Called the tear drops of angels, pearls have always had a special place in history. Pearls were adorned by the most prestigious people throughout time and now available for you to wear.
Pearls are formed when a small irritant enters into an oyster. This is when the magic begins. Oysters will begin to secrete a substance called nacre over top of the irritant. Layers and layers of nacre will build up over years and often face harsh conditions from storms to predators feeding off the oysters. However, for the oysters who survive, they are capable of producing beautiful lustrous pearls.
Fortunately, techniques have been developed to encourage the growth of the pearl, as well as oysters and have made them more commercially available. Pearls are farmed all throughout Asia. At Kyllonen we provide all of the most common types of pearls and only the best quality.
