Pearls come in a variety of colors and shapes
A high quality pearl will have a lustrous, shiny surface, strong reflections, and a good contrast between its light and dark areas. Pearls come in a variety of colors. That colors are white, gray, black and yellow. The shapes of pearls can be round, baroque, symmetrical, or irregular. The most exquisite and expensive pearls are the sphere-like round pearls.
But still your pearls should have minimal blemishes on the surface such as pits, cracks, or discoloration. Necklaces with pearls can have single or double strands. The single strands usually have larger, more expensive pearls than the double strands. Pearls that appear completely flawless are usually fakes. Authentic pearl earrings should match in size and their look and feel.
How Durable is My Gemstone Jewellery?
First of all a note about the hardness and therefore relative durability of gemstones. To measure hardness, the jewellery industry uses the Mohs scale. This gem-trade standard, conceived by Friedrich Mohs in 1812, measures the ability of a gem or mineral to resist abrasion damage.
Diamond at 10 is the hardest whereas talc at 1 is the softest. Popular gemstones like amethyst and citrine register 7 whereas rubies and sapphires register 9. Most of us come off the beach on the first day with the 3 sís all achieved - rings caked in sand, sea-salt and suntan lotion. Nude sunbathing, as far as silver and gold jewellery is concerned, is a must! Remember also that sand will scratch the surface of precious metals.
