What means the pearls classification ?

The classification concerning the surface quality of cultured pearls of Tahiti is:

Category A: Pearl with at most one imperfection or group of light imperfections concentrated on not more than 10% of its surface. Very beautiful luster.

Category B: Pearl with some slight imperfections concentrated on at most 30% of its surface. Chandelier beautiful or medium.

Category C: Pearl with slight imperfections concentrated on not more than 60% of its surface. Medium chandelier.

Category D: Pearls with either slight imperfections on more than 60% of the surface, without deep imperfections, or light and deep imperfections concentrated on not more than 60% of its surface. Luster weak.

What mean the luster and orient of a pearl?

The luster of a pearl is the measure of the quantity and quality of light that is reflected by the surface of a pearl or just under the surface of a pearl. The more your reflection in the pearl is sharp, the higher the luster.
The luster of a pearl of good quality is clear and bright. A pearl that appears too white, dull or limestone, is of low quality.

The orient of a pearl is the way in which the prism of natural light breaks down in the depths of a pearl's aragonite layers. This iridescence gives the pearl all the brilliance that will be sublimated by reflections of colors that go from white to black in shades of cream, pink, blue, peacock green, purple and gold.
