It is more important be informed in the different variations and choosing the right one for you. Blue Nile offer a wide selection of pearls and ensures each one meets high quality standards.
Color: The general color of a pearl is typically white, cream, yellow, pink, silver, or black and may be a hint of secondary color. The general color is apparent at a distance while the secondary color may only be visible upon closer examination.
Luster: Luster is the intense shine a pearl gives off due to its calcium carbonate crystals also known as nacre. Luster is closely tied to the number of layers nacre is present in a pearl which typically result in larger pearls tend to give off a brighter shine.
Size: Depending of what variation of pearls you seek, be it Akoya, Freshwater, South Sea or Tahitian, expect sizes to range from 3.0 to 13.0 mm.
Shape: Round pearl shape are consider highest quality. Akoya, Tahitian, and South Sea pearls have the tendency to be the roundest, while Freshwater pearls are a little off-round. Blue Nile offer the highest quality so you can have a peace of mind knowing you are getting superior goods.
Surface Markings: Nacre is applied over time and in multiple layers, bubbles and spots can appear in the process which give pearls an unappealing look. The highest quality and most sought after pearls are usually the ones with smoothest surface.
