All about Freshwater Pearls

All about Freshwater Pearls

We love using freshwater pearls for our jewelry.  Unless you are shopping in a fine jewelry store, most of you are more familiar with plastic or glass pearls that are imitation pearls. 

Freshwater pearls are  real cultured pearls created by using freshwater mussels in lakes, rivers and ponds. 

Freshwater pearls are the most affordable pearl variety on the market today and offer excellent value to anyone who wants to venture into the world of pearls. Often called the ‘fashion-forward’ pearl, freshwater pearls come in a range of colors and shapes and are used in modern designs and jewelry styles.

Freshwater pearls come in a wide range of colors. The most popular freshwater pearls are white, cream, lavender and black. However, black freshwater pearls are not natural and they have been dyed. 

Due to the nature of the pearls, they are not perfectly round. They come in a variety of shapes, including near round, baroque, semi-baroque. These irregular shaped pearls can look more fashionable and nature.
