A Pearl is one of the few precious gems derived directly from a living organism. It holds a mystical quality that has been sought after through time. Born from a grain of sand, a pearl is manifested within an oyster through the patient accumulation of nacre layers. You will find a large variety of sizes, shapes, and colors of pearls at Biederman Jewelers. Some of the basic varieties include Akoya cultured saltwater pearls, South Sea cultured pearls and Tahitian Black cultured pearls.

Size, color, shape, luster, and nacre are some of the factors that play into how a pearl is graded. It is best to compare individual pearls with each other on light or gray surface to judge their quality. Come into Biederman Jewelers and we will help you choose a quality set of pearls that you can enjoy for whatever occasion you have in mind.
