DawnRose Pearls Grading System
 

DawnRose Pearls Grading System

A well recognized pearl grading system must consider and include all of the factors as explained in the article An Overview of Pearl Quality Factors: shape, surface quality, size, luster, nacre and matching. Currently, there is no universally standardized grading system because of the variety of pearl types and their origins. For this reason pearls from different places each have their own grading systems.

In the current pearl market, grading systems can vary from retailer to retailer even within the same pearl categories and a considerable number of highway stores and less reputable internet pearl dealers do not personally grade their pearls at all, or quite often unreasonably price pearls without referencing any industry recognized grading system. However, most respected and reputable dealers adhere to the A-AAA grading system, sometimes also using the A-D grading system established for the assessment of Tahitian and South Sea pearls. Although some pearl dealers use an AAAA or AAA+ to appear to be a better quality, this practice is not an industry-accepted system and is not used by DawnRose Pearls. 

Please refer to the following articles for more detailed information. 

Each DawnRose Pearls product is strictly inspected and graded at the pearl source and further examined by one of our experienced in-house pearl experts all of whom hold Gemological Institute of America (GIA)* degrees, authorizing them to issue pearl certificates of authenticity.

*The Gemological Institute of America (GIA) is the world's foremost authority in gemology, which is the sole authority recognized and respected by finer jewelry establishments. GIA is the authority that professionally provides industry-accepted pearl education and training on pearl grading.
