5. Luster, shape and defect, which aspect should you consider when buying pearls?
If you are required to arrange them in sequence, then when the defects are in the “micro-defect” or “minimal micro-defect” range, the luster and shape are more important. Firstly, pearls itself are not flawless, even if there are no defects at all, it is hard to avoid natural growth lines.
Generally, slightly flawed pearls when worn under normal social distance, it is difficult for others to notice the flaws. If the pearls on the entire pearl chain have visible flaws, so if under direct sunlight, the effect will be greatly reduced.
6. Freshwater pearls are not as valuable as seawater pearls? Are cultured pearls not formed naturally?
The national standard does divide natural pearls and cultured pearls into two categories. Since Mr. Kokichi Mikimoto invented the cultured pearl technology in 1893, no matter freshwater pearls, Akoya, South Seas, and Tahiti, almost all freshwater pearls on the market are produced by artificial cultured pearl mussels, but the microscopic process of pearl formation is still large. It is given by nature and cannot be controlled by humans. If you must pursue natural pearls that are not subject to human intervention, they can only be seen on extremely expensive antique jewelry in museums and auction houses, and their value is not only based on appearance. It is due to the rarity of the pearls, and the added value would be the combination of design, craftsmanship, historical culture and other factors.[/vc_column_text]
7. If the pearls are not completely round or are having defects, can they be rounded back or polished off the flaws?
But pearl polishing is a normal process. It doesn’t mean to make the pearl more luster, yet it removes the dust and stains attached to the surface of the pearl, so that the pearl can restore its original luster.[/vc_column_text]
