Sout Sea pearls are produced in White lipped, Silver lipped and Gold lipped oysters that inhabit the waters of Australia, New Guinea, the Philippines, Indonesia and Burma.
South Sea pearls are mainly 9-16mm in diameter although they can be well over 20mm.
South Sea pearls are found in all shades of white from very pure white through pale pink to golden tones.
Always choose the pearls with the deepest lustre within the budget set, if necessary compromising on size and surface perfection, as it is the lustre which will light up the wearer’s face and will therefore be most flattering. All the pearls we use in Coleman Douglas Pearls jewellery are individually chosen for their lustre.
Akoya pearls usually have a good 0.5mm nacre coating. The thicker the nacre is, the longer the pearls will last, and usually the better their lustre will be.
