What Is Pearl?
Foreign material inside a mussel can’t be expelled. To reduce irritation, the mollusk coats the intruder with the same secretion it uses for shell-building, nacre. A pearl is several layers of this nacre over the irritant.

The Best Pearls
Good pearls have thick overlapping layers of nacre. This can be tested by viewing its 'lustre'. Roll the pearl with a pen in good light – the best pearls will reflect the pen the most. A large pearl is only more valuable if it’s the same quality as a smaller one – the rounder the better. Being an organic gem, grooves, pits, or dents are expected.

Cultured Pearls
The least expensive cultured pearls today rival the most expensive natural pearls ever found. Cultured freshwater pearls occur in mussels for the same reason saltwater pearls occur in oysters. To cultivate a pearl, farmers slit the mussel and insert small pieces of live tissue from another mussel.

Pearls are said to bring positivity and help their wearer be kinder and psychologically healthy. They are also thought to ease depression and encourage travel.

What is Mother-of-Pearl?
Mother of pearl is the iridescent substance that forms the inner layer of the mollusk's shell.The mollusk forms it for protection, and as the pearl it’s composed of alternate layers of calcium carbonate and conchiolin. 

The shining, playful light of mother-of-pearl has attracted attention since ancient times. Today, it’s dyed every colour under the sun – creating attractive jewellery at affordable prices.
