Jewels with pearls, a timeless accessory
When it comes about jewelry that does not go out of fashion, obviously we talk about jewels with pearls, one of the most recognized gems worldwide due to its beauty and elegance. The pearls are stones that are extracted from oysters and are formed from a simple grain of sand or another particle that enters inside. The oyster begins to coat this particle with calcium carbonate and mother-of-pearl, until the pearls is obtained. And this process can take up to 10 years. This is the reason why not all the oysters produce pearls.
In some cases, since not all oysters have pearls, the process of creating cultured pearls is resorted to, which consists of intentionally introducing a particle or object into the oyster, so that it can do the work and create a beautiful pearl. But, despite this intervention, both pearls are also authentic, originating from an oyster. However, it can also be created jewelry with imitation pearls, which are not produced inside an oyster. And, if this is the case, to differentiate them, you can scratch the pearl a little with your nail and if it flakes off, it is not natural or cultivated.
