The Secrets to Buying Pearls

March 28, 2014 by Melissa

When you’re buying pearl jewelry for someone, you need to consider a few basic things. Price, quality, and the design of the jewelry are primary considerations. You also need to consider the tastes of the person for whom you’re buying.

Consider a simple situation like buying pearl earrings, for example. You will find that:

  • Individual tastes and styles vary
  • Pearl earrings come in a bewildering range of designs
  • There are multiple types and colors of pearls
  • Pearl quality really does matter. You think that you can’t go wrong if you buy Akoya pearls, but what about the other types of pearls?

If you’re getting the impression at this stage that you may need to do a bit of research about your purchasing, you’re absolutely right.

Researching your pearls is actually quite a bit easier than it might seem from the above range of issues. You can research pearl prices, designs, and pearl quality online and see for yourself the range of options available.

It’s a very good idea to start with our store first. We have a full range of different types of pearl jewelry, and excellent prices which you can use as a benchmark.

To learn more about the pearls on our site, you should search:

  • The type of jewelry – If you’re looking for a pearl necklace, obviously you need to explore pearl necklaces, but also look at the range of designs. Not all pearl necklaces are simple strings of pearls. There are many different types of designs, and many of these designs have specific types of pearls like the spectacular freshwater and Tahitian pearl varieties. These pearls often aren’t round, white, or anything that you would expect. You will find that pearl shopping can be fun, too.
    • Price ranges – This can be a real problem, but the good news is that you will be able to find a good spread of price ranges over any particular type of pearl jewelry.

Just one more thing, but it’s very important – Don’t guess! If you need to know more about a specific item, or need help purchasing, you can always ask for help. You can also ask friends for assistance and advice. Also consider customized pearl jewelry as another purchasing option, since that is a gift you can be sure that they don’t have yet.
