Robert Wan: Luxury pearl jewelry at Mercat del Diamant, Andorra

40 years ago, a Chinese pearl cultivator named Robert Wan revolutionized the pearl cultivating process by creating his Tahitian pearls. He is considered to be a pioneer in this trade. The extraordinary beauty of a Robert Wan pearl is echoed in the entrancing play of light upon its surface. A pearl’s luster is caused by light striking the surface of the pearl then passing through the layers of aragonite crystals that compose the nacre. This light is then reflected back to the viewer. The tighter the layers of aragonite crystals the more intense the pearl’s luster will appear; this property is indicative of a high-quality pearl.
