Fresh Water Cultured White Baroque Pearls 8mm 38cm String
All of our Pearls have a 100% Authenticity Guarantee and will add a show-stopping decadence to your makes!
This is a stunning strand of mantle-tissue nucleated White Baroque Pearls which have the most lovely lustre and a degree of uniformity in their shape. At only £7 these are an absolute steal and we do not envisage them being in stock very long!
Baroque is the term used for irregular shaped pearls but at Chalmers Gems, we work directly with a pearl farmer and they very kindly make all of our strands as uniform as possible. However, we love the variation in each strand as it makes for completely unique jewellery and is ideal for any Jewellery Maker.
Marie’s most recent visit to a Pearl farm last year (before any restrictions) resulted in the most incredible first-hand insights into the farming of cultured pearls, which in turn has translated into our wonderful Pearl Category.
Where gemstones form as minerals underground, pearls are organic; they form within the soft tissues of a living creature; a mollusc.
The difference between natural and cultured pearls is most simply described as cultured pearls are given a helping hand by way of a mantle inclusion. 90% of today’s Pearl market is for cultured pearls.
Once the Pearls have been harvested, they go to market for sale. As buyers we all need to be aware that there is a mass flood of fake, cheap imports and need to be careful where we buy our Pearls from.
At Chalmers Gems we 100% guarantee the authenticity of our Pearls and only procure Pearls after carefully assessing the merits of all of our suppliers and select the very best strings at the very best value.
Pearls are an organic material and will vary in size and shape and may differ from the images shown.
