Pearls are unique among gemstones in that they are natural, organic products of living creatures, and they have different grading standards.
The future of pearl farming lies in genetic selection, which can create faster growing oysters, resistance to diseases and production of higher quality pearls.
Pearl specialists use 7 value factors to grade and appraise pearls. These are: Nacre Quality, Luster, Surface Quality, Size, Shape, Origin and Color/Overtone Strength.
