Mabe pearls have an oval form. They grow on the inside surface of a valve. They are also called blister pearls or “blue pearls”. The mollusc which produces this kind of pearl is called Pteria Penquin which is translated as “golden oyster’s wing”. When an oyster reaches 13 cm in diameter, one or two hemispheres are implanted into the mantle of the mollusc. After the implantation 10-15 pearls are attached to the pearl-shell in one row through special holes. Then the pearls are cultured in the farm up to 14 months.
Akoya pearls are 2-9 mm in diameter. Oysters are collected when they reach 5-10 cm in diameter. Molluscs which produce this kind of pearls are called Pinctada fucada or Vulgaris. A bead is surgically implanted into the gonads of the mantle conjunctive tissues which serve as a “pearl bag”. After the procedure molluscs are controlled to be sure that the implantation went alright. The pearls of this kind are cultured for 8-24 months.
South Sea Pearls are the biggest of all the kinds of cultured pearls. They are known for their beautiful satin lustre and warm colors. A pearl has a size from 9 to 20 mm. Pinctada Maxima oyster which is used for the production of the pearls can reach 30 cm in diameter which allows to implant larger beads. Pearl shells are usually harvested after 2 years. In the farm oyster shells of different colors are cultured to get pearls of white, silver, pink, gold, cream color and any combination of these basic colors.
Amorn pearls have got deep and intensive lustre. You should view the pearls on the bright well-lit surface. The higher the quality of the pearl, the more the contrast between the brightest and dullest spot. Beside a play of colors you can also see a shine which comes from the inside.
It is normal for natural pearls to have some natural imperfections. Amorn has a strict control over the quality of the pearls’ surface. Natural defects should be limited to 30%, for necklaces this number should be not more than 10%.
The price of the pearl depends directly on its shape. Pearls of a round shape are of the highest price. Semi-round, oval and button pearls are less valuable.
Natural pearls usually have different colors and shades. Classical colors of pearls are white, gold and black.
Carefully arranged composition is the most important characteristic when choosing pearls to form a complete piece of jewelry. Maximum difference in pearl size is only 0.3 mm.
Double lock system
Amorn ensures a reliable locking system which has been tested successfully and simplifies the after-sales service. A hole is made in the pearl, a screw is set in the ring and then a joint-pin is attached in the hole. This way the ring and the pearl are strongly connected.
