How do you grade a pearl?

Pearl grading can be as simple or as complex as you wish to make it. The real beauty of a pearl is in the eye of the beholder. Here at Pearl Wholesaler we feel that simple is better and let the pearl speak for itself! We want to let you decide on the pearl that suits your personality. Pearl grading can be broken down into 5 factors: The Shape of the pearl, the Size of the pearl, the Colour of the pearl, the pearls Lustre and the Complexion of the pearls surface.

Pearls are produced by an animal and ultimately the quality of a pearl is dependent on that animal and the natural environment in which it grows. Choose Pearls by using the above grading system, however understand that whilst this grading system influences value, it should be only a guide when matching pearls to your personality. The ‘perfect’ pearl for you is not necessarily round, it does not have to be white and it certainly does not have to be flawless.

For this reason the images that you view on our site are pictures of the actual pearl taken at different angles to show the individual markings and qualities of each pearl. You are not looking at an example of the pearl that you will be taking home but real images of the pearl you will recieve. Our 100%  money back guarantee gives you confidence in the product that you receive. Good luck finding that ‘perfect’ pearl.
