With particularly excellent geographical and climatic conditions and rich natural food, Zhanjiang has long been an important base for growing pearls. And Liusha Village in Leizhou City has been known as the “first village of Chinese pearls”.
As is well known in the international pearl market, the Southern Pearls (Leilian Pearl produced in China) are better than western pearls, and western pearls are better than Japanese pearls.
Pearls are praised as the “queen of the kingdom of jewelry”. They are not only de luxe ornaments but also a kind of rare medicine. According to the traditional Chinese medicinal theory, pearls can help one keep calm, relieve uneasiness of body and mind and reduce phlegm.
Tips: According to the local people, those pearls grown into the shells in summer are the best because they are shining, heavier, rounder and bigger.
How to select good pearls: you should consider the color, shine, thickness of the layer of nacre (mother-of-pearl), the shape and the flaw when you choose the pearls.
