Questions About Strand Of Pearls
  • 1stDibs ExpertNovember 8, 2023
    You can wear many kinds of earrings with a strand of pearls. Create a unified look by opting for pearl earrings like studs, clusters and drops. A pair of hoop earrings can also complement pearls, as can more dramatic dangle earrings set with gemstones. When choosing earrings, consider the occasion. Bolder, larger earrings tend to be more appropriate for night and special events. Explore a wide variety of earrings on 1stDibs.
  • 1stDibs ExpertNovember 27, 2023

The royal tradition of wearing pearls as mourning jewelry traces back to Queen Victoria. On 1stDibs, find a large selection of pearl necklaces.

  • 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.

  • 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.

Shop a collection of expertly vetted pearl jewelry from some of the world’s top sellers on 1stDibs.

    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, 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
