There is an interesting theory to say that, when a drop of dew fell into the sea, just be open to catch the shells, this will form a shiny pearl. With the development of science has gradually developed a real theory. In 1671, scientists believe that the formation of pearl sand accidents by the body into the shell mollusks, mollusks by the sand it does not stimulate the formation of pearls produced. Pearl is a gift from the sea, is the nature of an "accident." It is, after analysis, to explore this kind of "accident",
    Will explore the reasons for its formation and this principle into practice, specifically to a round of nuclear material or small meat shellfish certain implants in vivo, to produce artificial pearls, pearls have been a result of artificial breeding . Pearl farming is a strict and detailed knowledge about science, from the election of Tony, nursery, from Tony Miller - in beta - Great - sik nuclear - Yu-chu, a complete set of operating procedures and technical standards, it is necessary to raise a bead mother of Tony, the normal breeding time of 21 months, at least 18 months. Cultured Pearls, climate, environmental factors such as water quality important, but the key is sik nuclear technology, The success or failure of explants nuclear or not, not only the survival rate of pearl shell, and the layer of beads of time, have a great impact on quality. If the nuclear-sik successful, at least three years will be able to harvest the pearls.

4 what is meant by "south-pearl", "East-pearl", "West-pearl" and "Nanyang beads"?

This is the mother-of-pearl layer, is composed of many overlapping calcareous order by the slice, and when the mussels open suction the sand or micro-organisms when such objects would be access to their in vivo accident, when the mussels are not feeling well stimulation, it will secrete nacre layers of the invasion were surrounded in order to reduce their suffering. After years of secretion, it might become a small sand and the rich luster of a beautiful pearl. Its very rare, very expensive prices,Less available in the market for sale.

  (2) Refer to the cultured pearl seawater and freshwater cultured pearls, pearl aquaculture is the growth of sea water out of the shellfish cultivation, is home to a round of nuclear cumingii Chu Pui inserted inside the body, so by stimulating the secretion of nacre and will be home surrounded nuclear beads. (Round beads nuclear mother mussel shell from the ground) and fresh water cultured pearls are produced in the river or lake mussels in vivo, the formation of cultured pearls and the sea, but not nuclear beads, to switch to other shellfish meat Add a small article into the body and the clam grapple, it will secrete nacre surrounded. Sea water cultured pearls on the climate and environment for high yield sparse and one can only raise the general bene pearl,Freshwater cultured pearls and a multi-bay can be raised to 16. The shape of sea water cultured pearls are round, freshwater cultured pearls are mostly irregular in shape, this is their biggest difference.
    (3) Ma than beads shell beads are attached to class, check in the white dish shellfish, Penguin Bay, produced in South Australia. Is a convex cultured pearls and a blister-like lining martensii together by configuration. Convex-shaped blister pearl in the shell and is generally inserted between the mantle-like, wax or plastic beads made of semi-ball is placed down the water level of the mollusk shell produced. Hemisphere at the end of the plane with the shell of the inner surface of contact (At this point, to yield beads with bead diameter of mollusks the size than they normally should have been able to put up with much). Final layer of nacre from the shell was cut down, remove the half-beads, getting half a hollow dome of nacre,Then they are glued together.
    (4) Imitation pearl beads imitation is that it is not climate, environmental impact, as long as the conditions of a certain production technology, equipment and raw materials to production, because it does not have the use of pearls, can only serve as handicrafts, jewelry can not be included in category simulation and its strong, with a deceptive prices, customers are required to buy pearls to distinguish carefully.

