Culturing pearls is not a black and white issue
by: YVonne Hammouda-Eyre

Good morning

what a catch, three strands of golden pearls! The Gold-lipped P. maxima in the Philippine waters creates on rare occasions, bright yellow or "golden" pearls. Before the 1900s, these colors were not considered desirable in many markets and most farmers tried to avoid them (R. Torrey, pers.comm., 2007).

The push to create a market and consumer acceptance of golden pearls served as a catalyst for the entry of other fancy colored pearls, such as "black pearls" which are mainly shades of green and gray. If they are genuine "golden pearls" you are very lucky indeed.

They should be examined by a pearl expert. In the meantime, care should be taken when wearing them; avoid contact with perfume, body oils and body creams, which are abrasive to the delicate skin of a pearl.

For further assistance, please feel free to contact.

Best Wishes,
Yvonne
