Cultured pearls are formed in a similar way, but require careful human intervention using a process called nucleation. A surgical procedure is performed by highly skilled technicians who carefully open live pearl oysters.
The cells from the mantle tissue develop around the nucleus forming a sack which closes and starts to secrete nacre. The nucleated oysters are returned to the sea or special pearl farms where they feed and grow, depositing layer after layer of lustrous nacre onto the nuclei implanted within them.
