Pearls & Their Colours

The very word “pearl” brings to mind other words such as fine, rare and valuable. Pearls that are perfectly round and smooth are the most prized. Valuable pearls are found in nature but they are exceedingly rare. Cultured or farmed pearls make up the vast majority of the pearls marketed. Freshwater pearls grow with in molluscs in rivers and streams. Saltwater pearls grow only inside oysters in lagoons and salt water seas. As previously noted, pearls grow naturally in many colours. South Sea pearls are the colour of the oyster host. They may be pink, white, gold, silver, green, lavender, champagne or perhaps a combination of colours. Black pearls are almost exclusively a result of culturing since they are extremely rare in nature. Pearls may be dyed to a custom colour if desired.

History of Pearls

Pearls have been considered “the gift of love” every since. Pearls have been prized by nobles and the very wealthy for centuries both as jewellery and as adornment sewn into apparel. These displays give rise to the modern practice of sewing seed pearls onto the fabric of the wedding dress.
