Below is an easy way to remember the points.
Long Time Cravings Sometimes Suddenly Stop.
L is for Lustre. Whatever your budget you should never scrimp on Lustre. If necessary compromise on size and blemishes, for it is the pearl lustre that lights up the wearer’s face giving her a glowing complexion.
Here at Coleman Douglas Pearls we individually choose all our pearls for their deep lustre.
T is for Thickness of nacre. The thicker the nacre is the longer the pearls will last, and usually the better their lustre will be. It is important to check that the pearls do not have dull spots as this means the nacre coating is too thin in that area.
C is for Colour. You must always choose the colour to suit the skin tone of the wearer.
Our Pearl Team are always on hand to help find you the perfect pearl colour for you.
S is for Surface perfection. A few marks on a pearl give the hallmark of genuineness, but very blemished pearls are to be avoided.
S is for Size. This is the last point to be considered as no matter how big the pearls are, if they are dull then they will look heavy to the eye and weight the wearer down. It is essential to consider the overall build of the wearer when thinking about the right pearl size.
