Quality of Pearl (Moti)

Looking forward to buying a Pearl stone, what standards should you keep in mind while purchasing one?

Moti is one of the unique gemstones which are formed naturally underwater rather than mined from the Earth’s core, hence the standards that affect its quality are a little different. Aspects like shape, lustre, size, colour, and treatment process affect the quality & price of the pearls.

Size:The size of the gem is often measured in Millimeters by length and width, generally they are found around 7 mm to 15 mm.

Shape:The most valued and best-quality stones are the ones which are formed in round or oval shapes, although they are also found in irregular and symmetrical shapes.

Colour:Moti is found in a number of colours, every shade with uniqueness and beauty like - pink, white, cream, yellow, golden, black, violet, blue, etc. White and Cream ones are the most liked and so often are in demand.

Luster:The natural shine or lustre is the luminescence that is reflected on the surface of light. The satin-like appearance of the gem increases its elegance and value.

Treatment Processes -Once the pearl is extracted from a mollusc, it undergoes a treatment process to make it more alive, enhance its shine and remove any irregularities or flaws, if possible.

Pearl Stone Jewelry(Moti)

Moti has been used to make jewellery for centuries. Because these organic gemstones are very gorgeous looking-wise, they quickly gained popularity and their magical properties as per astrology added to their value.

Original pearl stones have a hardness of 2.5 - 4.5 on the Moh’s scale, which means, they are very delicate and need to be cared for. People in ancient Greece used to believe that these gems were actually tears of god. Hence, they become an accessory for both women and men, each gender loving them for their soft tones, shine, and evergreen jewel type.

These days they can be seen in every variety of jewellery whether it be rings, necklaces, pendants, brooches, hair accessories, or even clothing (Designer Sarees and Blouses). Even their portraits display royals wearing various Pearl malas at once. Since the demand has increased, people have started to cultivate Moti and fulfil the market demands.

Origin of Pearl stone(Moti)

Pearl stones come from both freshwater bodies and saltwater ones. In earlier times, they were used to be found all over the world, however, now the natural Moti stones are rare and are scarce.

Persian Gulf (Basra Region), California, Indonesia, Venezuela, Myanmar, Philippines, Australian Indian Ocean Waters, and the Seas of Bahrain are a few major sources of these gemstones.

In today’s market, most Moti stones are cultured, farmed, and cultivated. Hence, the price of natural pearl gemstones is increasing day by day.

Pearl Price in India (Moti Price)

Pearl stone price ranges between INR 500 to 3000 Per Carat in India, depending on its origins and quality factors like size, shape, lustre, solar, etc. The treatment processes done on the gem can also increase or decrease the selling price.

Also, they are cultivated these days as well but natural gems are always in demand and always cost more.

Shape:Naturally, there is no fixed shape of a pearl gemstone. They are often deformed and found in irregular shapes. So the ones which are rarely found in proper round shapes sell in higher amounts. A pearl's nearly spherical shape adds charm to its look, plus the difference in shape and form gives a sense of uniqueness when set in a piece of jewellery.

Size:Larger sizes are hardly found, hence their cost will be higher. Normal size ones are more regular in the market hence their cost will depend more on their quality and colour.

Lustre:A good nacre contributes to a good lustre and the gems with shine and grace thereby demand higher values.

Colour:These gems are found in almost all colours from lighter tones of cream, white, and pink to warm shades of golden and yellow, extending to cooler tones of green, violet and blue. Creamy white to creamy ones with a hint of yellow and pink or orange hue are desirable and sell at higher figures.

Although available even to this date, South Sea and Basra pearls are increasingly rare and often sold at auctions for their skyrocketing prices. Mabé Pearls (semi-spherical), Tahitian pearls (dark, greyish purple) and South Sea (peachy, sunny coloured) are popular choices as well.
