  South Sea Pearls typically have a lower lustre than Akoya pearls. This is due to the warmer waters, because the rate of secretion of nacre is much faster in South Sea pearls.

High, medium and low are typically used. The sharpness or fuzzy appearance of the light reflection as noticed in the window/box will determine the level of lustre.
