Whether it is a formal occasion, or an outing with friends, you can always choose pearls to go one up in your game of looking an absolute delight with pearl jewellery. Interesting thing is that the pearls may look almost same when taken a vague look, but these are actually quite different from each other in size, shape, color. This difference results from the factors such as:

• Variety of the mollusk
• Culturing conditions
• Harvesting methods, and many others.

Types of pearls ruling the scene
