Tricks Buying First Pearls

First, you need to know the difference between natural and cultured or farmed pearls. Natural pearls are grown in the wild without any human interference while cultured pearls need humans to cultivate them. Natural pearls are extremely rare and much more expensive than their farmed cousins. Most pearls currently used in jewelry are cultured unless it explicitly states they are natural.

Six factors determine the value and price of pearl jewelry: size, luster, shape, color, surface, and match. The higher the quality of the pearls, the more valuable they are and, of course, the more expensive. If you need to decide whether to go for a higher quality or bigger sized pearls to fit in with your budget, go for higher quality.

Personal Style

It is important that you choose pearl jewelry that fits your personal style and suits your skin tone. Many women believe that your first pearls should be a classic white strand, which works for many women, but if that’s not your style, choose something you know you’re going to love wearing.

Where you want to wear the pearls- for work, formal events, or in a casual setting- will affect which kind of jewelry you choose.

The color you choose is a great way to show your personal style. Just remember that colors can limit the clothing choices. Classic, white pearls are versatile, can be dressed up or down, and can fit in with almost any outfit. Darker pearls such as black, silver, and chocolate can be exotic, bold, and dramatic. Softer colors like pink, peach, and lavender are fun, flirty and young – a perfect choice for spring and summer.

The shape you choose is also an important factor. There are many shapes available, ranging from perfectly round to drop, button, oval, and baroque pearls.

How to Care for Your Pearls

If you look after your pearls well, they can remain in good condition for a lifetime. Chemicals are not good for pearls and will eventually dull the pearls’ luster. Keep them away from perfume, makeup, and hairspray.

Wipe the pearls with a soft cloth after you wear them and store them separately from other jewelry to avoid scratching.

Tricks on Buying Your First Pearls

When choosing a retailer to buy from, keep these factors in mind:

The color of pearls may look different from a photo or inside a shop depending on the light. Choose a retailer with a return policy in place.

Select a retailer who specializes in pearl jewelry as other jewelers may not have the necessary knowledge to advise you.

Don’t pick pearl jewelry according to brands. High-quality pearls are available to retailers no matter their size. Branded jewelry may be more expensive just because of the brand name, not the quality.

Retailers who buy directly from the farmers can sell high-quality pearls at a much more affordable price.
