March 31, 2011 by Emma

South sea pearls are amazing to work with for craftsmen and customers alike. Artisans find their roundness and smooth satiny luster a joy to work with, especially when it comes to new jewelry designs. Jewelry crafted from pearls is a great inspiration for both the wearers and the creators. On the other hand, adornments designed with these beauties bring a sense of achievement to the women that wear them. Women love their elegant and classy look. They come from white lipped oysters called pinctada maxima. These rounded albumen stones are a treat to look at and wear. They are extremely rare with a remarkable flawless body.

Another attribute which makes these pearls popular with designers is its color which can range between white to silver. They are large in size and found in the warm waters of Australia.

On the other hand golden south sea pearls are symbols of affluence, success and wellness. Because of their versatility in terms of shapes available, they are frequently utilized in the making of necklaces. As one of the most sought after sea gems, they are available in a variety of natural soft colors such as cream, champagne and other dark hues. Their radiance resembles like the sun’s rays at dusk; shimmering and vibrant and the pearls can be as large as 16mm in size.

White south sea pearls make perfect earrings because of their large size and bright lustrous radiance. Found in silver lipped oysters, they make delightful and contemporary ear embellishments. Its fuller body fits any type of ear giving the wearer that sensuous look. Generally set in white gold, the posts and push-on closures are also made from the same metal. They are like music to a woman’s ear.

Another ornament which is crafted from these south sea organic beauties are rings, which can be worn on any occasion, whether formal or informal. Like earrings, even the rings are set in gold metal, to enhance its luminance and elegant attributes. Popular colors include black and white, which completes the feminine look. A point to note here is, unlike rings made for casual wear, an engagement ring is generally interspersed with diamonds and other precious and semi precious stones.

Irrespective of the type of embellishment, these mystical organic gems have since time immemorial enchanted women from all classes of society.
