Sterling Silver and Semi-Precious Stone Necklaces

Sterling silver contains 92.5% pure silver content.  The remainder consists of other metals or alloys.  Most sterling silver jewelry has a marking of “925”. However, older and antique pieces may not be marked.

The item description will specify the stones that are in a necklace.  All stones are guaranteed genuine as described.

Care of Sterling Silver 

Most of our pieces have a protective coating so they will not tarnish.  If they do, it is best to use a silver polishing cloth to clean them.  If there are no stones, you can use whatever polish you use to clean your silver flatware.

 

Pearls   

We have many types of pearls:  e.g., round, oval, sea pearls, baroque, keishi.  We have pearls that range in size from 5mm to about 14mm in diameter.  Most of the round pearls are freshwater, cultured pearls.  A cultured pearl is one for which an “irritant” is introduced into an oyster and the nacre builds up around it.  The “irritant” can be a bead or a tiny piece of the flesh of another oyster.  The longer the pearl is left in the oyster, the larger it becomes.

We have some sea water pearls as well.  These are usually smaller in size.  Most Japanese pearls are sea water pearls.

The price of a pearl necklace depends on four things—the diameter of the pearls, the shape (i.e., the “roundness”), how well matched the pearls in the necklace are, and the luster.  For baroque pearls, the shape is usually more important than the size of the pearls.

Keishi pearls are natural pearls.  They are removed from an oyster and injected into a second oyster before they are later harvested.  Luster is important in Keishi pearls.

Most of our pearl necklaces are hand-knotted on silk thread.

Care of Pearls

Wipe clean with a damp cloth.  Be careful not to get the silk threads wet.  Pearls will pick up perfume scents, so it best not to spray perfume in the area in which your pearls will lay.

Genuine Pearls

How can you tell if a pearl is a genuine pearl?  Rub the pearl on your teeth.  If it feels “gritty”, the pearl is genuine. Mother of pearl beads feel perfectly smooth when rubbed on the teeth.

Mother-of-Pearl

We carry some mother-of-pearl necklaces.  These are clearly identified as such and are made from the material in the inside of the oyster shell.  They are organic material, unlike “Majorca Pearls” which are all synthetic. The mother-of-pearl beads are generally produced so they are perfectly round in shape, with no imperfections.  The look is very nice, and the price is usually less than for pearls.
