How to Distinguish Pearl Grade

December 08,2023

 Pearls  are exquisite gems that have been treasured for centuries. Their beauty and elegance make them a popular choice for jewelry. However, not all pearls are created equal. They come in different grades, each with its own unique characteristics. In this article, we will explore how to distinguish pearl grades and understand their quality levels.


Grade A Pearls

Grade A pearls are typically irregular in shape or semi-round if they are classified as A grade round pearls. They often have small spots, markings, or imperfections visible on their surface. Despite these imperfections, some people appreciate the natural look of Grade A pearls as it sets them apart from glass or plastic imitations. However, they usually don't exhibit the best luster. Due to their lower quality, Grade A pearls are not commonly found in regular inventories and are typically sold as special orders.

Grade AA Pearls

Grade AA pearls are round or near-round in shape. They possess approximately 80% good luster and are relatively clean, with few significant imperfections. Only upon close inspection, flaws or slight blemishes may become noticeable. These pearls offer a decent level of quality and are commonly used in jewelry making.

Grade AA+ Pearls

Grade AA+ pearls exhibit high luster and have a clean surface of over 90%. They are mostly round or near-round and have minimal imperfections, even upon close examination. These pearls provide excellent value for their price, presenting a great combination of quality and affordability compared to higher-grade pearls.


Grade AAA Pearls

Grade AAA pearls are known for their excellent luster and very round shape. They appear almost perfectly round and have a surface that is 95% free of any blemishes, spots, or imperfections. These pearls represent the highest standard grade available for loose strands, necklaces, and bracelets. They are considered the epitome of pearl quality and are highly sought after by collectors and enthusiasts.
