    More Information

    Freshwater pearls are cultured in mussels in China, in colours of white or pastel pink, peach or lavender and in a variety of shapes.

    Pearl Size 8.5-9mm

    A round pearl is measured across its diameter in millimetres.

    For non-spherical, baroque and other shapes of pearls, both the length and width of the pearl is measured.

    The most popular Akoya and Freshwater pearl sizes for earrings and necklaces are between 7 and 9mm in diameter.

    South Sea and Tahitian pearls are typically worn between 9 and 11mm in diameter, or larger for more statement pieces.

    Pearls have a variety of shapes, with the classic round and drop shapes being the most popular to wear.

    The shape of the pearls used in our jewellery is graded in accordance with the GIA Pearl Description System. The table shows the different shapes that are possible.

    We will always disclose whether a pearl has been treated for colour.

    Orient The rainbow colours that are displayed just below the surface of a pearl, usually those of a baroque shape, as it is rotated
    Pearl Lustre Excellent

    The lustre of a pearl describes how light is reflected from a pearl's surface. The strength of a pearl's lustre is one of the most important qualities to consider.

    The pearls used in our jewellery are graded in accordance with the GIA Pearl Description System. The table describes the different strengths of lustre that are possible.

    Pearl Surface Clean

    Each pearl is unique and may often have small blemishes or irregularities on its surface.

    The presence of these surface characteristics may add to a pearl's individual beauty but, if significant, could suggest its durability might be affected.

    We grade the surface of the pearls in our jewellery with the GIA Pearl Description System. The table describes the different types of surface quality that are possible.

    Learn more about the different types and qualities of pearls in our Guide to Pearl Grading.

    Moderately Spotted Noticeable surface characteristics
    Heavily Spotted Obvious, possibly affecting durability
    Poor Dim and diffused
    Nacre Quality Acceptable

    Nacre is the unique layered material that gives a pearl its reflective and iridescent properties. A pearl's beauty and value may be determined by the thickness and crystal structure of its nacre.

    All our pearls are selected for having the highest grading of nacre quality (described as Acceptable) under the GIA Pearl Description System.

    The table describes the different types of nacre quality that are possible.

    Learn more about the different types and qualities of pearls in our Guide to Pearl Grading.
