7 frequently asked questions about pearl jewelry

Pearl jewelry is a timeless investment. It can be worn by everyone and is perfect for any occasion. Pearl necklaces are a classic piece of jewelry that has been around since ancient times. They are known as the “Queen of Gems” because they are so elegant and luxurious looking, but also very affordable compared to other gemstones such as diamonds or rubies.

How to wear pearl necklaces?

Pearls can be worn in multiple ways, depending on your preference and occasion. Pearls can also add a touch of sophistication to any outfit, whether it's casual or formal. When it comes to matching pearls with other jewelry pieces, the most important thing to keep in mind is that pearls should always be paired with other gemstones; otherwise, they'll look out of place.

Pearls also look great when paired with bolder colors like gold or silver as well as pastel shades like blue and pink. If you're looking for an attractive piece of pearl jewelry but don't know where (or how) to start shopping, we've got some suggestions below!

How to clean pearl necklaces?

You can clean your pearl necklace with a soft toothbrush and mild soap.
Use the toothbrush to gently scrub off any dirt or dust that has gotten on the pearls, then rinse them in water.
Use a soft cloth to dry them after rinsing.
Do not use chemicals to clean your pearl jewelry; this might damage or remove the finish from your pearls and make them look less attractive over time.

What makes a pearl necklace valuable?

Quality of Pearls. The first thing to consider when determining the value of a pearl necklace is the quality of pearls used in its construction. Professionals rely on many different factors to assess this, but often these are subtle things that only trained eyes can detect—things like luster, shape, color and size. You may be thinking: What’s so special about these little balls? Well, technically speaking pearls are not balls at all; they’re formed from calcium carbonate secreted by oysters and mollusks over time as they protect themselves from predators by surrounding themselves with layers of nacre (a substance similar to mother-of-pearl). As this mineral builds up around their bodies it forms what we know today as a pearl; it takes anywhere between 6 months to 10 years before one is fully grown enough for harvest.

Why should men wear a pearl necklace?

Pearl jewelry is a classic accessory that can be worn for any occasion, and the pearl necklace is no exception. Men's pearl necklaces are extremely versatile—they can be worn with a tuxedo or a t-shirt, depending on the occasion. Men's pearl necklaces come in many different colors and styles; however, white pearls are considered to be the most formal option for men’s jewelry. For example: If your dress shirt has silver buttons or cufflinks on it (or if there’s some other reason why you want to wear white pearls), then white is the best choice for you! If you have an elegant evening gown made out of black lace (and we hope that this is not something that happens too often), then black might be better suited for your needs!

Are pearls expensive?

Pearls are not expensive, but some pearls are more expensive than others. The value of a pearl depends on its size and quality, as well as its shape. Larger pearls can be more valuable, but it is important to remember that larger does not always mean better quality or higher price.

Large freshwater cultured pearls tend to cost less than saltwater cultured pearls because they are less rare and come from mussels that grow them in rivers rather than oceans (where there is limited space for farming). If you are looking for a high-quality freshwater pearl that will last forever, then I would recommend starting with the smaller sizes ranging between 7-9mm (smaller since these have more nacre).

How do I tell if pearls are good quality?

The most important thing to look for is a luster, or shine. This can be hard to judge in person on a pearl that's been worn, but ideally the surface should be even and bright.

Another key factor to consider is color and texture. Some pearls are more translucent than others, so you'll want to compare how much light passes through them—this will help you determine if they're real or fake. You'll also want to check out the pearl's iridescence: If it has a rainbow sheen when rotated under light, it's probably a fake! Finally, make sure there aren't any dark spots in the middle of your pearls' surface—these spots can indicate small cracks (also known as 'craze marks').

No matter what style you're after, pearls are always a great addition to a jewelry collection! They are versatile, timeless and stylish. If you're thinking about adding pearls to your rotation then shop our full range of freshwater pearl jewelry HERE
