Pearl A pearl is a hard object produced within the soft tissue (specifically the mantle) of a living shelled mollusk. Just like the shell of a clam, a pearl is composed of calcium carbonate in minute crystalline form, which has been deposited in concentric layers. The ideal pearl is perfectly round and smooth, but many other shapes (baroque pearls) occur. The finest quality natural pearls have been highly valued as gemstones and objects of beauty for many centuries.
Gold(14K) A coating of gold is deposited on the item using the galvanic method or IP process. It is mixed with other metals, usually silver or copper, to make it less expensive, harder, and longer lasting while preserving the brilliance of pure gold. 14k gold is 14/24 of pure gold, which is approximately 58.3% pure gold.
