Pictures of Pearl Rings 

Are you planning to buy pearl rings? Then you can have a better idea by looking at designer jewellery pictures of pearl rings. There are so many types of pearls and so many colors as well. When scanning through brochures or catalogues with pictures of pearl rings, one will usually observe that there are many different qualities such as size which differ. There are even unusual colors available such as pink, blue and lavender pearls.

Aside from the obvious size, how does one know what to look for in pictures of pearl rings? Can one tell if the pearl is natural or cultured or even imitation? Actually, there is no way to differentiate natural from cultured pearls or imitation pearls just by looking at pictures.

Even when the pearl is physically present, x-ray machines are required to distinguish between natural and cultured. You just have to rely on the reputation of the seller and his word on whether the pearl is natural or cultured.

However, most pictures of pearl rings would indicate some of these qualities that the pearls have. These factors which determine quality are size, shape, color, luster and matching. As no two pearls are exactly alike, when the pearl rings are composed of two or more pearls, the best rings would be rings with pearls that almost match in size for uniformity. You can ask your jewellery boutique attendant on how to choose the right pearl for you.

Obviously, bigger sizes of pearls would also be of higher value as it takes longer time to grow the pearls. Pearl shapes are classified as spherical, symmetrical and baroque. Spherical pearls are round or nearly round pearls while symmetrical pearls are oval or drop shaped which are used for fashion jewelry.

Baroque pearls are odd shaped pearls which are perfect for jewellery brands conscious people who prefer one of a kind jewelry. The round or near round pearls usually sell at higher prices. As for luster, the more a pearl surface reflects light, the more lustrous it is and the more valuable is the pearl.
