In the GIA and Dokuz Eylül University DGL value criteria, the most important factors that indicate a pearl’s quality are its large size and a shiny, unblemished and round appearance.
In keeping with the pearl quality you desire, all the pearls in our store are gem quality.
Our Akoya Pearls are all graded AA+ and AAA, satisfying high quality standards with their perfect roundness, unblemished surface and lustre.
Our Freshwater Pearls have a higher lustre, a more regular shape and are more unblemished than other pearls sold on the market as ‘freshwater pearls’.
Our South Sea Pearls come to you inside the oyster, and just as with the Akoya Pearls, we derive great pleasure from the knowledge that we were the first in the world to come up with this presentation idea.
Our Tahitian Pearls‘, sometimes called ‘black pearls’, are also presented inside the oyster shell, and we are proud to be the first in the world to offer our customers the product in this way.
From the day of its inception, our company has adopted the vision of producing quality products and delivering the best service, successfully exceeding the reliability criteria of our customers, just as we will continue to do in future.
The satisfaction of our customers is of great importance to us. This does not stop at the point of sale; we want you to continue to be happy with your purchase as time goes on and therefore make no concessions on quality workmanship and superior service.
We have chosen a workmanship that meets all the values we prize so that you can give those you love gifts that meet all the values you prize.
Silver can be thought of as a material that tarnishes quickly and only shines when polished. However, this is a result of cost-cutting leading to poor workmanship and the wrong process of rhodium plating on the jewellery surface.
An important influence on the price of gems is the high value of quality workmanship.
The Difference Made by 100% Non-Tarnish Silver
Even if you put rhodium coating on low value silver or gold, it won’t shine like Oyster pearl brand silver. (The results have been seen by testing in our store.) The Rhodium Plating and Craftsmanship used in Oyster Pearl® specially handmade pure silver jewellery is only used by a limited number of brands worldwide.
Our Oyster Pearl® brand silver jewellery is top quality gem standard.
You can see the difference in quality when you compare the gold and silver jewellery sold by typical silver and jewellery stores with our products.
Oyster pearl® prefers e-commerce to the high price tags that accompany the huge expense of renting premises in a shopping centre or busy high street. Thanks to e-commerce, we can introduce every one of our customers to the quality of real gems at a reasonable price they can afford.
This is why we put every effort into making sure the quality that reaches you is the exact same quality that you see in the pictures. We use special techniques to make sure that you can see the quality of the gems in more real terms. We derive the greatest pleasure from knowing that you trust in our exceptional care in this area. Furthermore, if you do feel that the product you receive is not the same as the one in the image, we have no qualms at all about guaranteeing you an unquestioned refund.
In return for our experience in the sector and the trust that we are repaid with, we enjoy the great pleasure of being awarded accreditation certificates.
The products in our collection and offered to you on our e-commerce website are delivered with Guarantee Certificates that conform to international standards.
You can store your gems in the practical but elegant, stylish, specially-designed oyster-shaped casket, which is perfect for your gift.

Oyster Pearl, the favourite choice for exquisite ideas!
Saltwater pearls: there are three types - Akoya Pearl, Tahitian Pearl and South Sea Pearl. South Sea and Tahitian Pearls are known as ‘Ocean Pearls’.
Oysters that grow in the sea have a higher risk of disease as they have to cope with the natural environment around them. Living in a natural environment gives the pearl an extra lustre and higher quality nacre (mother of pearl) due to the minerals and beneficial organisms it takes in from the water. This is an important point for the Oyster Pearl brand. We choose our oysters with great care so we can offer our customers the most lustrous pearls with the best quality nacre (mother of pearl).
In oyster cultivation, different quality pearls are produced by the oyster according to the area where it grows. These pearls come in many different varieties, from those with a perfectly round surface to those with average lustre that are about the size of a grain of rice. *One oyster can only produce a pearl once or twice during its entire life.
An important factor in the cost of a pearl is its size. For this reason, they are measured with a special millimetre diameter-gauge.
The price of a pearl increases incrementally in considerable leaps along with every increase in size. Just as an example, the cost of one 18 mm saltwater pearl starts from $13,000 due to the high demand, and prices for pearls of a greater quality are inestimable.
Along with other important factors that affect the value of a pearl, the pearl’s size and genus are significant points.
A mere 1mm difference in the pearl’s size makes a huge difference to its appearance and to its price.
At Oyster Pearl, we always have the best interests of our customers in mind as we select the finest quality pearls.
MOTHER OF PEARL (NACRE)
Mother of pearl is a natural calcium carbonate based substance that is secreted by the oyster to protect its delicate structure against damaging shell particles and parasites. The inner surface of the oyster shell is covered in the same nacre.
Large pearls are more lustrous due to their greater number of nacre layers, but the more the oyster grows, the greater chance there is of the pearl becoming misshapen. This risk contributes to the higher price tag on large pearls.
Successive nacre layers give the pearl’s outer surface more lustre and also make it more resilient.
A pearl with fine layers of nacre will take much longer to wear away.
A pearl’s shape is affected by a number of factors, the chief one being the delicate structure of the oyster. The oyster tries to protect its delicate structure against foreign bodies, such as pieces of shell, grains of sand and parasites.
Therefore, perfectly round pearls are a rare find. The more an oyster has protected itself against foreign bodies and the rounder the pearl it has produced, the greater its value. The rarity of finding a perfect pearl increases its value.
Lustre is one of the most important factors distinguishing a high quality pearl from the others.
Lustre is created by the degree of brilliance reflected from the pearl’s surface and the light refracted from the layers immediately below it.
The shine of a high quality pearl is both deep and shimmering. A high value pearl has an incredible brilliance, but its symmetry and the quality of its surface are equally important.
You can easily see your own reflection in the surface of a top quality pearl.
A low quality pearl has a dull and chalky appearance.
The more unblemished, unpitted, unmarked and clear the surface of a pearl is, the greater its value. As tiny blemishes and pits affect the reflection and shine, they also lower the pearl’s value.
You can see that the reflection in top quality pearls is very sharp and mirrorlike.
While pearl colour is not necessarily a factor in their quality or price, they come in a range of colours from white to black and numerous shades in between.
Naturally occurring colours:
There are intermediate shades between these main colours, each containing a myriad of tones and mystical colour changes.
Choice of colour depends completely on personal taste; but pink and its overtones tend to suit fairer skin, while cream and gold tones are more flattering for darker skin. The meanings embodied by these colours give the pearl a more spiritual significance, making it a gem that you will always want with you. As an example: white is for purity, cream is for happiness, peach is for love and black is for wisdom.
