South 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.
White and silver lipped oysters birth pearls that are mainly white in colour with a range of overtones from silver to pale pink, whereas gold lipped oysters will create pearls that go from a light gold hue to a deep orange gold hue.
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.
The nacre can start from 1mm and is usually 2.5mm thick. The thicker the nacre is, the longer the pearls will last, and usually the better their lustre will be.
