Wish Pearls and Pearl Jewelry for every woman

Friday, May 18th, 2012

The pearl in the oyster, otherwise known as a wish pearl, would be the perfect present for any woman or girl in your life. These gift set are perfect for any occasion where a gift is required because they are affordable and the unexpected surprise of finding a pear in an oyster is both exciting, and memorable. The exhilaration will continue, as she discovers what color of pearl she has uncovered from the soft fabric inside the oyster.

Wish pearls contain a pearl from one of the four different colors, which are color-coded on the bottom of the packaging. The first color option is a silver or white color called Ke’oke’o, which in Hawaiian means fortune. Success, represented by a pink pearl had the name Akala. Poni symbolizes good luck and is represented by a blue/ black pearl. And finally, passion can truly be ignited by this lavender pearl, Piki.

When a pearl is formed, an irritant is placed inside the oyster, causing the oyster to try and reject the object as soon as it can. Because irritants are usually so deep inside the oyster, the oyster cannot discard it, and begins to form a nacre over the irritant. After several years have passed, the irritant is formed into a beautiful, shapely pearl. This process, though long, produces the beautiful freshwater pearls inside this oyster and gives a wonder gift.

It is easy to see why these gift sets are such wonderful presents and we know that anyone who receives them will love them. To find the best gift for anyone you know, shop online at alohapearl.com. We know you will love our products.

Wednesday, May 9th, 2012

It cannot be argues that pearls are the most exquisite gemstone. Pearls create the most beautiful jewelry because of the versatility they offer. These treasures come in many different shapes, sizes, colors and types. Each pearl possesses a characteristic that makes it special in its own way. Akoya pearls are one of the most stunning and popular because of the shape they come in. These pearls are always perfectly round because of the way they are nucleated.

During implantation, a farmer will insert a small glass or ceramic bead into the oyster. The nacre of the oysters shell then forms over the bead, creating a pearl with flawless shape. Another factor that sets these pearls apart, in their size. Akoya pearls are produced in smaller sizes than any other type of pearl. The largest that these pearls average is about 9mm and the smallest is around 4 mm. AKoya pearls are naturally white but can be enhanced to dark colors like black and blue and occasionally emerald green. Akoya pearls make the most outstanding pearl strands that you could find. Their small uniform sizes create strands that give off an elegant look.

These pearls look great in a pearl strand with same-sized pearls, as well as variegating sizes of pearls and will be sure to draw attention. Any woman would love to receive a gift of AKoya pearls. These pearls are flawless, just like the one you love, so shop at www.alohapearls.com to find the perfect pearl necklace.
