Pearls organically grow in a variety of shapes and sizes – ranging from circles to teardrops – but for Pearl Wedding Rings, the completely round pearl is the most sought after and valuable shape. Although, in modern times, there is a strong demand for baroque Pearl Earrings because of their unique individual shapes.
Black Pearl Wedding Rings
Black Pearl Wedding Rings have a variety of symbolic meanings across many cultures, but most popularly, they represent wisdom and everlasting love. Closely linked as symbols of eternal love, Black Pearls are popular choices for husband-and-wife Wedding Rings.
Natural Black Pearl Wedding Rings are more costly and intriguing than their off-white counterparts. The most popular Black Pearl is the Tahitian Pearl because they are one of the only varieties of Black Pearls which naturally cultivate as black since they grow inside the black-lipped oyster. Other varieties of Black Pearls – like Freshwater Pearls and Black Akoya Pearls – are typically dyed black.
Tahitian Pearls were formerly the world’s rarest and most costly harvested pearls. Although due to modern culturing, Tahitian Pearl Wedding Rings are now affordable for a far larger clientele.
An immaculate strand of Tahitian Black Pearls would have been considered a steal for $100,000 fifteen years ago. But now, these Tahitian Black Pearl Necklaces may be purchased for $2 up to $4000.
Do Pearl Wedding Rings Damage Easy?
A pearl is commonly set on a Wedding Ring with a peg setting for durability, which forms a V shape around the pearl lifting the gem above the ring. A small hole is drilled into the pearl, then a peg or pin is inserted in the gem, to keep the pearl in place, some glue is usually added to the peg and the hole.
On the Mohs scale of hardness, pearls have a grade of 2.5, meaning they are quite strong and resilient; however, they can be scratched if they come into contact with sharp objects or other gemstones.
Pearl care is important as pearls are organic gemstones that are vulnerable to acid, alkaline and extreme humidity. However, thanks to modern culturing, pearls are much more resilient than they once were, meaning your Pearl Wedding Ring will last a long time if you take adequate care.
Even though Pearl Wedding Rings are not as durable as diamonds or opals, they may be worn on a daily basis if sufficiently cared for. To preserve your pearl’s radiance, avoid letting the gem come into contact with cosmetics, hair spray, perfume, chemicals and cleaning agents.
If the radiance of your Pearl Wedding Ring appears to be diminishing, it is best to take your Pearl Wedding Ring to a specialist to be cleaned, rather than DIYing a cleaning regime. Before returning your Pearl Wedding Ring to the jewelry box, wipe gently with a soft cloth to prevent dirt from collecting and sweat from eroding the pearl nacre.
