The Ultimate Guide to Pearl Engagement Rings

What Exactly Is a Pearl?

Pearls are a one-of-a-kind gemstone formed within the shell of a shelled mollusk, such as an oyster or mussel. The gemstone is most well-known for its gleaming iridescent outer layer.

Pearls are one of the most delicate, if not the most delicate, options for an engagement ring. Because pearl rings are uncommon, they are an easy way to stand out and get people talking about your engagement.

Not only are pearl engagement rings visually appealing, but they also have a special meaning. Pearls are said to represent wisdom, integrity, and loyalty, all of which are essential in your relationship with your partner. Their organic and lustrous beauty has come to represent the moon and its power, and their subtle sheen suggests purity.

Pros and Cons of a Pearl Engagement Ring

Pearls are a lovely and elegant choice for an engagement ring. Pearls haven't always been a popular choice for engagement rings due to the gemstone's nature and scarcity, so you can be sure that your ring will stand out from the crowd. Furthermore, the stone's versatile color allows it to pair beautifully with any metal of your choice.

The gemstone has some disadvantages. Pearls may also lose their luster over time, and they are extremely soft, ranging from 2.5 to 4.5 on the Mohs scale of hardness. Most unusual engagement ring stones, such as sapphires and rubies, begin at an 8, with traditional diamonds ranking highest at a 10. As a result, you will need to take extra precautions with your pearl engagement ring to avoid any potential damage or scrapes.

What to Look for in an Engagement Ring with Pearls

  • Where can I find a pearl engagement ring?

    Pearls, despite their scarcity, can be found at a variety of jewelers. For more options, look outside of traditional engagement rings and look for your ring in places where you might find heirloom pieces and fine jewelry.

  • What is the average price of a pearl engagement ring?

    Pearl rings can range in price from a few hundred dollars to thousands of dollars. Natural pearls are extremely rare and expensive. There are various types of pearls, some of which are rarer and more valuable than others, so the species and size can influence pricing.

  • What stones go well with a pearl engagement ring?

    Tapered baguettes or round diamonds on the sides are a very classy way to highlight your pearl while also adding extra sparkle to your ring. You can also combine different diamond shapes and complementary gemstones, such as multicolored sapphires, to create a ring that is as unique as you are!

How to Look After Your Pearl Engagement Ring

Because pearls are made of organic material, they are more prone to damage than diamond rings. The fine coating on the surface of a pearl, known as nacre, is very thin and cannot be replaced or repaired once it has worn away. Pearls should always be worn 'last on, first off,' gently wiped with a clean jewelry cloth, and safely stored away from other jewelry items that could scratch them.
