Pearls are naturally unique. They are part of a small group of organic gemstones created by a crystallisation process inside a mollusc shell. Pearls take years to develop, making them a prized gemstone.

Cultured pearls are humanity's work at duplicating what nature first started. A "seed" – typically a round bead made of mother pearl is inserted into the mollusc. After three years, you have a pearl. The art of created cultured pearls has made it nearly impossible to distinguish between the two types of pearls.

At Michael Hill, we have a selection of cultured pearl pieces, expertly designed to fit your own style. Timeless classics and modern designs are part of our full line of gemstone jewellery, all created to delight the woman who wears them.
