White Pearl

Classic and elegant, white pearls add a touch of sophistication and glamour to any piece of jewellery. These beautiful gemstones are formed inside mollusc shells and are prized for their white colour and iridescent lustre.
What is a White Pearl?

A white pearl is a type of pearl that is naturally coloured white. Pearls are formed when an irritant, such as a grain of sand, becomes trapped inside the shell of a mollusk. As a result, the mollusk produces layers of a substance called nacre to coat the irritant and protect its soft body. The layers of nacre build up over time, resulting in the formation of a pearl.

White pearls are prized for their delicate, luminous beauty and are often used in jewellery as a way to add a touch of elegance and sophistication to a piece. They are also believed to have healing properties and are sometimes worn as a way to promote tranquility and calmness.

The value of white pearls is determined by a variety of factors, including the intensity of their colour, the presence of blemishes or imperfections, and the quality of their luster. White pearls with a higher luster and fewer blemishes are generally more valuable.

The Birthstone of June

Pearl is the birthstone for the month of June, and it is also the traditional stone for the zodiac sign of Cancer. It is a symbol of purity and innocence, and it is believed to bring clarity and wisdom. It is said to help one find inner peace and to promote self-acceptance. It is also said to bring good luck and to enhance prosperity.

Pearls are formed when an irritant, such as a small piece of sand, enters a mollusk and the mollusk coats the irritant in layers of iridescent nacre. They can be found in different colours like white, black, pink, and purple. They are often used in jewellery such as necklaces, earrings, and bracelets. They are also believed to have healing properties and are used in crystal healing to balance the crown chakra and to align the mind with the spiritual realm.
