Also, when picking a pearl, there are various factors that you have to take into account. For example, because they are porous, the pearls can absorb other substances, so if you notice a big stain, you should ask the jeweller if this can be removed. Look for cracks in the pearl’s surface, because these could be problematic in the future. Make sure that the shine is uniform: the pearl should brighten when placed under a fluorescent light. Ask information concerning the nacre’s thickness. And last, but not least ask the jeweller if the pearl had been cleaned with beeswax: sometimes, during the cleaning, the wax could affect the glitter.
