If you would like to include natural pearls in your inventory, you don’t have to pay millions or even thousands of dollars for them—but expect to pay a lot more than you would for cultured pearls of the same quality, size, and shape.
The pearl is among the oldest known gems of our world. Historically, they were considered divine gifts, rich with love and royalty. Kings and crowns harboured natural pearls as a sign of power, purity, and wealth—almost as though the gems would bring prosperity and long life to those who possessed them.
Combining cultured pearls with coloured gems offers many benefits. It not only allows jewellers to make one-of-a-kind pieces and expand their jewellery lines, but also helps them add contrast to their coloured gem jewellery while making it more affordable.
