Questions About Pearl Pearls
  • 1stDibs ExpertNovember 6, 2023
    Yes, some black pearls are real pearls. Genuine black pearls typically come from Tahiti, sourced from black-lip pearl oysters. Some jewelry features synthetic black pearls created in laboratories. Explore a selection of black pearl jewelry from some of the world's top dealers on 1stDibs.
  • 1stDibs ExpertNovember 6, 2023
    There isn't a hard-and-fast rule about whether you should wear pearl earrings with a pearl necklace. While pearl earrings can complement a pearl necklace, you're free to mix and match pieces as you see fit. For example, you might join a multi-strand statement necklace with a pair of simple gold hoops or diamond studs. A dramatic gemstone necklace can be balanced with a pair of understated pearl button earrings. On 1stDibs, shop a large assortment of pearl jewelry.
  • 1stDibs ExpertApril 5, 2022
    A pearl clasp is an opening and closing device that holds a necklace together - in this case, a pearl necklace. The clasp works by hooking one end of the necklace into the other end and locking in place. Shop a collection of expertly vetted jewelry from some of the world’s top sellers on 1stDibs.
  • 1stDibs ExpertMay 3, 2024
    Yes, there are freshwater pearls. Certain species of pearl-producing mollusks do live in bodies of freshwater. Among them are Hyriopsis cumingi and Hyriopsis schlegeli. Most freshwater pearls come from the United States and Japan. Shop a diverse assortment of antique, vintage and contemporary pearl jewelry on 1stDibs.
  • 1stDibs ExpertNovember 14, 2023
    Pearls are so special because they are rare in nature. They form only when something gets inside an oyster or mussel and causes irritation. The mollusk then secretes substances similar to those found on its shell. These harden around the foreign body to create a pearl. Only about one out of every 10,000 wild oysters will ever make a single pearl, and the vast majority of the pearls that occur naturally are too small to use in jewelry. On 1stDibs, find a diverse assortment of pearl jewelry.
  • 1stDibs ExpertDecember 4, 2023
    No one knows for sure where pearl earrings originated, but scholars have determined that they date back to ancient times. According to surviving records, the ancient Chinese often presented members of royal families with pearls as gifts. During the 1st century B.C., Julius Caesar passed a law stating that only members of the ruling class could wear pearl jewelry. Shop a large collection of pearl earrings on 1stDibs.
  • 1stDibs ExpertAugust 17, 2021

    Baroque pearls are pearls with an irregular, non-spherical shape. They are sometimes called Biwa baroque pearls because of their discovery in Lake Biwa, Japan.

    What black pearls symbolize is largely a matter of personal opinion. Some people associate them with mystery due to their color. Others believe they represent mental strength, wealth or freedom. You'll find a variety of black pearl jewelry on 1stDibs.
  • 1stDibs ExpertApril 5, 2022
    Yes. While the gem has always been a mainstay in jewelry, there was a boom in demand for pearl pieces in the 1950s. The style at the time was black-and-white-chic, and pearls were an excellent accompaniment to pieces like the classic little black dress. Shop a collection of expertly vetted pearl jewelry from some of the world’s top sellers on 1stDibs.
  • 1stDibs ExpertFebruary 22, 2021
    Because black pearls only form when sand is trapped in a specific type of oyster, the Tahitian black-lipped Pinctada, they are very rare. Black pearls occur once in every 10,000 pearls.
  • 1stDibs ExpertApril 5, 2022
    Yes, pearls are available in a gray hue. The most common color for pearls is white, off-white and gray, but pearls can also come in a range of soft pastels as well as black and chocolate brown. Shop a wide selection of pearl jewelry on 1stDibs.
  • 1stDibs ExpertApril 5, 2022
    Yes, real pearls can be on a strand with a clasp. The addition of a clasp has nothing to do with determining if the pearls are real or fake. The clasp is simply a design aspect for the piece of jewelry. Always purchase real pearls from a reputable seller to ensure authenticity. Shop a large collection of authentic pearl jewelry from some of the world’s top sellers on 1stDibs.
  • 1stDibs ExpertFebruary 22, 2021
    Although some Chanel jewelry contains real freshwater pearls, much of their costume jewelry is made from coated glass, though they are still high quality.
  • 1stDibs ExpertApril 5, 2022
    To tell if a pearl is real, examine it closely. Genuine pearls are reflective and lustrous, while fakes won't have reflective properties. A real pearl will be cool to the touch and warm up when worn. One test is the "tooth test," where you rub the pearl against your front teeth. If the texture is slightly rough, then it's a genuine pearl. Shop a collection of expertly-vetted pearl jewelry from some of the world's top sellers on 1stDibs.
  • 1stDibs ExpertApril 5, 2022
    Mabé pearls are less expensive than traditional pearls due to their unique dome-like shape and accessibility. Mabé pearls are desirable for jewelry designs meant to lay flat on the surface, like stud earrings or pendants, while still giving the appearance of pearls without the higher price point. Shop a selection of mabé pearl jewelry on 1stDibs.
  • 1stDibs ExpertMarch 22, 2022
