PINK LAVENDER PEARL DROPSAMBER SHELL EARRINGS

GOLD and PEARL STUDS

5mm freshwater pearls with 9ct solid gold fittings. Available in six natural freshwater pearl colours.

"CULTURED" pearls are not cultured at all;  they are layers of nacre laid down by the oysters in the sea upon man-made shell spheres introduced into each shell.  The layer of pearl can wear away leaving an awful "hole" in the nacre.  By comparison "freshwater pearls" are SOLID nacre.  However the freshwater mussels rarely grow very large pearls.  Pearls more than 8mm are extremely expensive because they are so rare.  The value of freshwater pearls lies in the evenness of the pearls in size and colour.  The sorting process deals with millions of single pearls before putting aside enough for a simple necklace or earrings such as we have here.

CLICK THE "PEARLS" BUTTON on the left to see the harvesting of freshwater pearls in South China.
