Luster, diameter, shape and surface are the four criteria to take into account when evaluating a pearl.

The four criteria for evaluating a Tahitian pearl: 

Luster

The quality and thickness of the nacre determine the luster of a pearl. Therefore, gems increase in value according to the intensity of brilliance.

Diameter

The millimeter is the unit commonly used to measure the diameter of the pearl. The average pearl diameter ranges from 8 to 13 mm. Pearls also increase in value according to their diameter.

Shape

Generally, Tahitian pearls are spherical or perfectly spherical, oval, teardrop-shaped or baroque. Perfectly spherical pearls are extremely rare, that is the reason why they are also the most expensive. The more perfectly round the pearl, the higher its market price.

Surface

Pearls whose surface has no imperfections at all are extremely rare. The surface area of a pearl is usually covered with tiny asperities and inequalities, which determine its classification. The most expensive specimens are obviously those with the least amount of imperfections. The lowest rated pearls are those withdefects over more than two thirds of their surface.
