Everything you need to know about Pearls

Even though there are many attractive and glittering gemstones, only one is given the status of “Queen of Gems,” and that gemstone is famously known as a pearl. Have you seen that beauty? For good reason, pearls have become the most treasured gemstone of all time. In the course of human history, pearl jewelry has emerged as an embodiment of virtue and elegance. Since they were so uncommon and expensive, pearls were mainly valued by royalty and the powerful. Julius Caesar, the renowned emperor of ancient Rome, even enacted a law forbidding the wearing of pearls by members of the lower classes.

It is clear from your appearance here that you are craving the same surge of affection that pearl jewellery brings to us. For your benefit, we at Thaya Jewels have gathered all the essential knowledge about pearls and pearl jewellery for you here. We highly urge you to explore every bit of information provided here so you can leave with no questions and the ideal pearl jewellery in your mind.

Types of Pearl on basis of formation and water

Do you know that pearls are the sole jewels to originate from a living thing, which is why they are known as everlasting precious stones? Pearls typically fall into one of two categories depending on the act of formation. They are mainly cultured and natural pearls.

Natural Pearls

An oyster, mollusc, or clam will produce a pearl if an irritating particle—such as a shell piece or a parasite—becomes lodged inside the animal. As a defence mechanism, they start to produce fluid layers that are known as nacre. A stunning natural pearl is created from the layers that were first produced to shield the oyster, mollusc, or clam against foreign irritants. This natural process takes a lengthy period—it can even take years!

Are you aware that only one pearl can be found in ten thousand wild oysters? We now understand why natural pearls are among the world’s most valuable gems. It makes perfect sense why pearls are becoming extremely highly priced!

Cultured Pearls

On the other hand, pearls that are obtained through human direct participation are known as cultured pearls. A nucleus is artificially placed into the oyster’s tissue by farmers. When the oyster perceives it as an irritation, it rushes to wrap it in thin coatings of nacre. Who is more skilled at what they do than nature? These gorgeous pearls are created artificially by this procedure. Cultured pearls make up a large proportion of the pearls sold currently.

You might be surprised to learn that the first person to make a cultured pearl, Kokichi Mikimoto, took almost two decades. His breakthrough not only benefited millions of creatures but also completely transformed the pearl industry!

There are numerous methods to categorize pearls, but were you aware that a pearl’s luster and pricing can greatly vary depending on where it was grown and, more particularly, what kind of water it was in? There are two varieties of pearls based on the type of water. These are primarily freshwater and saltwater pearls.

Freshwater Pearls

Freshwater pearls are produced by mollusks that are found in streams and rivers, as well as ponds. Despite being smaller than saltwater pearls, freshwater pearls have a larger range of forms and hues. They are a popular option for everyday jewelry because they are less pricey than saltwater pearls. Freshwater pearls don’t have as much gloss or luster as saltwater pearls.

Saltwater Pearls

The oysters that dwell in saltwater conditions, such as the ocean, are the source of saltwater pearls. In comparison to freshwater pearls, saltwater pearls are larger, have a smaller variety of shapes, and are more frequently white or off-white with tints of either gold or silver. Compared to freshwater pearls, saltwater pearls are much more highly priced and showcase a more dazzling lustre and elegance.

Why is original pearl jewelry so expensive?

Pearls, which were originally a legendary portrayal of the goddess Aphrodite’s happy tears, evolved into symbols of richness, grandeur, and beauty. For starters, Marie Antoinette’s pearl pendant, being the most priced natural pearl ever bought at auction, fetched $32 million at a Sotheby’s sale in 2018. Here are a few factors that explain why original pearl jewellery is so expensive.

  • Rarity

    Divers have demonstrated over a very long period of time that natural pearls are on the verge of extinction. As a result, they are currently difficult to locate on the ocean’s surface. Original pearl jewellery has grown noticeably more expensive in society as a result of its scarcity.

