Valuable items and products are often very sought after for those who can afford some of the nicer and finer things in life, despite the prices that they may cost at times. One of the things that has become a highly prized item is that of the jewels of pearls, and the ones that are largest and highest quality tend to go for the top price among those who are pearl collectors and enthusiasts of the valuable item.
- The simplest division of pearl types is between organic, that is nature-made pearls and pearls that are cultured, or synthetically made.
- The agent that causes a mollusk to begin the pearl-creating process is surgically implanted when it comes to creating cultured pearls.
- The final results, whether implanted or occurring naturally, are so similar that an expert must use an x-ray to ascertain whether a pearl is natural or cultured.
“Even today pearls still hold their value due to the rarity of ‘mother nature’ creating this form of jewelry.”
