Shopping With Pearlescence
Before you order, please take a few moments to read these notes
All Pearlescence pearls are real pearls. They are all cultured– which is a jewellery trade word for farmed. They come from pearl farms around the world.
We try to make all our descriptions accurate. Individual items are photographed, or a sample from a hank of loose pearls. We do not use generic photographs and all photographs are done by us. All photos and words are copyright Pearlescence unless otherwise stated.
Pearls which are described as round will appear round when rolled on a flat surface on their string. Semi round are slightly egg to oval when examined but will look round in wear.
A 'good' lustre means that the lustre is reasonable, with no chalky patches; 'very good' means most of the pearls have a good shine; 'metallic' means that most of the pearls have an exceptionally good lustre with a mirror reflective lustre.
Please do understand that with the pearls we supply quality is reflected in the price. Do not expect metallic perfect 12mm round pearls for £5 a strand.
Goods remain the property of Pearlescence until properly and fully paid for.
