Treasure of the sea !!! Queen of the ocean !!! From the dawn of civilization pearls are dedicated to women. Over time they became the symbol of purity, strength, power, wealth and happiness.
Pearls have been known since antiquity, they have enchanted all women over time. It is the only classic piece of jewelry from generation to generation for 3,000 years. If a woman says that she does not like pearls, she certainly has not felt their velvety touch or no one has talked to her about them. It is as if there is a magic secret between them, pearls bring out their radiance and charm on the neck of women and vice versa.
Because nowhere does a pearl reveal its beauty as gracefully as on a woman’s naked skin, we would suggest that you wear them regularly so that they retain their radiance and true beauty.
Pearl as an organic material over time may show signs of deterioration on its surface but good care will keep it shiny.
A pearl that is not worn dies slowly, do not leave pearls in lockers for long periods of time, do not put pearl jewelry when you bathe, do not let them come in contact with cosmetics, perfumes, sprays, sweat and never wear them in direct contact with other jewelry or precious stones.
A good necklace should be tied with silk thread and knots between the pearls, and in small sizes there should be safety knots. To maintain their shine, gently clean them with a cotton cloth and change the thread from the pearl necklace regularly to authorized goldsmiths or workshops.

Shape – Size – Polish – Surface – Color
SHAPE: The most sought after pearl shape is the round one, but the perfect round pearls are rare and at the same time the most valuable.
SIZE: The size of pearls is measured in millimeters by measuring the smallest diameter. If all the other criteria (gloss, purity, shape and color) are the same, then the larger the pearl the more valuable it is.
POLISHING: Refers to the glossy reflection of the pearl surface, and is graded according to the brightness and reflectivity of the light. The better the crystallization of the pearly material the better the polishing of the pearl.
SURFACE: Refers to the “perfection” of the surface of the pearl. The purer the more valuable it is. The purity of the pearl depends on the size and number of spots or bumps on its surface.
