Pearl Jewellery Online : Wanna know a Secret about most Jewelry Stores?
Pearl Jewellery Online : While we’re at it, do you want to know another little secret? Many jewelry stores may claim to follow a grading system for pearls but, unlike diamonds, pearls really do not have a standard grading system.
Surprised? While there are key factors that contribute to the value of a pearl which you will learn shortly – in the real world these are often judged subjectively through experience.
So, it’s important that you always ask the pearl vendor how they determine the grade. If they can’t tell you, that not a good sign! – tags : pearl jewellery online
Just to review: so far, we’ve briefly introduced the four major types or “species”of pearls you’re likely to see in the marketplace, and mentioned the importance of luster as a pearl value factor. – tags : pearl jewellery online
- South Sea Pearls (White and Golden)
- Freshwater Pearls
- Akoya Cultured Pearls
- Tahitian Black Pearls
This list is roughly in ascending order of price, with Freshwater pearls tending to be the least costly and South Sea pearls tending to be the most expensive. However, this is a *very general rule*. The truth is that it is really the 7 Value Factors, discussed next, which determine how
much an individual pearl or pearl strand is worth. – tags : pearl jewellery online
