2 Easy Tips To Help You Judge Pearl Quality

Tips to Determine Pearl Quality

Whether you’re a pro or an amateur, buying pearls becomes an easy task with these 2 super useful tips. After deciding upon the pearl type, color, and size, look out for these 2 defining factors – luster and blemishing. The end goal is to buy pearls with the most lustre and least blemishing. But consider your personal preferences first, of course. What you like is what matters at the end of the day.

What is luster?

Luster refers to the shine of a pearl. So, the more shiny and reflective a pearl is, the better is its quality. A pearl with the most amount of luster will have definite reflections of its surroundings. One way to determine a pearl’s quality is to view it in low light and see the kind of reflection it gives out. A good quality pearl will give out a sharp reflection as compared to a dull one.

What is blemishing?

Pearls with next to no blemishing don’t exist. A blemish could be varying shades of color, tiny dents or such imperfections. So it becomes imperative to determine the amount of blemishing on the pearls you’re looking to buy. The trick is to look at the pearl in bright light as these blemishes may not be visible to the naked eye in regular lighting.

It is important to note here that a pearl with the most amount of lustre and minimal blemishing could also be on the expensive side. So the shopper should pick the right balance between quality and preference. Sri Jagdamba Pearls offers a great variety of pearls, and is the perfect place to indulge in some jewelry buying. Happy pearl shopping!

Birthstones of March: Aquamarine and Bloodstone

Often linked with zodiac signs, different gemstones represent different birth months of people. These birthstones have a positive impact on the life of people who wear them. Each month has a couple of different birthstones that a person can choose from.

March, signifies the transition of the seasons from the chilling winters to the warm summers, as do the birthstones of this month. Symbolizing warm soothing spring, the birthstones for March are Aquamarine and Bloodstone. Both these stones are polar opposites when it comes to physical appearance, but they both represent the perseverance of the health of the wearer.


Derived from the Latin word ‘aqua’ and ‘marine’ meaning water and sea, Aquamarine is not only the birthstone for March, but also a symbol for youth, hope and health.

This stone’s colours range from pastel blue and greenish blue, to the more rare and expensive darker shades. Aquamarine is usually found as a large hexagonal crystal which makes it suitable for cleaving in larger carats. Larger the gemstone, darker and more intense is the hue.
