Freshwater pearls 1 - 5 mm
Here you find small freshwater pearls sized 1.5 - 5mm suitable for necklaces.
These pearls are cultivated pearls which have grown in a shell for 2 to 4 years.
Freshwater pearls are normally stringed on necklaces with silk beading thread. For small pearls like the ones in this category, we recommend silkbeading tread with 0.6mm gauge. The necklaces can be closed in several ways, you can for example knot the thread and glue the knot into a 3mm crimp bead with eyelet or a 3mm ball-shaped crimp end with eyelet. Then you attach a clasp to the eyelet.
