Magnificent Pearls

The birthstone for June is the opulent pearl. Today, the pearl still remains a symbol of purity, elegance and beauty.

Pearls come in a variety of different shapes, colours and sizes. Natural freshwater pearls come from mussels that live in ponds, rivers, and lakes, whereas a cultured pearl is a pearl created by a oyster farmer under controlled conditions.

Freshwater Pearls

Depending on the type of mussel, freshwater pearls come in a number of pretty pastel shades such as, white, black, pink, peach, lavender, plum, purple, and tangerine.

Akoya Pearls

Akoya pearls are produced by Japan’s Akoya oysters. They are the classic white pearls and typically have the highest luster and greatest shine of all cultured pearls.

Tahitian Pearls

Tahitian pearls are the only pearl to naturally achieve a black body colour. They are an organic gem formed from the black lip oyster and primarily cultivated around the islands of French Polynesia, around Tahiti.

South Sea Pearls

South Sea pearls are exceptional quality pearls, they come from the white-lipped variety of the pinctada maxima oyster, and they are the most expensive pearl on the market due to their rarity.

 

We recently launched our beautiful, luxurious Pearl and Tassel jewellery collection.
