Also known as the “teardrops of the moon” or the “organic gemstone”, pearls for girls are gaining reputation and their prize is increasing faster than that of any other jewellery collection. With the understated beauty and elegance in addition to the cost that will not break your budget, most individuals are gravitating towards the precious gemstone. When hunting for a perfect pearl jewellery piece, you will have to consider several things.

First, what are pearls?

Pearls arise when the irritants – commonly sand – are lodged in an oyster. To protect itself from the intruders, the oyster releases more coats of nacre (an opaque substance) a coat on top of the other. With time, the nacre makes a pearl. The long process might take 6-24 months and the pearl comes in various shapes and colours.

Choosing between cultured and natural

A big difference between the cultured pearl and natural pearl relates to the creation of the pearls. Cultured pearls arise after a farmer injects irritants into an oyster in a controlled environment to facilitate faster and efficient pearls production. Natural pearls grow in the wild. And because harvesting the natural pearls is hard, they are rare and expensive. The cultured pearls are beautiful and inexpensive. If you need them, consider bridal stores in Sydney.
