Freshwater pearls for jewelry in all colors of the rainbow
Freshwater pearls are grown in live mussels. They are called cultured pearls, as opposed to natural pearls, which are formed in mussels in the wild without human intervention. The quality and price of freshwater pearls depends on the size and fineness of the pearl's shape - the more symmetrical and round the freshwater pearl, the more expensive it is.
Cultured pearls come in many different shapes, such as drops, perfectly round and asymmetrical. The color range of the pearls goes from dazzling natural white to golden, red, purple, purple, dark blue, turquoise and pink tones. The naturally occurring colors range from white to light violet and peach. Strongly colored freshwater pearls are all dyed with durable colors.
