Ayoka Pearl

Historically, pearls have been used as an adornment for centuries. They were one of the favorite gem materials of the Roman Empire. Later, in Tudor England, the 1500s were known as the pearl age. Pearls are unique as they are the only gems from living sea creatures and require no faceting or polishing to reveal their natural beauty. Akoya are popular pearls that are farmed mostly along the coasts of China and Japan. Akoya pearls usually have a high luster, near-perfect roundness and high quality. White and cream are the most-requested colors, but many natural and treated colors are available, including black.

The surface of a pearl can chip and scratch away rather easily, and the luster of pearls can quickly be dulled by solvents, household cleaners, alcohol, cosmetics, and chlorine. To maintain your pearls’ beauty, bring them in to your local Helzberg Diamonds store for a complimentary cleaning and inspection. You can also care for your pearls at home by wiping them with a soft cloth before putting them away, and storing them separately from other jewelry to avoid scraping away the tender outer coating. If you're careful, you can preserve a pearl's beauty for ages.
