Tiny Imperfections on the Pearl Surface Are Normal
Imperfections such as spots, wrinkles and abrasions do not usually affect the durability of a pearl and are very common

Pearls were used cosmetically by the ancient Egyptians and by the Chinese, who credited the pearl with aphrodisiac virtues. The formation of a pearl is the result of the mollusk’s self-defense mechanism, reacting to a foreign body; example: a grain of sand that managed to penetrate its flesh.

Zamak is an alloy of zinc, aluminum, magnesium and copper with a 12 microns silver layer. The advantages of Zamak include hypoallergenic properties as well as a nickel and lead free metal. Therefore, it causes neither allergies nor rashes.
