BLACK PEARL

Pearl is the most ancient jewel and it was thought to be the most precious for many years. It has a hue that varies from white to black with shades of silver, cream, pink, champagne, (gold) green and blue.

What makes a pearl different from other jewels is the fact that it is organic matter obtained from living animals – oysters and mollusks. Its chemical composition includes calcium carbonate in small crystalline forms, which have been laid down in circular layers. Since it is a natural organic jewel, it may be found in different shapes with each form being unique. Just as if each diamond is different from the next one, each pearl has a minor variation in its shape. Its shape is the result of its nucleus and position inside the mollusk. Round pearls are the ones, which are most in demand and valued because they are uncommon and ‘natural’. When a person thinks of a pearl, a round pearl comes to mind. Together with natural pearls, there are also cultured pearls, which are cultivated from oysters and freshwater mussels. The value of a pearl is based on many factors like the type of pearl, its shine, shape, hue, nacre and size. Its shine reveals its quality; a superior quality pearl shines so much that you are able to see your reflection on it. Another quality is the nacre, which gives the pearl its hue and the brilliance of its luster. The most precious pearl is the one, which has a thicker nacre.

Pearls are the most ancient jewels and have been the most desired and most valued jewels since they were first found. They were cited in legends, texts and utilized in the artwork of numerous countries from Egypt to China and Greece. Their first use is dated about 5,200 years ago in Egypt. Samples of pearls could also be viewed in paintings and sculptures in ancient Egypt. In Chinese lobes and history books from around 4,000 years ago, they were mentions of freshwater pearls and that still stands as the definition of freshwater pearls. The oldest piece of pearl jewelry is a 2,700-year-old necklace, which was found in a Queen’s grave in ancient Persia. This is known as the Susa necklace and it contains three rows each with 72 pearls. Also known as the teardrops of the moon, the pearl is the June birthstone and the jewel for the zodiac sign Cancer.
