Wisdom Purchasing Pearls

By: Jeffrey M. Bertman Graduate GemologistThe big news concerning pearls is the fact that pearl lovers have more options than ever. While the classic white cultured pearl remains the standard, pearls in varying colors and shapes have become increasingly popular. Pearls in colors other than white and shapes other than round now account for about 70 percent of the market, according to the Cultured Pearl Association of America. Pearls are also relatively affordable considering that slightly off-round and pearshaped “baroque” pearls can cost considerably less than their perfectly round counterparts of similar quality. Each baroque pearl is also inherently unique, with each one being as different from another as snowflakes. Black pearls, in shades of gray and eggplant, are currently quite popular. We’ve all marveled at the dazzling luster of a pearl necklace or a set of pearl earrings, but if you’re going to buy pearl jewelry, you should understand the basics about pearls and pearl jewelry.
