Pearls are special jewels. Since ancient times, there have been documented records of how pearls are much sought-after as a priced possession. There was a time when pearls were so highly-priced that they were only reserved for nobles and royalty.
Pearls are unique because they are created by a living animal, the only jewel in existence to do so. The very existence of pearls is testament to the beauty of nature, and how nature can create something beautiful out of a seemingly different situation. Pearls are formed when an irritant, usually a small piece of shell, parasite or small track of sand, is lodged inside an oyster’s body. This causes the oyster to secrete nacre, a special substance that builds ups in layers until the pearl if formed. Thus, the formation of each and every pearl is distinctive, as each pearl grows inside an oyster shell. Each harvested pearl inside an oyster shell is the only one of its kind.
Nowadays, almost all pearls are cultivated on pearl beds, when an irritant is deliberately planted inside an oyster instead of entering the oyster by chance. Even if pearls are created through this method, each pearl that is formed inside the oyster still differ in size, shape, color, and texture. In fact, natural pearls are so rare these days, found in less than 1 out of 10,000 wild oysters. There are two types of culture pearls: saltwater or freshwater pearls.
