Pearl necklace guide

Pearl Necklaces – classic jewelery also for trend-conscious ladies

Pearls, along with diamonds and other precious and semiprecious stones, have been among the most popular materials for producing high quality jewelry for many centuries. Especially ladies can warm themselves today as then for the special charm of pearls. pearl necklaces are among the most common jewelery made from pearls. They are not only available in different lengths, one, two or more rows and in combination with different precious metals and gemstones, but also from different beads. Because a pearl is not just a pearl – there are big differences between the different species in terms of color, origin, size and the way the pearl was created. Above all, the latter has a big impact on the value of the pearls and therefore also on the value of the resulting ones pearl necklaces ,

Real and artificial pearls

A rough distinction is between real and artificial pearls. A real pearl is always produced by a shell, while artificial pearls are made of different plastics. Although modern art pearls look like the real thing, if you buy a pearl necklace, you can easily tell if it has genuine or artificial pearls. The simplest method for this is the rubbing together of 2 beads. If this results in a feeling of friction or even dissolves a little of a bright powdery substance, then it is almost certainly true pearls. Because these are due to their nature as a natural product always a bit uneven whereby the feeling of friction or even abrasion is generated. Wrong beads made of plastic or glass, however, are almost perfectly smooth. Also, a natural pearl is in most cases perfectly spherical – unlike art pearls.

Pearl necklace made of natural or cultured pearls

At the number pearl necklaces Manufactured today, they are no longer all made from natural pearls, which are still the most expensive pearls. Because seldom does a shell produce without the intervention of the outside a pearl in the quality, as it is needed for a pearl necklace. Therefore, pearls are grown by planting a foreign body on a shell around which it then forms a pearl. The formation of these cultured pearls is closely monitored so that they can be „harvested“ at the right moment and size. Those who do not want to spend a fortune on a pearl necklace will almost always choose a necklace of cultured pearls, as natural pearls are rare and the price of such a necklace is only affordable for the fewest people.

Freshwater and saltwater cultured pearls

There are mussel species in both freshwater and saltwater that allow cultured pearls to be produced. Saltwater cultured pearls for pearl necklaces are more expensive than cultured pearls from freshwater shells due to the more elaborate process. Therefore, too pearl necklaces from saltwater pearls significantly more expensive than those from freshwater cultured pearls. For saltwater pearls, the shell is implanted with a nucleus, the so-called nucleus, around which the mussels form the pearl through the deposition of many mother-of-pearl layers. Such saltwater cultured pearls are usually round. On the other hand, for freshwater cultured pearls of the shell tissue of another shell is planted. So there is no core here, so the pearl can take on very different forms. This makes them interesting for the jewelry industry, because it can also produce pearl necklaces with pearls in oval or other form. Both fresh and saltwater cultured pearls are available in different colors and shades, depending, among other things, on the water and the pearl-forming shell. Depending on the color, the price of a pearl necklace may vary. For example, pearl necklaces made from black Tahitian pearls with the most expensive saltwater cultured pearl necklaces are in great demand due to their rare beauty.
