Throughout history "pearls" were known as one of the first gemstones en were mainly used to combine with jewellery. The most important pearlareas are spread over a big part of the world, mainly in China, America, Japan, southeast Asia, Australia and French Polynesia.
Here you see a few examples from our wide selection of pearls ranging from "baroque" (irregular shapes) to the round pearls in all it's colour varieties. (from Chinese to Japanese and Tahitian pearls)
Pearls are cultivated in sweet (lake) as well as in saltwater and take about 3 to 4 years to come to maturity. After that the center (can be different shapes) is inserted inside the oyster around where the pearl develops itself by producing several calcareous layers.
The pearl is an organic natural product of animal origin and is therefore influenced through natural elements such as temperature of water, plankton and saltlevel of the environment. (is controlled on a regular basis)
After this growingproces, a first quick selection is made where the irregular (baroque) pearls are being distinguished from the round pearls for than being graded on colour, shape, luster and size. * This last selection determines the actual value of the pearl necklace.
