Pearls are known as gifts from the sea. They are each uniquely different and
yet can be matched for a beautiful strand of pearls.
Pearls are considered birthstones for the month of June.
Each woman will be grateful to have a wonderful ruby jewelry
piece in this beautiful month. Special gemstones have been
linked to dates of birth for centuries.
Pearl jewelry is unlike any other precious gemstone jewelry because it need no enhancements such as cutting or polishing to help admire their captivating beauty. Pearls come in many colors ranging from pale cream or white to rose, lilac, green, gold, gray and Tahitian black. Because they are made by nature, they also come in many sizes and shapes.
If you wear your pearl jewelry frequently, be sure to have them restrung every year or so. The silk that pearls are strung on does deteriorate with wear. Pearls will remain beautiful and durable for years if taken care of properly. Proper care can preserve and extend the life of pearl jewelry. Since pearls are relatively soft, they can be easily scratched, so store them so that their surface never touches metal or other gemstones.
To avoid your gemstones and metal jewelry scratching each other, never store your jewelry in piles. Alternatively, store them in separate sections of a jewelry box or wrap them separately in velvet, paper or silk. The safest method of cleaning most gem stone jewelry is to use a mild warm soapy water solution and a soft brush, patting dry with a soft cloth. With a little care, pearls can last a lifetime and be passed down from generation to generation.
When purchasing pearl jewelry, overall look is very important. Step back, look at the entire strand, and decide for yourself if they are matched for color, even in shape, consistent in luster and sheen from each pearl to the next, and have a very consistent appearance.
Pearl jewelry buyers have absolutely nothing to compare quality
with in a made-up system, so if your jeweler doesn't give
full details about how they determine their pearl quality,
Natural gems are brought to us courtesy of nature, with no interference from humans. By the time they appear in jewelry they've been cut or polished, but they've not been treated or altered in other ways. Love and care of your pearl jewelry and it will last a lifetime and be passed down from generation to generation.
