Freshwater Pearls

Freshwater pearls are the most popular choice due to the correlation between their affordability and characteristics. They look quite similar to Akoya pearls but are generally smaller, cheaper and less round.

Freshwater pearls come from mussels, not oysters are mainly originate from the lakes and rivers of China. Unlike oysters, a single mussel can produce multiple pearls at once and is less sensitive to its environment.

Coloured Freshwater Pearls

Coloured freshwater pearls have the largest natural array of colours, including white, peach, orange and pink. Their coloration could be achieved naturally prior to formation, by irradiation, controlling the mussel’s diet, its environment and augmenting its genetics. Alternatively, their colour could be changed synthetically through dying.
