It takes about 2 years to grow an oyster that is able to give birth to a pearl and another 1,5 years at least for the pearl to form in its body. 3,5 years is the time to get a pearl of the smallest size, it may take up to 7 years to produce a bigger pearl. Only 3 % of the cultured oysters will produce a perfectly round pearl so valued in jewelry production. Patience and diligence must be the main qualities of a pearl farmer.

Everybody knows, what are the 4 Cs that define the value of a diamond: they are cut, color, carat and clarity. A similar classification is applied when grading pearls, but the criteria that affect the price are a bit more diverse.
The main criteria determining the value of a pearl are: size, shape, surface quality, luster and color.
Are pearls forever? Yes, they are if you follow some basic rules you can keep their luster last for generations.
Pearl is a gemstone of an organic origin. The fact that it’s born “in the wild” makes it a rather enduring material. However, for the same reason pearls require extra attention when it comes to cleaning, storage and everyday care.
