Pearl origin & Development The birth of a pearl is truly a miraculous event. Unlike gemstones or precious metals that must be mined from the earth, pearls are grown by live oysters far below the surface of the sea. Gemstones must be cut and polished to bring out their beauty. But pearls need no such treatment to reveal their loveliness. They are born from oysters complete--with a shimmering iridescence, luster and soft inner glow unlike any other gem on earth.
Pearl come in two main categories: freshwater cultured and saltwater cultured pearls. Various types of pearls are the result of different oysters used, the environment in which they live, and different cultivation techniques used by the pearl farmers. Freshwater cultured pearls are grown in lakes and rivers, whereas saltwater cultured pearls are grown in bodies of saltwater such as bays.
Because of their delicate nature, special care must be taken for pearls.
Cosmetics, perfume and hair spray all contain chemicals that can dull the luster of a pearl. The natural acids contained in body oils and perspiration can damage pearls in the same way. It is best to put your pearls on prior applying makeup, perfume and hair spray.