  • Size and Shape

    Original pearl jewelry that features drop-shaped and precisely circular pearls can be very expensive. In terms of size, a pearl’s price will often increase as it becomes bigger.

  • Colour

    The value of pearl jewellery increases when it contains pearls that are naturally black in hue or unusual colours like gold. For instance, Tahitian pearl jewellery can cost anywhere from $500 to more than $25,000 due to its rare dark colour.

The Perfect Pairings Lookbook

1. Simple Graphic Tee & Shorts Paired With Our Music Of The Sea Bracelet

We’re a sucker for classics, and there’s nothing quite like a white graphic tee and a pair of denim cut-offs (a traditional summer staple) to remind us of a simpler time. Also, just because something is old doesn’t mean it must be dull! Add a fashionable baseball cap or our Music Of The Sea Bracelet to complete this classic beach outfit ensemble.

The bracelet is created in sterling silver, showcasing ceramic tidal beads and gold-plated dolphin tails. Each tidal pearl has a unique bubble shape and is handcrafted to perfection. The bracelet represents your life; each minute and second is lovely and valuable. The dolphins leaping from the water and glinting with golden light represent that the time you spend now will be a beautiful memory tomorrow.

This has to be one o our favorite beach outfits. Crocheted cover-up piece is the perfect way to show off your bikini without revealing too much. It is a summer must-have because of its free-flowing, airy, and comfortable design. Pair it with our Ring Pendant and Ring Charm Bracelet.

Bikinis and Beach Outfits go hand in hand! Don’t they? There’s no better time than summer to wear something soft, comfortable, and fluorescent, especially on a low-key beach day with friends. But keep in mind that you can relax while still looking lovely. Pair your clothing with a neutral pair of sandals, or go all out with a pair that matches your outfit, and with these ensembles, you’ll shine as brightly as the sun!

4. Kaftan-It-Up With The Compass Pendant And Bracelet

In the summer, we all strive to be as low-maintenance as possible: the heat makes us feel lazy, and any complex costume at the beach is bound to get uncomfortable. As a result, one of our favorite beach outfits has to be the Kaftan, which also serves as a cover-up. It’s quick and easy, looks like it took more effort than it did, and doesn’t need wriggling into a pair of jeans! Finish it off with strappy sandals, a favorite summer purse, and some elegant yet minimal sterling silver jewelry. With a simple Kaftan dress, you can maintain your swimwear style while also having something to throw on when the beach air gets too cold.

Compass stars are thought to represent direction, protection, motivation, and inspiration. The Compass Pendant is a piece of jewelry that is meticulously detailed and beautiful in its interpretation of a nautical pattern. A hollow compass pendant with a needle is set in the center of the neckpiece. The initials of the directions are etched on the pendant, giving it a natural appearance.

The Compass bracelet is both cute and classy. It has three compass stars stationed at different points on the chain bracelet, which features subtle wave-like decorations in the center. The semi-anchor style of the chain and bracelet is ideal for those who appreciate uncomplicated jewelry.

5. Spruce Up Your Maxi Dress Look With Lantern Earrings 

Summer was created for colorful, airy clothes. Ruffled or maxi dresses are a summer favorite and are always a hit and make one of the staple beach outfits. And you can’t go wrong with a simple option when getting ready for a day at the beach; they look wonderful on everyone, and tie-dye or light white dress is ideal for everything from a beach bonfire to a picnic. With a pair of simple sandals or a lovely sun hat, you’ve got a smart and comfy outfit that’s ideal for relaxing on the beach in something other than your swimwear.

Fireflies and lanterns, both attractive sources of light, inspired this fabulous pair of earrings. The Lantern Earrings are asymmetrical, with one earring featuring a large plum similar to Orbuculum with a lantern cover and the other studded with a little firefly. The Orbuculum structure is made of translucent crystal that has been electroplated with purple color to give the lantern shape lovely hues. The flowing tassels on both of these earrings add to their beauty.
