Difference In Pearls

Natural Pearls

Natural Pearls form when an irritant - usually a parasite and not the proverbial grain of sand - works its way into an oyster, mussel, or clam. As a defense mechanism, a fluid is used to coat the irritant. Layer upon layer of this coating, called 'nacre', is deposited until a lustrous pearl is formed.


Cultured Pearls

The cultured pearl undergoes the same process. The only difference in pearls is that the irritant is a surgically implanted bead or piece of shell called Mother of Pearl. These 'seeds'  are most often formed from mussel shells. Quality cultured pearls require a sufficient amount of time - generally at least 3 years - for a thick layer of nacre to be deposited, resulting in a beautiful, gem-quality pearl.





Pearls are an organic gemstone and on the Mohs scale of mineral hardness they rate a 2.5 - 4.5 out of a possible 10 with 10 being the hardest stones. Due to the soft organic composition of the pearls nacre they require special consideration in order to ensure that their nacre and luster do not become damaged or dulled.  


The Golden Rule Of Pearl Care: "Last Thing On, First Thing Off"

  • Always use only jewelry cleaners that are labeled as safe for Pearls.


  • If spills or drips get on your pearls, give them a good soak in lukewarm water with gentle natural soap (not detergent). Rinse well and allow to dry wrapped in a cotton cloth, then wear them to return some oils from your skin.


  • Always remove your Pearls if you reapply hair spray, or put on perfume with a sprayer: both can damage Pearls.


  • Always store your Pearls wrapped in a soft cloth or pouch and protected from all abrasive objects.


  • Always remove Pearls before exercising or otherwise getting sweaty. (It's not the water or the salt, but the pH of sweat is not good for them.)




  • Never use toothbrushes, scouring pads or any type of abrasive material to clean your Pearls. Never use any "magic eraser" or other commercial cleaning pad, even those 'safe for non-stick' or otherwise presented as "gentle".



  • Never clean your pearls with anything containing chlorine bleach, vinegar or ammonia (including Windex). All will harm pearls. Avoid anything other that water and soap (not detergent).


  • Never steam clean your Pearls.



  • Never store your pearls in any type of plastic bag. Plastic can emit a chemical that will cause the surface of the Pearl to deteriorate.


  • Never leave your pearls around a direct source of heat such as a fireplace mantle, on top of a television set, or stove.
