As a rare and precious gemstone, pearls are naturally beautiful and do not require manual carving and processing, making them a beautiful and precious accessory. Since ancient times, it has held an important position in people's hearts, carrying rich historical, cultural, and emotional values. With the maturity of pearl farming technology in modern society, the production of pearls continues to increase, and pearl products continue to enrich. Pearls have also become one of the fastest growing varieties in jewelry consumption. This review analyzes the influencing factors of pearl formation by exploring the process and internal mechanisms of pearl formation. At the same time, by collecting existing research methods, we look forward to the development of the pearl industry. The exploration of the process and mechanism of pearl formation has important scientific significance and social value. By strengthening scientific research and protective measures, sustainable development of pearl aquaculture can be achieved, and more contributions can be made to the inheritance and development of pearl culture.
