Like a natural pearl, a black pearl secretes nacre in response to an irritation in the oyster. The layers of nacre build up to create the pearl. It is the internal colour of the oyster that ultimately determines the colour of the pearl.
The By Fairfax & Roberts Pearl Collection features on-trend real freshwater pearls sourced from around the world. Our skilled jewellers have created simple yet timeless pearl pieces to showcase their natural beauty.
Real freshwater pearls are organic gemstones. They are a very soft gemstone only rating 2.5 on the Mohs Scale of Hardness, meaning pearls require special care to maintain their radiance and lustre over time. When not wearing your pearls, preserve their beauty by following these simple care and maintenance steps.
Every woman loves to be treated on her birthday. Make this birthday a memorable one with a special freshwater pearl piece from the By Fairfax & Roberts collection.
No longer saved for special occasions, pearls are now the latest jewellery trend. When you purchase a set of pearls, you want to make sure you are buying a quality piece to last.
