Some mistake about pearl

Pearl becomes more popular in the common life,more and more pepole want to chose some fashion pearl,but because lack of the knowledge about pearl ,some mistake occasiionly  made by them when decided to choose the pearls.

  The most frequenly mistake will make is : cultured pearl is not a real pearl.In fact the cultured  pearls is indeed real pearls, but not nature pearl. the pepole who make this mistake must think that only the nature pearl is reall pearls.  but now a day  the nature pearl is rare, and most real pearl are cultured. because the cultured pearl are made exactly the same way a natural pearl is in that a pearl oyster secretes the same mineral and protein around an irritant, so the cultured pearl is indeed a real peral. The difference is that in a cultured pearl, the irritant is introduced by man ,and nature pearls is irritanted nature.

The another frequenly mistake is that :Akoya Pearls  only product in japan.This mistake often make because of the term of the "japan akoya pearl". In fact the term  "Japanese Akoya Pearls" was often use in last century ,because in the time japanese has been the undisputed champion producer of Akoya pearls.Due to the fact that any given Akoya pearl necklace today almost certainly contains Chinese Akoya pearls, the JCK** has recently announced that the phrase "Japanese Akoya Pearls" is no longer an accurate industry term, and should not be used.The akoya pearl now is often the same of  salt water pearl, there can product anywhere especial in china.

Consider to saving the pearl ,mistake that  wearing pearls while sleep enhance their luster is often make.Contrary to this popular myth, the acidic oils and sweat in skin can actually discolor your pearls and damage their luster. however  after wearing them is a good  wipe down your pearls with   a drop of olive oil  on a soft cloth or chamois  .


Pearl choosing tips

 To choose a pearl,Iit is important to determine the difference between fine quality pearls and average pearls. The luster, nacre thickness and quality (the outer layer), color, surface perfection, shape, and size must be conside when select them.there are some tips here just can help you distinguishing quality  of  the pearl.


First luster is  important factors to notice,Luster is essentially the reflective quality or brilliance of the surface of the pearl nacre.Quality pearls will have a sharp contrast between the brightest area where direct light is hitting the pearls and the shaded area creating an illusion of a "ball within the pearl.", contrarily avage Pearls with low luster appear white or chalky.Check for luster by examining them  on a flat white surface, e.g. white cloth, paper or tray. under a gray or white light instead of away from the light and never under a black light which make you difficult to qualitify the pearl.Compare different pearls under same condition have a relative idea of what you want is  also a good idea.

Color and Overtones

Pearl color is also important.To check the color make sure they have not been dyed is most important.You can judge the color of pearls against a non-reflective white background. If possible you would look at the pearls under different types of light sources-daylight near a window, fluorescent, and incandescent (light bulbs) to check them .When you focus on one color too long to check them, your perception of it becomes distorted you'd better Look away from the pearls at other colors and objects for a while.

Surface Characteristics

Examine pearls' surface for blemishes. Although is best to check for most pearl characteristics on a light background, it is best to check for blemishes on a dark background. Check in both intense and diffused light. Chips.Gaps, or cracks in the pearl's surface are the must be avoid  , because these serious flaws can cause the pearl to break or peel.


When choosing pearls also consider shape.Indeed, perfectly round pearls are actually quite rare,Pearl experts generally divide pearl shapes into three broad categories:spherical,Symmetrical and baroque.Spherical shapes are perfectly round or nearly round and most desirable.Symmetrical shapes are are balanced and regular and desirable but usually less expensive than spherical pearls. Baroque pearls are irregularly shaped and often the least expensive.


Size should also be taken into consideration. Naturally, the larger the size of the pearl, the greater its value.But price jumps between pearl sizes are often uneven. As the size of Akoya pearls over 7  millimeters are much more costly and prices dramatically rise with each ? millimeter over 8 millimeters. South Sea and Tahitian pearls also have high increase in price when size is over 15 millimeters.

Pearl Matching

One more factor to consider in pearls is the precision in matching the pearl quality in a string of pearls. Pearl matching affects the value of the jewelry because when pearls are not matched properly it takes away from the appearance of the jewelry. that would be impossible! Nor does it even mean that all of the pearls in the piece are generally uniform in size, shape, and color. It basically means that the pearls "fit together" in a pleasing manner. For example, a long strand of pearls may have a large pearl in the center, with pearls which grow gradually smaller strung along either side ,or the pearls are all drilled in the center so they lay properly.

Return Policy

Other things to consider when purchasing pearls include finding out what the merchant's return policy is. the  30-day full refund policy like is very important.

