Which pearls are best? Your quick guide to buying pearl jewellery
When looking to treat yourself to a piece of pearl jewellery, traditionally five criteria determine the quality of the pearls, which in accordance with the most established pearl grading system are graded between A and AAA, AAA being the best quality. These five criteria are:
- Shape, perfectly round pearls are still the most expensive, though many more beautiful shapes are formed
- Lustre, the surface/nacre of the pearl, the more metallic and mirror like the surface is the better-quality pearl
- Colour, the evenness in colour of the pearl surface
- Size is a highly determining factor for price, the larger the pearl generally the more expensive
- Thickness of nacre, the metallic lustre covering the pearl. The thicker the greater the quality of the pearl
However, when buying pearls, go for the shape and colour you love and then for the best quality and the jewellery design that speaks to you and feels most like you and reflect your personality.

Lockdown this time round seems harder on many of us. Working from home, coupled with homeschooling in the dark, cold and wet winter days leaves something to be desired. So what is a girl to do to get her mojo back again? First off, start dreaming and stimulate your senses.

Bored? Worried? Exhausted? Are you in need of getting your mojo back? Then why not treat yourself to a little imaginary city break to Copenhagen? In the words of Hans Christian Andersen ‘To travel is to live’. As humans we love to explore, expand our horizon, challenge our taste buds and perceptions, meet new people and explore the unknown. However, nurturing our wanderlust is off the table currently, so let’s resort to traveling in our minds.
This little guide is meant as a little pick me up and as a mental stimulus for your senses as you transcend yourself to Copenhagen, even if just for a little while.
