The usual color of a pearl is also termed as the body color. In general, typical pearl colors are white, cream, yellow, pink, silver, or black. A pearl can also have a hint of secondary color, or overtone, which is seen when light reflects off the pearl surface.
As far as jewelry industry is concerned, there is no standardized grading for pearls. At Iceberg, we ensures that each pearl meets our high quality standards. Moreover, you will find education related to each pearl type we offer and encourage you to learn more about the differing qualities in each.
Luster is the intense deep shine of the pearls. Such effect is created when light reflects off the many layers of tiny calcium carbonate crystals that compose the pearl. This substance is known as nacre. When selecting a pearl, consider that the bigger the pearl, the more nacre it contains, so it will also exhibit even more luster. Compare a 5mm Freshwater cultured pearl with a 10mm South Sea cultured pearl and the difference in the amount of nacre is obvious.
Sans doubt, we facilitates our customers the highest quality, rarest pearl shape – round. Shapes that are not spherical or even symmetrical are considered lower quality. Akoya, Tahitian, and South Sea pearls found in jewelry have a tendency to be the roundest, while Freshwater pearls can be oval or slightly off-round.
As a mollusk creates a pearl, the layers of nacre do not necessarily adhere smoothly. Often spots and bubbles can appear in the layering process. Pearls with the smoothest surfaces are envisaged as the highest-quality, most sought-after pearls. At Iceberg Diamond, we offer our customers a range of prices and pearls with a range of surface qualities.
The size of the pearl greatly depends on the type of pearl. Freshwater pearls range in size from about 3.0-7.0mm, Akoya pearls range from about 6.0-8.5mm, and South Sea and Tahitian pearls can reach sizes as large as 13mm.