  1 Lustre
    Gloss is a reflective surface to form beads, pearls in addition to the shiny surface of nacre also internal reflection, resulting in shiny reflective sparkle. Good luster pearls have a strong and sharp reflection of the pearl surface of the scope of light and dark have a greater contrast. In contrast, less shiny shiny beads poor, and the extent of the weakness of the anti-looks like there is a layer of powder So the feeling on the surface, also known as spent light. Advantages and disadvantages depending on the luster of the nacre thickness, and transparency fine. Fine texture (Fineness) or not is their nacre formation of atomic particles. Particles small and well-balanced, the texture will be fine. Such as coarse particles,The surface looks more rough texture, thereby affecting its luster. Gloss and the health status of mollusks, Pui local yield, yield-pui method, time, water pollution and the types of mollusks are related.
    2 The thickness of nacre
    The thickness of nacre cultured pearls directly affect the durability and beauty. If the cultured pearls in molluscs removed too early, would adversely affect the quality of pearls. In nacre may be wearing off, and can be seen in the light of the nuclear internal beads, very eyesores created.
    3 Shape
    There are three types of the shape of pearls, the value is the three-tier system:
    Commensurate with beads
    Shaped beads
    Of course, the best shape of bead-shaped, like a car into the same machine, the more He more precious beads, but more natural products not perfect, some bad round into a little before, the lower the value. Commensurate with the rest of the pear-shaped, egg, teardrop-shaped, button-shaped, curved-shaped, etc., your upper and lower or even into a symmetrical shape of other objects. Very pleasing and the higher the value of special-shaped beads.

  4 Smoothness and Spltting

    Bead surface defects that directly affect their value. Smooth and flawless skin surface for the best, and some defects will not only affect the appearance of the beads, its durability is also dangerous. Common defects are:
    Bump and Welt
    Material is irregular bulge of the skin or by the excessive secretion of nacre formed. They do not affect the large beads to the basic shape, but easy to use processes where the naked eye to detect. Welt lineolatus is small, but if a lot of whip marks, it looks like countless wrinkles. If it is found that the surface of beads full grain indentation, like being struck like a hammer (Hammered Surface or Martelled Surface), it is not a serious flaw, because it can increase the changing color of the beads, but it seems more like natural pearls .
  Small pin-point and small point (Pinpoint and Pimple)
    Protrusion of the small dots, small needle point, the larger point  generally very small size, it is necessary to look carefully to see that.
    Black spots (Dark spot)
    This flaw is due to imbalance in the secretion horny black, on the point, revealed by the nacre to form inside. Sometimes these black spots in the bleaching process has been washed away, so not common.
    Dark spots (Dull spot)
    The formation of opaque dark pearl dark part of the secretion of nacre, if uneven, it will shine in a place so poor, it does not affect the durability of the procedure pearls, but dull is secreted as a result of the human body, cosmetics or eruption damage, etc., and even nacre also fade off, it will affect its durability.
    Gap (Clip)
    Pearl's surface holes bored in some of the most common beads. Pearl thin gap from the rest more, it affects not only beautiful, but also easy to possession of pollution.
    Crack (Crack)
    Pearl layer cracks, like a small, wrinkled, big hair, such as general, can be broken nacre, seriously affecting its durability.
    Space (Gap)
    Not covered with nacre place, not only far from being handsome, and his nuclear beads, beads by the neighboring wear.

  5 color
    Pearl color refers to its own color (Body Colour), with color (Overtone, also called the refractive index color) and change color (Iridescence).
    Their basic color is pearl pigment. With color is the pigment in their own color on the surface. Observation of color with black pearls, beads should be light in the face of it, observe the color with white pearls, the most vulnerable part in a more dark look at the surface.
  Change the color of color, including red, orange, yellow, green, blue, blue and purple color, such as Rainbow, most of whom are mixed together with color. There is a change in color for the color of pearls with a very valuable, in the round cultured pearls in the sea is not easy to find. Color change bead shaped ball is in the more common, this is because the surface of shaped beads and more rugged, white light can be dispersed in a variety of colors for the Rainbow. Freshwater pearls are also easier to see that change color with its color.
    6 Construction (make)
    When the judge or a string of pearl necklace jewelry inlaid good, the manual is very important. Structure refers to a string of beads, a pair of matching earrings or ring, that is, the color of beads, light-emitting shape, size, color and whether the pro-; lock is the middle of the hole; a string of beads in the size of gradual, whether the size of beads to moderate gradually formed, above the value of its significant impact.
