South Sea Pearls: Attractive White Pearls from Australia

Online Shopping
Nothing can make anyone look and feel more elegant than pearls. Pearls represent elegance, simplicity and beauty at its finest. It is often regarded as a symbol of wealth as well. Accessories made of pearls are coveted and could instantly make an outfit more sophisticated. There are a lot of different types of pearls, and the South Sea Pearl is one of the largest ones.

The South Sea Pearl usually grows up to 20mm, though the average size is 13 mm. It is commercially cultured and harvested in over 4 countries in the world, primarily in Australia. It comes from the “Pinctada maxima”, an oyster that can grow up to 12 inches in diameter. The Pinctada maxima is native to the South Seas that lie between the southern coast of China and the northern coast of Australia.

The Pinctada maxima has 2 varieties, the silver-lipped and the gold-lipped. They are distinct from each other due to the overtones of the pearls they produce. The silver-lipped oysters produce pearls with white, blue, silver or aqua overtones while the gold-lipped ones produce pearls with deep gold, champagne or cream overtones. Once produced, the pearls are generally just washed and buffed, removing residue and brining about their natural glow.

These attractive pearls from Australia grow large primarily due to the size of the Pinctada maxima. Since the oyster is large, it can also accept a relatively larger bead. The period for growth of the South Sea Pearl is also longer, since they require a minimum of 2 years to be harvested. This contributes to the larger size of the pearl. Other pearls only take 9-16 months to be harvested. It is also uncommon to get pearls from the South Seas that are round or near-round, only 10-30% will be of the desired results. This phenomenon contributes to the higher value of a South Sea Pearl necklace with round beads.

South Sea Pearls are thick, and range from 2 to 6 mm, while other pearls are around 0.35-0.7 only. They have a satin-like luster, which makes them unique and beautiful. They also have an array of colors: white, silver and gold. This range of colors is rare in other types of pearls.

Of course, with their size and beauty, it is no wonder they do not come cheap. Their prices start at a little over $1000, and necklaces of high-quality would range from $100000 to $300000. White South Sea Pearls are generally more expensive than the other colors.

Though there are other colors and other places where it can be harvested, the South Sea Pearl is commonly dubbed as the attractive white pearl from Australia. Since the pearls are primarily cultured in Australia, they often get attributed to the country. It is also in Australia where the white variety is commonly found. In other countries, such as the Philippines and Indonesia, the golden variety is more commonly cultured.

This type of pearl is very attractive and iridescent, making it look elegant and beautiful. Anyone who wears this pearl would instantly feel more attractive like the pearl itself.
