Pearl

Before the nineteenth century, people began to pay great attention to this precious stone, which became competing with diamonds. .
Nowadays obtaining natural pearls has become very difficult, because of the unfair harvest and pollution, and it has become more rare than it was before, there are many different types of pearls, but we will look in this article on the most beautiful and most famous among people.

Types of pearls

Akoya

This type of pearl comes to us from the oysters of Akoya, which has been present in the salty water that has existed for nearly a hundred years, and it is the classic type that all people know. People and jewelers are sold for these reasons.
Unlike fresh oysters found in freshwater, oyster oysters produce only one or two pearls in a single harvest, as Japan, China, Vietnam, Thailand and Australia raise oyster oysters on special pearl farms.
Another reason for people and merchants to buy Akoya pearls is its beautiful colors, which range from white to gray, with shades of green, or pink, and comes in very rare cases in blue with a shade of gray or pink.

Tahitian pearls

The Tahitian pearl, the pearl harvested from French Bolognese, is the only pearl that comes in gray to black, and varies from circular to oval, while the pie is very rare, but oval is more expensive.

Snail pearls

It is the newest natural pearl, and it is found in snails that live on the shores of California, and people began harvesting it recently, and it is available in many different forms, including small and large, and its colors range from cream to red orange.

Mero Miro Pearls

This type of pearl is non-shell, and has never been successfully harvested on commercial farms, and each grain has its own distinctive shape and color, so it is very difficult to counterfeit and cheat in its shape.

Pearl care

Pearl needs special care, as it is soft, brittle and sensitive against chemicals, especially acids, so cleaning with these materials should be avoided. Rather, just wipe the pearls with a cloth dampened in a little water after each use. It is preferable to keep it away from other gems with a bag of fabric.
