The most valuable pearl is the spherical one,
which evokes the idea of perfection.
Equally fascinating is the Baroque pearl, with its particular irregularities.
Each oyster gives pearls different diameters,
which is critical to determine their value.
The colour of a pearl varies, depending on the type of the oyster it comes from. To assess the beauty of its colour, it is necessary to place the pearl on a white surface, illuminated by lamps without UV rays. In this way it is possible to appreciate the different shades of the colours.
The surface of the pearl should be as much smooth and polished as possible, without blemishes or defects.
The orient is a technical parameter that defines the iridescence of the pearl. The iridescence is the capability to reflect light.
Some good advice
In order to preserve the luster of pearls we suggest to avoid wearing them when using perfume or cosmetics. Clean them with a damp cotton cloth and store them in a cloth separately from other items.
