Used for generations in jewellery, cultured pearls are naturally essential for Maison Adler, using them for their organic note of lustrous softness and femininity that only a pearl can add to our creations.
Maison Adler selects pearls according to the following 7 classifications: Nacre thickness, Luster, Orient, Size, Surface, Shape, and Colour.
A pearls quality depends on the thickness of its nacre, which determines the longevity and the beauty of the luster. The nacre also displays a colour gradient, like a rainbow, known as orient which gives the pearl its irresistible charm.
The pearl is measured in size (diameter) by millimetres. With all qualities being equal, the larger the diameter the more precious and rare the pearl becomes. Along with a smooth surface, free of imperfections this also adds to its quality and greatly increases its value.
The most requested but rarest shape for a pearl is round. Every now and then given the wondrous orient and luster of baroque pearls, Adler likes to let their creativity run wild by using the never ending original shapes of these beauties in their creations.
