Natural pearls are very rare and difficult to find in nature. For that reason, most pearls sold today are cultured.
In order to create a cultured pearl, a tiny bead or irritant of some kind is implanted into the oyster. The oyster’s natural response is to protect itself from this “intruder”. Over time the oyster coats the bead or irritant with a substance that the oyster makes called nacre. Nacre is a combination of both minerals and proteins. It is the nacre that gives pearls their beautiful luster and color. The Japanese discovered a method for producing pearls by culturing approximately 100 years ago. Cultured pearls are not "fake" or artificial in any way. The method has several benefits in making pearls more readily available, including placement of a round foreign object to produce a more uniform round pearl There are many different types and colors of pearls on the market today which is why you may need some more information before making your final decision. Although very high-quality pearls can still be expensive, the price range of pearls makes them attainable to more than just the very wealthy. firstname.lastname@example.org
