Pearls are the most unique and beautiful gemstones in the world. If you consider the way that pearls are grown, the miracle of their growth shows just how special and rare they are. There are several different types of pearls in the world today. These include Freshwater, Akoya, Tahitian, and South Sea pearls.

Each of these pearls has characteristics that sent them apart from other types of pearls. Freshwater pearls for example are the most common type of pearl because they are the easiest to produce. The oyster that grows Freshwater pearls can produce more than five pearls each time it is harvested, making the resource great.

Freshwater pearls though common, are stunning in their own right. These pearls come in colors of pink, lavender, gray and white. The colors of Freshwater pearls can be enhanced to any color desirable, which helps in designing one- of- a kind pieces. These pearls also come in many different shapes and sizes, making them one of the most popular types of pearls.

One other reason that people love freshwater pearls is because they are the most affordable type of pearl since they are produced easily. This fact does not take away from the quality or exquisiteness each pearl possesses. Akoya pearl are well-know because of their small, round shapes. These pearls start growing in the oyster round 3 millimeters and only reach sizes of 8 or 9 mm, which compared to other types of pearls is incredibly small. Akoya oysters are nucleated in a way that ensures a flawless shape for the pearl.

During the time of implantation, a small, perfectly round irritant is placed inside the oyster. The nacre from the oyster then grows over the irritant in many layers creating a perfect pearl. Tahitian and South Sea pearls are the most rare pearls in the world. These pearls are large in size, starting around 8mm and reaching sizes up to 20mm at times. These pearls are distinctive because of the colors they come in. Tahtiain pearls are considered black pearls but come in gray, blue, purple, rose, turquoise, and even peacock. South Sea pearls are gold, silver, and creamy white. Both types of pearls are only grown in certain areas of the world, making them very popular.
