South Sea Pearls have a long and fascinating history of being the choice of luxury jewellery for elite royalty and socialites around the world. South Sea pearls are large in size and have a stunningly beautiful lustre, making them the perfect addition to any fine jewellery collection. For those who like to differentiate themselves and stand out from the crowd, South Sea Pearls are the perfect choice.
South Sea Pearls can trace their origin back to the waters of the South Pacific Ocean, located near Australia, Indonesia, and the Philippines. South Sea pearls are considered to be the most exotic of the cultured pearl species, due to their size, thick nacre and unique creamy white hues. They are formed by silverlust oysters and are typically one to two times larger than Akoya cultured pearls.
South Sea Pearls come in a variety of colours including golden, pink, silver, and white. The colour of the South Sea pearl is primarily determined by the Oyster’s particular environment. However, strong colour can be achieved through artificial colouration to produce unique shades. Natural colouration can range in hues from white, silver, pink, or yellow to gold and the rare Black South Sea Pearl.
They come in two distinct shapes – round and baroque. Round South Sea pearls are formed by the silverlust oysters due to the layers of nacre. Baroque pearls are formed when an irritant enters the oyster and the Oyster is unable to form a round pearl.
South Sea Pearls are typically priced by size and quality. As a rule of thumb, the larger the South Sea pearl, the more valuable it is. Pearl size is measured using millimetres and is determined by how wide the pearl is. The most exclusive type of South Sea Pearl is the perfectly round pearl, which has the finest lustre and the greatest market value.
South Sea Pearls are perfect for those looking for high quality jewellery pieces or special occasions such as weddings and anniversaries. South Sea Pearls are used for making south sea pearl pendants, necklaces, earrings, bracelets, and rings. These luxurious jewels are the perfect addition to any ensemble and perfect for all occasions; from everyday wear to more formal occasions.
When shopping for a South Sea Pearl the buyer should keep in mind the 4 C’s – Colour, Clarity, Cut, and Carat. Colour affects the price of the pearl, while carat determines the size of the pearl. The clarity of the pearl helps to determine both the value and the beauty of the pearl.
The cost of South Sea pearls per carat is typically more than double that of Akoya cultured pearls. South Sea Pearls range from $200 to as much as $1000 per carat, depending on size, shape, colour and the level of lustre.
South Sea Pearls are prized for their size, shine, and colours. They are a timeless symbol of elegance and sophistication, perfect for those who want to make a lasting impression. Whether looking for a subtle piece of jewellery or a statement accessory, South Sea Pearls are sure to make the occasion unforgettable.
