AAA Minor surface blemishes High luster Well shaped Good to excellent
AA A few surface blemishes
but not influence their
overall appearance
Good luster Kind of well shaped Medium matching

Some are visibly not

Tips: Excellent matching means that each pearl is nearly uniform in size, shape, color, surface quality and luster for pairs and strands.
