The Lowdown on Wedding Pearl Jewellery

Wedding pearl jewellery can be a beautiful and refined way to add a classic touch to an outfit. It is also the perfect gift for a 30th Wedding anniversary, as the 30th wedding anniversary is traditionally known as the Pearl Wedding Anniversary. Pearls can be expensive as they are very delicate and natural pearls are relatively uncommon and should always be treated with respect. They scratch very easily and are highly susceptible to even the weakest acidic solutions, so extreme care must always be taken when cleaning them.

My Pearls are formed inside the shells of shellfish as a defence against potentially dangerous foreign bodies. The mollusc creates what is known as a pearl sac around the irritant, to isolate it. It will then deposit successive layers of calcium carbonate and conchiolin into the pearl sac, forming around the foreign body which act as a form of protection. Although this foreign body or irritant can be something as big as a grain of sand, the mollusc can also create pearl sacs to defend themselves against parasites or other organic materials. Because this process is completely natural and the foreign bodies can be different shapes, it is very rare to find natural pearls that are perfectly round. Which means that naturally round pearl jewellery items are very expensive to buy!

It is possible to farm pearls by artificially introducing foreign bodies into the shells of shellfish. The foreign body is often a special type of spherical bead, which will encourage the formation of a spherical pearl. These pearls are often traded under the name Akoya, Tahitian or South Sea Pearls. Cultured pearl is far less expensive to buy than one made from natural pearls, but items are still very beautiful. If you are not sure whether your pearl jewellery is natural or cultured, you can get it examined by an expert, who should be able to identify it via a series of tests. X-rays of the jewellery will also reveal whether the pearl was created using a nucleus bead.

Natural pearls have iridescence similar to seashells and butterfly wings; the colours appear to change, depending on the angle which you view them from. The iridescence and luster of pearls come from the unique layered structure, and every natural pearl will be different; the thinner and more numerous the layers, the finer the shine of the pearl. Overlapping layers break up the light that falls onto the surface and reflects back different colours. This gives pearl jewellery a beautiful sheen.

Wedding pearl jewellery is sure to add a touch of class and elegance to your wedding. These precious and unforgettable stones have been a popular choice for brides throughout time. Sometimes a lucky bride will be able to wear pearls that were passed down through her family. Whatever the motivation, pearls are an excellent choice for any wedding ceremony.

Pearl jewellery is one of the most classic, sophisticated and elegant pieces of jewellery that woman can have. Nowadays, so many types of pearl jewellery are in the market like pearl necklaces, pearl bracelets, and pearl earrings. Pearl jewellery worn alongside a black dress will look elegant and smart as well. Moreover, pearl sets will never let you down and will look seriously smart. Smart and classic doesn't mean boring. With so many classic looks, pearl jewellery is wonderfully versatile and can be worn in different patterns and styles. Pearls these days are also combined with platinum and diamonds to give the entire set a decent royal look.
