ORIENT & LUSTER

One of the most important criterias for grading your pearl is the level of orient and luster your pearl radiates. Pearls of the highest quality have a reflective mirror-like effect allowing you to see deeply into their depths, as clear as crystal. Pearls radiating a dull or tarnished orient are lower quality.
Luster is the finish or polish of a pearl. Quality pearls should all have a natural sheen to them.

Pearl Care

The pearls true element…the ocean
If the lagoons of Tahiti and her islands are too far, occasionally bathe your pearls in salted water and gloss with a bit of olive oil and a soft cloth.
  • Store your pearls in the Anapa pearl pouch and protect them from gold or diamond jewelry, as these can scratch your pearls.
  • Perfume, cosmetics and hair spray should be applied before wearing your pearls. Never wear your pearls in a chlorinated pool.
  • Above all, wear your pearls; your natural oils keep them lustrous.
