FAQs about Pearl Earrings
Quality pearls have a strong lustre, which refers to how the pearl reflects light. But pearls aren't one size fits all—they come in many shapes, sizes and colours, from baroque black to pastel pink and everything in between. As with any jewellery, the best pearl earrings for you depend on your personal style.
Fun fact: pearls are considered the world's oldest gemstone and pearl earrings have been fashionable for centuries. From the sultry elegance of the Jazz Age to the glamour of today's red carpet, pearls make a chic pairing that never goes out of style.
Fake pearl earrings are made from plastic, alabaster, glass or shells that have a pearly sheen to give them the appearance of real pearls. Real pearls will be cool to the touch, have tiny irregularities and feel heavier in your hand than artificial pearls. Freshwater, Akoya, South Sea and Tahitian are all types of real pearls.
Fine cultured pearl earrings can cost anywhere from NZ$ 135 to NZ$ 22,950 depending on the colour, size, any gemstone accents and settings—there is a pair of pearl earrings to suit any budget.
