About Our Pearls
Akoya pearls are considered the classic pearl and are known for their wonderful luster. They’re high-quality and are on average larger, smoother, rounder, and more lustrous than Freshwater pearls. Colors generally range from cream, to silver-white (most common), to black (most rare). But there are also color overtones and iridescence reflected across a pearl’s surface, resulting in rose, silver, pink, purple, cream, and even a “mermaid” effect. Cultured pearls take years to form in a mollusk’s mantle. High-quality cultured pearls can command impressive prices, but we partner with the pearl farmers with very large quantity orders, so we are able to offer the best prices we know of! Akoya pearls range from about 6.0-8.5mm. If you’re LUCKY, you may find twin pearls in a single oyster!
Taking Care of Your Pearl Jewelry
It is recommended that you put your pearls on last when getting ready and make them the first thing you take off when you come home. Before putting your pearls away, wipe them with a soft cloth and store them separate from other jewelry to avoid scratching their tender surfaces. When cared for properly, pearls can last a lifetime. The best way to care for pearls is to wear them often as the body’s natural oils keep pearls lustrous.However, it’s important to keep them away from household chemicals including perfume, makeup and hairspray. Chemicals found in these common products can dull the luster of your pearls. Your sterling silver setting will tarnish over time as all sterling silver does. However, you can greatly extend the time it takes for tarnishing to occur by keeping your jewelry in a small plastic bag (provided) when not wearing. This prevents oxidation from occurring while sitting in your jewelry box.
