WHY IS THERE A SHOT GLASS OF WATER IN A PEARL JEWELRY SHOWCASE?

Our customers and friends often ask us, why there is a small glass of water displayed in every showcase next to the pearl strands, necklaces, earrings, bracelets and other pearl jewelry. The reason is that the pearls are gemstones of organic origin and they need to be stored at a certain level of humidity. It is important especially in rooms with air-conditioning that is known for making the air dry. For the same reason, it is not recommended to keep your pearls in a safe box for a long time, because like all living creatures they like fresh air and hydration. If you have a pearl, don’t store it – wear it!

We recently discussed the differences between saltwater and freshwater pearls. However, the world of ocean “periculture” is simply fascinating. There are three major types of saltwater cultured pearls, Akoya, Tahitian, and South Sea. These share many of the same characteristics but, as is the case with natural pearls, each can look vastly different. This is especially true because each is sourced from a different species of oceanic oyster that can only grow one pearl at a time. Without further ado, here’s what you need to know about the different types of saltwater pearls.
