Taking Care of Your Pearls:
Mikimoto cultured pearls will last for generations with proper care. Cultured pearls should be kept away from chemicals, cosmetics, perspiration, and perfumes which may damage their appearance because they are organic. They should be the last thing you put on and the first thing you take off in order to protect your pearls from damage.
Judging The Pearl’s Quality:
Luster - it is the surface glow and deep mirror-like reflection of the light or "inner light" of a pearl. The mother-of-pearl quality in cultured pearls will improve the overall luster. All Mikimoto pearls radiate an exceptional luster.
Surface perfection - the less blemished the pearl, the higher its quality and value. Tiny marks found on the surface of a pearl are part of its natural texture like rare silk which is a part of its inherent nature.
Color - there is a wide spectrum of colors that can be found in pearls including green, silver, cream, blue, black, pink, and gold. But the most popular colors are white and pink rose because these hues flatter the widest range of skin tones.
Shape – There are many shapes that are available. But round pearls are truly the rarest and most valuable. There are also exotic shapes available and are used to create unique, exotic jewelry designs such as an oval button, teardrops and baroque.
Size - pearls are measured in diameter increments of millimeters (mm). It is more difficult to cultivate larger pearls as there is an increased likelihood the oyster will reject the larger implanted nucleus.