A Glossary of Pearl Jewellery Terms

Akoya pearls

Pearls from the Akoya saltwater oyster which is the mainstay of the Japanese pearl industry. Now also farmed by China and other countries.

Baroque pearls

Irregular shaped pearls of all shapes and sizes, neither round nor symmetrical. The surface is usually uneven. Most are inexpensive, but some have come to be the centrepiece for very expensive pieces of jewellery.


A pearl necklace of more than three concentric strands.

Biwa pearl

Cultured freshwater pearls grown in Lake Biwa in Japan.

Black-lipped oyster

The oyster famous for the Tahitian pearl which is found in the South Pacific in and around Tahiti and French Polynesia.

Black pearls

A natural coloured dark pearl grown in the black-lipped oyster. The colour is black, light black/silvery or a dark grey, although other very dark colours such as the rarer peacock green are also referred to as black pearls. Natural colour black pearls are rare and most of the cheaper black pearls, especially freshwater, are dyed.


Little marks, bumps, scars or irregularities on a pearl’s surface that give a pearl strand its personality, although heavy marking will lower its value.

Blister pearls

In reality, a natural pearl which occurs when a parasite intrudes through the outer shell of a mollusc. The mollusc secretes nacre over the irritant, cementing it to the shell itself. Blister pearls are usually irregular in shape.

Blue pearl

A dark-coloured pearl whose colour derives from foreign contaminants in the nacre, or between the nacre and the shell bead nucleus. Typically, blue pearls are naturally coloured dark Akoya pearls, which may be blue or other dark colours.

Choker length

A pearl necklace 14 - 16 inches (35 - 40 cm) in length.


The type of oyster or mussel is a key determinant in colour. Different geographical areas have different molluscs which produce different colours.


The process whereby a mussel or oyster is seeded, cared for and harvested to produce a cultured pearl.

Cultured pearls

Pearls formed by the insertion of a piece of mantle tissue, with or without a nucleus, into the host oyster or mussel.

Dog collar

A choker length formed from multi-strands.

Freshwater pearls

Pearls predominantly flesh-nucleated typically in mussels in several countries around the world, notably China, Japan and the USA.

Gold-lipped oyster

These oysters produce beautiful light yellowish or golden pearls. They are found mostly around South East Asian countries such as Thailand, the Philippines and Indonesia.

Graduated strand

A strand of pearls starting with small pearls at one end and gradually getting bigger until the centre where the largest pearl will lie. The pearls then graduate back to the other end.

Half pearls

Whole pearls that have had one side removed to remove blemishes. If about three quarters of the pearl remains, it is known as a three-quarter pearl.

Imitation pearls

Pearls manufactured to look like natural or cultured pearls. Various types exist. Solid or hollow glass beads coated with pearl essence derived from fish scales are one type, whilst lacquer covered beads are another. Cheaper varieties are created from plastic.


This refers to the optical effect whereby prismatic colours, similar to the ones seen on oil films, can be seen. Iridescence is the play of lustrous colours, which may be like those of the rainbow or a subtle combination of colours such as pink, blue, green, and silver.

Keshi pearls

These are small roundish natural pearls formed naturally in the soft tissue of the mollusc during the cultivation process from small pieces of the mollusc’s own shell. The mollusc treats these pieces as irritants and coats them with nacre.


Small knots tied between each pearl in a strand to prevent them rubbing together and to avoid the loss of pearls if the necklace breaks.


The appearance/shininess of a pearl’s surface judged by its ability to reflect light. One of the most important factors in judging and pricing pearls.

Mabe pearls

Formed when a half-bead is cemented to the mollusc's inner shell. The mollusc covers the half bead with nacre and when the shell is cut off, the bead is exposed at the back. The bead is removed, the pearl cleaned (to prevent deterioration) and the remaining hole filled with paste, wax or sometimes with another bead and then covered with a mother-of-pearl backing. Mabe pearls must only be used in closed-back settings. Also referred to as a half-pearl or cultured blister pearl.


The part of a mollusc’s soft tissue that secretes nacre. This tissue is also used to nucleate and stimulate pearl formation in freshwater pearls.

The smooth, hard pearly lining on the interior of oyster and mollusc shells, famous for buttons and small decorative objects. It is the same substance as nacre which forms pearls.

Nacre (‘NAY-ker’)

The pearly substance secreted by the mantle of certain molluscs to form a pearl.

Natural pearls

Formed entirely by an act of nature and without any assistance from man. An irritant such as a parasite or other foreign object enters the body and is covered in concentric layers of nacre inside the mollusc.

Near round pearls

Close to round shape and slightly rounder than off-round shape.

