NATURAL OR CULTURED PEARLS

Pearls, natural or cultured, are formed when a mollusk produces layers of nacre around some type of irritant inside its shell. In natural pearls, the irritant may be another organism from the water. In cultured pearls, a mother-of-pearl bead or a piece of tissue is inserted (by man) into the mollusk to start the process.

For both, the quality of the nacre dictates the quality of the luster, or shine of the pearl, which is very important to its beauty and its value. The surface of the pearl should be smooth and free of marks while the overall shape could be round, oval, pear-shaped, or even misshapen. Misshapen pearls are called baroque pearls.

TOHO- and MIYUKI-PEARLS

They are high quality glass beads from Japan that are known worldwide. The seed beads of the two companies are very uniform in shape and size and differ significantly from other pearls on the market. The high quality of the pearls is evident among other things also in the extraordinary variety of colors.                   According to the manufacturer, the name "TOHO" means "treasure of the east". The pearls resemble small treasures, because they stand for the highest quality and thus meet the demands of our customers.
