Pearls possess a natural beauty. This beauty comes from nature itself, hence the pearl is referred to as “The Queen of the Sea”. This pure and natural beauty can now be accentuated through faceting.
A pearl consists of thousands of microscopic thin layers of mother of pearl. Layers of good quality will reflect light on the surface of the pearl and hereby create a beautiful luster. If the pearl has orient, the mother of pearl is of exceptional quality and the light will be reflected and glow from the very inside of the pearl and through all layers of nacre.
This translucent effect can also be obtained when making facets on the pearl. All cultured pearls can be facetted, and especially the Tahiti cultured pearl shows an incredible and unique depth when faceted, underlined by the great range of colors. The inner layers of the mother of pearl becomes visible though the faceted surface.
Only pearls of high quality will be faceted, as larger surface spots will show even after faceting. Also the lustre must be good from the beginning as there is no enhancement of the shine during the process. The pearls are faceted by hand using diamond cutting, no coating or any other kind of treatment are added to the pearls. By faceting pearls we can accentuate the specific characteristics they have from nature and give them an exciting new expression.
