Mother Nature’s Work of Art
One of our designers once described a pearl to me as ‘mother nature’s work of art’. That description, in a nutshell, is perfectly accurate. No other gemstone seems to capture the essence of nature quite so beautifully. The popularity of pearl engagement rings is on the rise and innovative and modern designs featuring pearls can be found in a variety of settings and colours.
Pearl engagement rings and pearl jewellery have actually been prized for centuries. Pearls, even today, are known as the ‘stone of sincerity’ and are frequently given as tokens of love. They represent purity, honesty and wisdom and the wearer of a pearl engagement ring should, according to legend, be blessed with great fortune.
Cultured or Salt Water?
The pearls that we commonly see today are cultivated in controlled farms to create what is known as a ‘cultured pearl’. These pearls are just as beautiful as their natural counterparts, the saltwater pearl, but are usually a more regular round shape with a slightly different sheen. Saltwater pearls are still very rare and difficult to harvest. They have a higher chance of having a slightly irregular shape which in fact, to some people, adds to their appeal.
Pearls can actually be found in a rainbow of varying colours, but all still with that signature shimmering lustre. Delicate pinks and whites create a classically elegant pearl engagement ring that rivals any other style. However, many brides are now choosing the more striking and exotic looking chocolate coloured pearls or even black pearls.
Delicacy Calls For Extra Care
F and I agree that pearls are exceptionally beautiful and certainly stand out from the crowd. This unique stone does require some particular care and maintenance due to its somewhat delicate nature, but it is so worth it for the pleasure of owning one of these exquisitely lustrous and gleaming gems.
