Frequently Asked Questions
Q: What are the differences between cultured and naturally occurring pearls?
A: Pearls are formed thanks to the attempted rejection and eventual co-opting of an invading foreign object into a mollusk or an oyster, and the shaping and polishing effect of the smoothing secretions inside the shell. A naturally occurring pearl is formed when a small foreign substance accidentally falls in the shell. In a cultured pearl the insertion of the foreign object is done with human assistance, and the mollusks and oysters are cultivated in fresh water or salt water farms depending on the type of pearl. The great majority of pearls grown today are cultured pearls.
Q: What are the difference between Akoya Saltwater and Freshwater Cultured Pearls?
A: Freshwater Cultured Pearls and Saltwater Cultured Pearls differ dramatically in terms of how they are formed. However, the main difference as the name indicates is that Akoya pearls are formed in oysters in salt waters and freshwater pearls are formed in mollusks in fresh waters.
Q: How are pearls graded?
A: Pearls are graded as A, AA or AAA for being Medium, Good or Very Good quality. Tahitian, South-Sea Peals have a grading system of A/B/C/D, "A" bing the highest grade.
Q: What are Tahitian or South-Sea Pearls?
A: Tahitian Pearls, also known as "Natural Black Pearls," are the only naturally occurring dark pearl. Though referred to as "black pearls," they are rarely ever a true black color. Generally they are gray to green in body color and can have overtones of every color of the rainbow. They are mainly exported from French Polynesia.
South Sea Pearls are usually either white/silver or golden in color. These are the largest of all the pearl types, and the most rare; they have only been able to successfully culture these pearls in their natural habitat of the South Sea waters. These pearls are mainly exported from Australia and Indonesia.
