Have you lately indulged yourself into pearls? Pearls being the most feminine gemstone amongst all is one of the most expensive, delicate and beautiful wonder that the nature has given to us. Pearls have been an object of fascination from centuries now as they are the most speculating jewels that are around us.

Pearls are the only gemstones that are formed by living organisms. Deep down on the sea-beds where a mother oyster lies, as some foreign body enters this mother oyster the reflex action of it makes it secrete ‘Nacre’ that is irritant and gives a layer to this foreign body. A slow process of making it into pearl takes a couple of decades and a lot many layers of calcium carbonate that are thin make them form of a perfect sphere and the luster that makes it shine radiantly.

The calcium carbonate is not just a single thin layer but thousands of thin layers that give it the desired shape. A pearl usually called as the natural pearl or the wild pearl takes years to be formed. These are the only natural gems that are opaque and yet the most feminine jewels that the world has known till date. These small radiant spheres have found their place in the jewelry market as one of the most amazing jewels and the only ones that are produced by living organisms. Since the process is very long of them being formed and the growing demand of pearls has eventually given rise to cultured pearls. In these instead of a foreign body invading the shell the technicians insert a nucleus in the shell and then the rest of the process from reflex action to forming the pearls is carried out.

There is a very thin difference between the natural and the wild pearl jewelry and cultured pearls that cannot be detected by naked eye. Both of them have an extravagant shine and the source of it is still the same with just little differences. It becomes really difficult to distinguish between them. Part from natural pearls and cultured pearls we also have saltwater pearls and freshwater pearls. Pearls are also classified according to their shapes. They are categorized as spherical pearls which are perfectly spherical, symmetrical pearls includes pear pearls and pearls that have a symmetrical shape from one side to another but they are definitely not round and baroque pearls are the irregular pearls.

The price tags of pearls are defined as per the shape, the more round the higher the price tag. Baroque pearls are the least expensive because of the irregularity in their shapes but yet they are adored in a similar way as spherical pearls and are unique and quite beautiful as a baroque pearl though is irregular but it is just one of that shapes. Pearls are usually white in color but they sometimes due to natural conditions can also be found in pink, silver, cream, golden-colored, green, blue black, yellow and rainbow colors. The cost of a white pearl is the highest as it the purest form. Pearls are the beautiful definition of perfect jewels and that just set the highest standards in jewelry market.
