GIA Cultured Pearl Classification Report

(PRESS RELEASE) The GIA Cultured Pearl Classification Report is an abbreviated report that provides classification information on unmodified cultured pearls. This dossier-sized report includes a detailed classification of the submitted pearl(s) based on the GIA 7 Pearl Value FactorsTM as well as a digital image of the submitted item(s). It is specifically and exclusively for the three major types of cultured pearls (Akoya, South Sea and Tahitian pearls), with no identification or advanced testing of the pearl(s) being performed. If a pearl is found by GIA gemologists as being modified by treatment (except routine processes) or as not belonging to one of the accepted pearl types, the pearl service will automatically change to a pearl identification report. Submitted pearls may be loose, mounted, strung, or in a fixed design layout for a strand or jewelry item.

She Wanted to Spend More Time with Her Kids. She Called Wilkerson.

Your children are precious. More precious than gold? Absolutely! Just ask Lesley Ann Davis, owner of Lesley Ann Jewels, an independent jewelry store that — until the end of 2023 — had quite a following in Houston, Texas. To spend more time with her four sons, all in high school, she decided to close her store. Luckily, she was familiar with Wilkerson and called them as soon as she knew she wanted to move on to bigger, better and more family-focused things. Was she happy with her decision? Yes, she was. Says Davis, “Any owner looking to make that life change, looking to retire, looking to close, looking for a pause in their career, I would recommend Wilkerson. Hands down!”
