Price & Quality

The price of pearls varies based on their quality and characteristics. Factors such as type, color, surface perfection, luster, and shape determine the quality of a pearl, ultimately influencing its price. Additionally, the availability and demand for specific types and colors contribute to the variations in the global market price of pearls.

Origin: Pearls can be classified into two types – natural pearls, which are formed naturally, and cultured pearls, which are created through manual processes. Freshwater pearls are the cheapest option, costing around Rs 100 per carat, but they hold no astrological significance. Natural pearls are highly valued due to their rarity and are priced around 10 times more than polished pearls. Among the different origin varieties, Basra pearls hold significant value due to their traditional importance. Unusual types like Tahitian pearls and Mabe pearls may also have a high value in the gem market due to their beauty and uniqueness.

Shape: Finding a perfectly round pearl is extremely challenging, making such pearls more valuable. Pearls with ornate shapes are more readily available and comparatively cheaper.

Quality: Pearls with fewer and shorter flaws command higher prices. Secondary flaws do not significantly impact the value of pearls due to their natural composition. Pearls with a dazzling brilliance are considered more valuable, while dull and opaque pearls are priced lower.

Color: White pearls with a rosy overtone tend to have higher prices. Creamy golden pearls from the sea or dark exotic Tahitian black pearls are also priced on the higher side due to their distinct colors. Pearls with yellowish or greenish overtones may have a lower overall cost.

Carat Weight: The size of a pearl greatly affects its price per carat. Larger pearls are more expensive compared to smaller pearls, as they require more time to form. Therefore, bigger pearls command higher prices.

Currently, the cost of natural pearls in Indian rupees starts from Rs 1,000 per carat (approximately $15) and can go up to Rs 2 lakh per carat (approximately $3,075) and beyond.

Care & Cleaning

Pearls are delicate gemstones that require proper care and cleaning to maintain their luster for years. When purchasing pearls, choose ones with thick nacre, as this will help them withstand wear over time.

It is important to keep pearls away from household chemicals such as hairspray, cosmetics, perfume, alcohol, and other harsh chemicals. These substances can cause blemishes, stains, and dullness in their luster. To prevent such effects, pearls should be the last item you put on when dressing and the first item you remove after returning home.

Pearls contain a natural substance called conchiolin. Over time, this material can dry out, and high temperatures can damage it. Additionally, water can contain acids that may dissolve the aragonite crystals that form the layers of nacre. Therefore, it is advisable to gently wash and dry your natural pearl jewelry after wearing it.

When cleaning cultured pearls, use only very mild, soapy water and nothing else. Wipe them gently with a soft cloth before storing them.
