Shop By Pearl Type

Freshwater Pearls

Freshwater pearls are one of the most affordable and common types of pearls used by jewelry designers for their whimsical shapes, wide range of sizes and natural pastel colors, including lavender, pink, and every shade in between.

Akoya Pearls

Best known for their use in classic pearl necklaces, Akoya pearls are nearly identical in size, shape, color and quality. These perfectly round, neutral-colored gemstones are formed in “akoya” oysters in Japan and China and considered the oldest and most abundant type of saltwater pearl.

South Sea Pearls

South Sea pearls are a true gift from the sea and typically found off the shores of Australia. They’re exceptionally large size, around 8-20mm, and luxurious luster from optic white to a deep, honey gold makes them the rarest and most scarce of all pearl types.

Mother of Pearl

Mother of Pearl is the common name for the “nacre” coating of a pearl, an organic mixture of minerals secreted by oysters that form the gemstone. Mother of Pearl showcases the mystery and magic of the ocean with its iridescent shine and mesmerizing beauty.

Tahitian Pearls

Tahitian pearls have a distinctive, dark body with a mirror-like luster and colors ranging from light creamy white and grey, to regal greens, iridescent peacock and deep black. They are considered among the most sought-after pearls in the world due to their large size and value.
