Product description

The Evolution of a Pearl

Pearls can grow in fresh or salt water when an external corpuscle (irritating particle such as sand) enters an oyster; either naturally or manually.
When this happens, the shellfish immediately tries to eject the corpuscle. If it fails, it tries to protect itself by covering the intruder with a natural secretion.  The particle is coated again and again, and grows larger with each layer.

Kokichi Mikimoto was the first to successfuly cause the same evolution artificially by inserting a sphere of nacre (mother-of-pearl particle) into oysters and then preserving them in baskets suspended in the sea.
In the beginning, pearl farmers used women divers called AMA (Japanese word meaning Daughter of the Sea) to harvest wild oysters from the bottom of the sea.  They accomplished this by learning to hold their breath for several minutes.
Our brand name - D'AMA - honors these extraordinary divers.

Natural pearls are generated in wild oysters by chance.  Only a few types of oysters have the ability to generate pearls and survive, and the likelihood of finding them in the vastness of the oceans is small.
The South Sea farmers such as Australians, Indonesians and Tahitians use only wild oysters found in the ocean by divers, and finding oysters with pearls is very rare.
Creating a necklace using only natural pearls can take several years.

Cultured pearls are artificially generated by oyster farmers, in so-called 'baby oyster farms'.  They can be cultured in the sea (Australia, Tahiti, Indonesia & the Phillipines), or in cold, freshwater lakes and rivers (China & Japan).  The development of the techniques of reproduction and materials not only help to lower the cost of cultured pearls, but strongly contribute to an impressive improvement of pearl quality and production capabilities. 
Cultured pearls can be classified in two different types:

1. Nucleated cultured pearls: These pearls are seeded with a nacre (mother of pearl) nucleus, a method originating in Japan.  The resulting pearls can be classified as Akoya (5-9.5 mm) or South Sea (9-18 mm) cultured pearls and are mainly manufactured in Australia, Indonesia, Tahiti and the Philippines.

2. Freshwater Cultured Pearls: These pearls are started with a small particle of skin from another oyster (if halved, you would find pure onchiolin - oyster secretion - throughout, with no inorganic nucleus).  This technique is used in cold, freshwater lakes and rivers in China & Japan. The Chinese freshwater cultured pearls are today the outsider of the market.

A few years ago, Chinese farmers started using the Japanese Akoya technique using mother-of-pearl nuclei, and started producing pearls over 12 mm. New techniques and experience are leading to great results, and the Australian pearls are started to be overcome with the expanding production capacity of Chinese farmers.
Colors:
Pearls can be found in many various colors, shapes, and sizes.  White is the most common color of pearls, and can have subtle hints of other colors - silver, pink, and green most notably.
Peacock pearls (also known as Black Pearls) are very popular, and are usually a dark grey with variations toward purples, blues and greens.
Gold pearls can lean toward yellow or pink, are are gaining in popularity.

Luster:
The most important factor in a pearl's luster is the temperature of the water it was cultured in.  Warm water leads to a quicker formation with thin layers, and a duller sheen.  Cold water will cause pearls to form slower, but with a much higher luster.
Chemicals can be added during the cultivation process to improve color, luster, and stability.
Size:
Cultivated pearls are measured in millimeters with a precision gauge, and can come in sizes ranging from 1 to 20 mm, with 7mm being the most common size.
 

Shape:
Nucleated pearls always start with a perfectly round 'seed', but pearls can grow into many different shapes.  Round pearls are the most sought after, followed by drop pearls (oval), then button; a slightly flattened round pearl.