Non-nucleated pearls

Typically refers to freshwater pearls whereby mantle tissue from another mollusc is inserted to stimulate pearl growth. Refers to tissue-nucleated pearls.

What is Mother of Pearl?

Mother of pearl is the common name for iridescent nacre, a blend of minerals that are secreted by oysters and other mollusks and deposited inside their shells, coating and protecting their bodies from parasites and foreign objects.

Nacre is the same substance that is deposited around an object that becomes lodged in the mollusk--either naturally or inserted by humans--to become a pearl;

Although pearls are popular today, some past cultures regarded colorful pieces of mother of pearl as more desirable decoration for jewelry and other objects.

Jewelry made from mother of pearl is in the group called organic jewelry, which includes all jewelry that originates from a living creature, plant or other living organism.

Mabe Pearls: Half Pearls with Whole Beauty

Loose mabe pearl

Mabe Pearls are quite different from what you might consider “normal” pearls. The reason for this stems from the way that mabe pearls are formed. Mabe pearls are considered to be “semi-spherical cultured pearls”. Instead of growing inside the body of the mollusk creature, as is the case with other pearls, mabe pearls grow against the inside shell.

This process causes mabe pearls to have a flat side, as opposed to being relatively spherical, or at least rounded like standard pearls. This also explains why mabe pearls are frequently called “half pearls”. Mabe pearls are most frequently produced within saltwater oysters within the regions of Japan, Indonesia, Australia, and French Polynesia.


Mabe pearls come in a wide range of beautiful colors, which span from light pinks, to more bluish shades. The unique nacre of the mabe oyster allows for hues that are quite brilliant and rainbow-like. Their brilliance is quite breathtaking at times, especially in the rarest color, which consists of pink with gold swirls. It is this type of color which brings the value to the mabe pearls, as well as their rare superiority in texture and luster. Though they are quite lovely to look at, they will not be as expensive or valuable as “round” pearls due to the flat side.mabe pearl clip earrings

To culture a mabe pearl, the process is different than culturing round pearls. It is accomplished by inserting the nucleus flush against the side of the mollusk – which is the Mabe pearl oyster called Pteria penguin – causing the oyster to make its nacre deposits over the nucleus, and against the inside of its shell, forming a semi-spherical pearl. The Mabe pearl oyster, also referred to as the penguin wing oyster – is what is used as the mother shell for Mabe pearls. These are highly distributed across the world’s tropical and semi-tropical seas, making them readily available to many pearl farmers at different ends of the globe. Most commonly, however, the highest quality, most beautiful mabe pearls come from the Amami Ohima Islands off the southern coast of Japan, at the species’ most northern reach of distribution.

Due to this one flattened side, mabe pearls become the ideal choice for jewelry such as earrings and rings which allow for a secure setting, and a concealed flat back.

The mabe pearl first reached its popularity in the end of the 19th century, and from that time until the mid 20th century, many different efforts were made to attempt to cultivate the mabe pearl – most of which were in vein. Many hearts were broken, and most tries were fruitless. However, some pearl farmers continued to persevere with their research, and finally established breeding techniques for the mabe pearl oyster in 1970, followed five years later by the mass production of cultured pearl harvests.

Today, the production of cultured mabe pearls has become quite stable, and the results are absolutely gorgeous. Depending on the desired size, 2 to 6 years are needed for each pearl. However, for those who enjoy the mabe pearl, it’s well worth the wait.

Jewelry Clasps and Connectors

Once you string up a bracelet or necklace , you need some way to connect both ends together. That’s when findings such as clasps and jump rings come in very handy. Some clasps are there for function only, with a subdued appearance that keeps them from overpowering the jewelry. Other clasps are bold and are an important part of the jewelry's overall design. I’ll take you through a step by step description of a few of the more popular jewelry clasps and connectors , but don’t stop here. Check your favorite bead shop or jewelry vendor web site to discover more wonderful clasp and connectors.

spring ring clasp Spring Ring Clasps


A spring ring clasp opens when you push backwards on a little lever that slides along a circular ring. Once the clasp is open you simply insert the chain or loop that's attached to the piece you're connecting into the open circle, then release the lever to return it to the closed position. There's a tiny spring inside the clasp that puts pressure on the mechanism to keep the spring ring shut until you decide to open it again.

Spring ring clasps are commonly used to secure necklaces, bracelets and anklets, but some people have a difficult time operating very tiny spring ring clasps by themselves. Clasps that attach to a good sized loop that you can handle easily--or to a rigid piece--are easier to handle.


lobster clasp Lobster Claw Clasps

Its name explains the general look of lobster claw clasps, but you can see in the photo that the look varies and can be fashioned to suit the jewelry the clasps are used to secure.

