Pearls are a living gem....the connective energy of atoms that frames the crystalline structure of pearls has always been respected in meta-physical worlds. The conchiolin protein in a pearl which binds these crystals, if pharmaceutically extracted then applied, will heal the skin of burn victims with less pain and scarring and this has been shown in the scientific world…pearls are a healing gem. 

We select our pearls direct from the pearl farm and guarantee that our pearls are natural color and unprocessed. We lightly clean the pearls by tumbling them in salt water or light buffing to remove ocean residue left on the pearl’s surface at harvest.  Large Asian pearl wholesalers which sell to American pearl wholesalers are very skilled in processing medium and low grade pearls to make them appear higher grade. They strip down the pearl’s nacreous surface by acid soaking or barrel spinning them with abrasives hoping to improve the appearance of luster, (which is only a temporary benefit) or reducing the depth of any naturally occuring blemishes. Using heat, irradiation and dyes enhances color and is unstable.  All these artificial processes weaken the pearl’s structure and destroys the essence of why we want to adorn ourselves with pearls...something found in a natural state from the womb of the abyss. Beautiful pearls naturally glow from the inside (orient) like the soul of an enlightened person. Our moderate grade pearls sell for very low prices, they are what they are, we do not enhance any of our pearls thus not creating an illusion to sell them for more...this is another element of the authenticity of Pearls Krisana.


This is the surface of a Mother of Pearl shell of the Tahitian Pearl(Pinctada margaritifera) reflecting the same natural beauty as the pearl as it is made exactly of the same pearly nacre. Pearls have a natural beauty imparted by orient and color, the pearl requires no cutting or polishing to out its radiant sheen. With perfection as its birth right, the pearl stands alone among gems. Orient is the pearl's famous iridescence, which sets it apart from other jewels. Orient defines the essence of pearliness---the uniquely captivating play of light over the translucent surface of the gem. Layer upon layer of nacre, each one composed of overlapping plates of translucent aragonite mineral crystals glued together with conchiolin protein makes up the gem. It can be compared to that of a cabbage with layers of overlapping leaves. Orient occurs at the serrated edges of the leaves---the aragonite plates---where light diffracts and scatters. As the rays of light pass through the microscopic layers of aragonite and conchiolin, they reflect off the surface of these two substances in a different manner, producing different wavelengths. This interference produces the rainbow effect of iridescence that seems to swirl over a pearls surface. Most artificial pearl treatments, especially those with heat, irradiation or chemicals breaks down this natural interplay of light, crystals and protein.
