Which colour pearls are most expensive?

The question of which colour pearls are most expensive is actually determined more by the type of pearl.

The most expensive type of pearl is South Sea Pearls, typically found in the southern Pacific Ocean and grown in a large saltwater oyster. The colour of South Sea Pearls can be a stunning Gold or White. A large Golden South Sea Pearl necklace, with perfect pearls of high lustre can cost tens of thousands of pounds. Given the costs we only sell South Sea Pearls to bespoke order. Though recently we did add some South Sea Shell Pearl Pendants to our range, which are large, beautiful and very affordable as Shell Pearls are created from the inner lining of Oyster Shells (also known as Mother of Pearl) and then shaped, dyed, and coated with lustrous pearl nacre.

Next in expense come Tahitian Pearls, which are the only natural Black Pearls, with iridescent tones of green, grey and dark purple. These pearls are slightly smaller than South Sea Pearls, though reaching sizes of up to 14mm can still be quite large. A large Tahitian Pearl Necklace can cost up to £20,000 for high lustre pearls, and again we only sell Tahitian Pearls to bespoke order.

Akoya Pearl earrings

Akoya Pearls are a cultured saltwater pearl and can be farmed in the natural pearl colours of white, shades of pink peach and lavender. The pearl size for Akoya Pearls is smaller than that of South Sea and Tahitian Pearls and Akoya Pearls are usually farmed to up to 10mm in size. As with any pearl the price increases with size, as the time take to culture the pearl increases and with time and size the likelihood of creating a perfectly round pearl with a perfect lustrous surface decreases.

Freshwater Cultured Pearls have increased in quality over recent decades, and in our view only a pearl expert can spot the difference between a very high-quality Freshwater Pearl and an Akoya Pearl. The natural pearl colours of white, pink peach and lavender can be cultured. Pearl size can reach 12mm, however the recently introduced process of nucleating pearls with a bead, known as Ming Pearls or Edison Pearls, has meant that sizes of these nucleated cultured pearls can reach up to 16mm!

It is possible to get Freshwater Cultured Pearls in a range of colours from Red Pearls to Green Pearls though these colours are achieved by dyeing. Black Fresh Water Cultured Pearls are created by heating, or dyeing and often have green, grey, purple tones.

Pearl Pendant or Single Pearl Necklace?

What do you call them, a Pearl Pendant or Single Pearl Necklace? We struggle with this as it seems people use both terms to describe pearls on silver chains. One thing we do have clarity on is that they are becoming increasingly popular, as the fashion for simple elegance is growing and timeless.

Pearl Pendants

As we categorise items on our website we’ve chosen to list items that drop from a necklace chain as a Pearl Pendant, whereas a single pearl, or cluster of pearls integrated onto the chain as a Single Pearl Necklace.

Single Pearl Necklace

With summer approaching fashions become more casual and a Pearl Pendant, or Single Pearl Necklace, becomes the perfect jewellery accessory. We love these Coin Pearl Pendants in beautiful pastel shades, which hang on a simple Silver Necklace chain.

A Pearl Pendant has so many uses, they make a great gift as the simple elegance makes it an easy fashion choice and you don’t have to worry about sizing as an 18″ necklace chain suits most women. We often see simple Pearl Pendants used as Bridesmaid Jewellery and we’ve helped many brides to select matching items for their Bridesmaids and worked to their budgets. As we approach summer we always see a rise in Pearl sales in late May, as the June Birthstone is a Pearl, and a Pearl Pendant or Single Pearl Necklace makes a great June Birthstone Gift.

Mothers Day Presents

Mothers Day Gifts

Mothers Day has been celebrated in the UK since the 16th century where a Mothering Sunday was celebrated on the 4th Sunday of Lent. Following the Church Service to honor the Virgin Mary, children paid tribute to their own mothers with gifts and flowers. However by the 19th Century this custom had died out and the impetus for Mothers Day in it’s current form came from the US where an official national Mothers Day was signed off by President Woodrow Wilson in 1914, following a long campaign by Anne Jarvis. The influx of US Servicemen into the UK in World War 2 saw the British once again adopt the custom of celebrating Mothers Day.

Pearl Jewellery is perfect for Mothers Day Presents , and the ability to purchase your gift online and have it dispatched in gift packaging, with free delivery, takes all of the pain out of selecting a sending your gift.