A lobster claw clasp has a tiny spring in its mechanism that keeps the arm closed until you push on the lever.

Lobster claws are secure clasps that are a popular for bracelets, necklaces and anklets. They're somewhat easier to open and close by yourself than spring ring clasps are.


push-in-box clasp

Box Clasps


Box clasps are two-piece clasps that open when you push down on the exterior lever of a wedge-shaped piece of metal, compressing it so that it slides out of the opening. Push it back in and it clicks into place.

Box clasps are easy to use, but often do not have as much strength as lobster claw clasps. Box clasps can be plain or decorative and you'll find them in a variety of shapes and sizes.


toggle clasp Toggle Clasps


Toggle clasps are two-piece clasps that are attached to opposite ends of a piece of jewelry. One section of the clasp is formed into a circle or other shape with an open center. The other half is a thick bar that attaches to the components at the other end. When you insert the "T" into the circle extends past the circle's edges to hold the jewelry in place.

Toggle clasps are widely used to secure bracelets and anklets, but jewelry artisans also incorporate them into their necklace designs. They are available in numerous sizes and designs. Toggle clasps are not as secure as clasps that have a lock-type closure!


Decorative Clasp Example Decorative Clasps


Some clasps play a major role in jewelry design, like the heart clasp used in the bracelet shown on this page.

cultured pear shape and type

Because pearls are natural organic substances, they can occur in a wide variety of shapes, many of which are quite unique and interesting. The round pearls you most commonly see are by no means the only shape in which pearls are found!

Indeed, perfectly round pearls are actually quite rare. This is because the eventual shape of the pearl is determined by a number of highly variable factors which occur inside the oyster as the pearl is developing. For example, the pearl often assumes the same shape as its nucleus (the irritant which was placed inside the oyster to initiate the formation of the pearl). If the nucleus is not perfectly round, the resulting pearl is likely to reflect this irregularity. In addition, the pearl's positioning within the oyster also plays a role in determining its shape. If the pearl develops against the shell, for example, it will become more flattened on that side.

Pearl experts generally divide pearl shapes into three broad categories, based on their overall characteristics:

round pearl

 Round pearl

Round pearls are perfectly spherical -- Round pearls are rarely perfect spheres unless they are of gem quality or imitation. The longer the pearl remains within the oyster or mussel, the more chance there is of it developing a different shape. Contrary to the images portrayed in films very large round pearls are uncommon - and very expensive. Even seawater pearls, which have a round shell bead as their nucleus, have a hard time keeping their shape as they grow. Increasing the size of bead increases the mortality rate of the oyster. Many of the largest, most beautiful pearls come from the South Seas


off round pearl


The term off-round is used to describe pearls which are 'roundish' to the eye but have a slightly oval or flattened shape. They can still have excellent qualities in terms of lustre or lack of blemish but being off-round makes them less expensive. Before the cultured pearl industry began in the early 1900's most natural wild pearls were off-round or baroque (a general term for an irregular shape). Off round pearls can provide excellent value for money.



oval pearl


Oval pearls are sometimes also known as rice pearls although this is a slightly misleading term. It comes from the early days of Chinese freshwater pearl production when large numbers of low quality pearls came onto the market and were derided as 'rice-crispies' after the cereal. Today, Chinese freshwater pearls can compete in quality with the world's best. Oval pearls come in a variety of sizes and colours. Sometimes they are formed when two pearls growing close to one another in the same mollusc join together.


button pearl


Many of these are button pearls, so-called because of their distinctive shape - round on one side and flat on the other. Button pearls are flattened to some degree, making them resemble a button or perhaps a disk rather than a perfect sphere. These pearls are often used in earrings, where the flattened side can be attached to the setting. Buttons are also categorized as symmetrical.



biwa pearlBIWA PEARLS

The term 'Biwa' derives from Lake Biwa - a large freshwater lake near Kyoto in Japan. This was once the focus of the Japanese freshwater pearl industry. In the 1980's pearl production there virtually ceased due to industrial pollution. Biwa became a generic name for all freshwater pearls regardless of their shape. Technically it is incorrect to call pearls Biwa pearls (like French fries or English muffins) unless they actually come from Lake Biwa. We use the term simply to identify the unique shape of these particular pearls. online jewelry store wholesale pearl strands& bead:Nugget freshwater pearls, Coin pearl strands; firecracker pearl;Blister pearls;  Biwa /stick pearlsSeed pearl beads
