear, casual attire even office outfits… anywhere you simply want to look dazzling. And, what makes Pearl layers even more fun is that it’s not just limited to layering Pearl necklaces. You can layer Pearl bracelets and Pearl rings as well. The true beauty of Pearls is that they are powerful and timeless.
