Pearls are the ocean’s greatest gift
Also known as ‘nature’s greatest miracle’ or ‘queen of gems’, pearls have been treasured as adornments for thousands of years. Pearls are formed when an irritant (like a fragment of shell) becomes trapped within the soft inside of an oyster. They are a beautiful accident.
In ancient Rome, pearl jewellery was considered the ultimate status symbol, while Chinese royalty were presented with pearls as gifts as far back as 2300 BC. Today pearls are still considered one of the most elegant and pure forms of fine jewellery.
South sea and Tahitian pearls from The Online Jewellery Company
There are many types of pearls available, named according to their shape or origin. At ojco.com.au you can browse a wide range of pearl earrings, necklaces, pendants and bracelets specially selected from the world’s finest pearl harvesting locations.
South sea pearls hail from Australia, Indonesia and the Philippines and come in colours ranging from white and cream to a more golden hue. Our lustrous south sea pearl necklace with 18kt yellow gold ball clasp would make any jewellery lover swoon. While items such as this necklace combine a selection of smaller pearls, south sea pearl sizes range from 9mm to 20mm. If you’re someone who likes to showcase larger precious stones and jewellery pieces, you may like our south sea pearl and diamond pendant in 18kt yellow gold or a pair of circle pearl and 18kt yellow gold hook earrings.
Tahitian pearls are also known as black pearls. Surprisingly they can also be found in shades of grey, blue, green and purple. They have become highly favoured in recent years amongst fashionistas who see the Tahitian pearl as an edgier alternative to the white and cream of the south sea pearl. The colours radiating from our Tahitian circle pearl hook earrings are simply divine and change in hue depending on the light. If you’re looking for a piece of jewellery to really set you apart, our stunning green Tahitian pearl and diamond ring with 18kt white gold or grey Tahitian button pearl ring set in 18kt yellow gold are covetable pieces that you should consider.
Pearl jewellery as a special gift
Do you have a friend or flame who seems to have it all? Perhaps she already has an impressive jewellery collection with lots of diamonds and gold. A rose gold plated love or friendship ring necklace featuring three south sea pearls could be the perfect gift for her. Alternatively, for the lover of minimalist jewellery, the south sea pearl necklace strung on a fine 18kt white gold trace chain would be just divine.
