If you are looking to add a beautiful single pearl necklace
to your collection of jewelry, there are several things that you should
consider so that you buy the perfect necklace for you. You can choose between
buying natural, cultured or custom pearl necklaces.
This will all depend on the style that you like and the type
of budget that you are working with.
There is always something available whatever your budget is. You simply have to carry out a little online
search to find the perfect thing for you.
There are 3 main types of pearls that can be used to make a single pearl strand necklace and each one has its advantages and disadvantages.
- Natural pearls
- Cultured pearls
- Custom pearls
Natural Pearl Necklace
Natural pearls are very rare these days. The method of collecting these types involve gathering together many pearl oysters and pearl mussels, opening them up and hoping that you will find a pearl from the collection. There are no guarantees so you can not know how many pearls will be found. Most natural pearl necklaces will be sourced from antique stores or specialist shops.
Cultured Pearl Necklace
These type of pearls are also
naturally sourced but the difference is that they are harvested from specially
designed pearl farms. The producers will
cultivate the growth of the pearl oysters and pearl mussels by inserting a
foreign body into the shell which promotes the grown of the pearls. When the time comes, the shells are opened
and the pearls are released.
Custom Pearl Necklace
If you are after a cheap pearl necklace this is the cheaper alternative. There is a plethora of custom jewelry available and you will find that there are lots of custom white pearl necklaces on offer. During the 1990, when Madonna first hit the scene, she was famous for wearing lots of pearl necklaces around her neck and on her wrist. This is still a very popular look for young people today. A great way to achieve this look is by using custom jewelry as it very cost effective.
The Size Of Pearls Available
The size of the pearl will affect
the price of the necklace. The bigger
the pearls are, then the more expensive it will be. Some people like the bigger more substantial
look while others prefer the smaller pearls which can look a little more subtle
and not so ostentatious.
You can choose to buy a single strand necklace but there are also multiple strand pearl necklaces available too. Again, this will cost a little bit more money due to the increase in the amount of pearls.
There are a lot of things to
consider when you are looking to buy a single pearl necklace. If you have an open ended budget, you may
wish to purchase in a natural single pearl necklace as this will not only be a
lovely piece of jewelry but it will also make a good solid investment and a
beautiful gift to pass on to the next generation in your family.
If you like the look but do not have extensive funds, you can still buy lovely pearls within your budget. Have a look online to find a good quality single pearl necklace suitable for whatever occasion.
