Freshwater Cultured Pearls

These pearls are gathered from freshwater lake and river mollusks. Most Freshwater pearls come from China and they can be mostly round to off-round, or rice-shaped to baroque. They look similar to Akoya pearls, but are the perfect gift when on a budget. They might be slightly less symmetrical, smaller, or not as easily matched, but these minor differences provide a major value for the price.

Cultivation

Pearls are produced naturally in the body of salt and freshwater mollusks, such as oysters and mussels. When these animals sense an irritant, such as a grain of sand, they produce a soft coating of calcium carbonate substance around it. The result is a pearl. Because perfectly round, naturally produced pearls are so rare, a process known as cultivation was developed by Kokichi Mikimoto in the early 1900s. A small bead of polished shell, the nucleus, is used as an irritant and delicately inserted into the mantle of a mollusk. It takes approximately 20-24 months of intensive husbandry to cultivate a saltwater pearl and somewhat less time to cultivate freshwater pearls. The harvest usually takes place during the months of June and September.

Color

Mollusks produce pearls in a variety of colors, accommodating most personal preferences and budgets. The general color of a pearl is also known as the body color. Pearls typically range from white, cream, and yellow to pink, silver, or black. An overtone of secondary color is sometimes seen. For instance, a pearl may appear to be white, but upon closer inspection a rosy hue is detected. The body color would then be termed white-rosé. Color variation does not affect the quality of the pearl, though it should be noted that color matching is important when choosing pearls for some necklaces, earrings, or bracelets. In fashion jewelry, pearls can sometimes be dyed to achieve the desired color, which should be mentioned in the product description or specifications.

Lustre

The appealing, deep shine of a pearl is often what defines its beauty. This shine is produced by multiple layers of semi-opaque calcium carbonate crystals, called nacre. The nacre reflects light on the surface of the pearl, producing brilliance and sheen. Lustre is an integral feature in determining the quality of a pearl. Large pearls have a thicker nacre and, therefore, a higher lustre. When comparing a small Freshwater pearl to a large South Sea pearl, the difference is clearly visible to the untrained eye and should be considered when purchasing pearls.

Shape

While pearls come in many different shapes, the rarest and highest-quality are round. Akoya, Tahitian, and South Sea oysters tend to produce the roundest pearls, while those of Freshwater mollusks can be oval to slightly off-round. When considering a pearl purchase, whether it be a necklace, bracelet, or earrings, look for consistency in the shapes of the pearls. Many of the less symmetrical shapes are used in stylish jewelry which can be quite beautiful: the drop pearl's shape lends well to earrings, and the baroque pearl features irregular shapes that work well as necklace accents. In addition, a half sphere pearl called a "mabe" is often used in earrings, necklaces, and bracelets.

Size

An oyster's particular type and size has a direct effect on how large the pearl it produces will be, and pearls do come in a wide range of sizes. Round pearls are measured according to their diameter, while baroque pearls are measured by their length and width. A pearl's size does not necessarily affect its quality, but it does affect its price. Large, round pearls are rare and their lustre is usually high--this beautiful combination of traits is often reflected in the cost of such pearls.

Average pearl sizes (in diameter):

Akoya: 6-8mm

Freshwater: 5-6.5mm

South Sea: 11-13mm

Tahitian: 11-12mm

Keshi: 4-10mm

Surface Markings

Often when an oyster creates a pearl, the nacre does not develop smoothly. The surface of a pearl is judged by how many marks are visible in the nacre. These imperfections can be small and unnoticeable or quite large and distinct. Like diamonds, pearls are rarely flawless. However, high lustre or the way pearls are strung and set can help conceal surface markings.

Care

Proper care of pearls is not difficult if you remember that they are organic and produced by a living thing. Pearls are soft and delicate, but when cared for with common sense, they will maintain their lustre for centuries. The pearls should not come in contact with cosmetics, hairspray, perfume, chlorinated water, or other harsh chemicals. To keep them clean, let them be the last item put on when dressing, and the first item taken off at the end of an evening. The best way to maintain their lustre is to wear the pearls often, and wipe them down with a soft cloth afterward--pearls absorb the oils from skin, which helps keep them moist. Pearls should be stored in a cloth pouch or jewelry bag, separated from other jewelry to prevent nicks or chipping. Periodically, pearl strands should be restrung since the silk thread used to tie the pearls together breaks down over time.

    Color Name: tonal-rose Verified Purchase
    I wanted a long strand of pearls to wear with a short pink pearl necklace I already own. This necklace is STUNNING! The picture is very accurate; there are various shades of pink from dark fuchsia, to light pink, to an almost lavender pink. The pearls are baroque shape (eg, not perfect spheres), which makes the necklace stand out. What the picture doesn't convey is how substantial and high quality these are. These look and feel expensive, and have some weight to them - just as cultured pearls should. And the price is very reasonable. The strand is long enough that I can wear it doubled around my neck. It looks good either doubled at the same length, or with one strand hanging lower than the other.

    The necklace came in a blue velvet pouch inside a pretty blue box. I get compliments every time I wear this. The necklace looks good with a variety of jewelry, especially pink stones like tourmaline or sapphires. I will definitely buy additional strands in the tonal colors. My only minor quibble is that Amazon doesn't have a bracelet available individually. Still, I highly recommend this necklace!

    This is also available longer, 6-7mm Multi-Tonal Rose Baroque Pearl Endless Necklace 100".
    Stretch bracelet set, 7 Piece Fall Tones Fresh Water Pearl Stretch Bracelet Set, 7.5"

    *UPDATE* I also purchased this necklace in the coral. It is also beautiful and high quality. Please see my pictures of both color necklaces. I will definitely buy more of these in different colors - they are great for everyday wear to work.

    Size of the pearl was very good but the color was not so vivid like the photo.
    But don't worry because it is still beautiful.
    Shape of the pearl is exactly like the photo.
    It was beautiful on my neck.
    I am so pleased with this necklace because it's quality is worth more than $19.

    Color Name: tonal-chocolates Verified Purchase
    LOVE, LOVE, LOVE these long strands. I bought the chocolate multi-toned strand and I double them around my neck to make 2 strands hanging at different lengths. They are shiny and the colors are rich. Some of the pearls have a flaw or two, but it adds character to each pearl being unique on a long strand.

    The only thing I didn't like was the fact that you can easily see the threading string between the pearls if you are holding it closely, but it didn't bother me enough to knock it down to 4 stars.

    I want to get some of the other colors, too! A superb addition to my collection! Thanks, Amazon!

    Color Name: honeysuckle Verified Purchase
    This is a beautiful pearl necklace....the color and shine are great. The only problem with it is that it is strung too tightly, and so it doesn't drape the way it should. I like the color, and I intend to restring it a little looser so it drapes the way I want it to look. I won't wear it until after I have restrung it. I could have sent it back, but I just didn't feel it was worth the effort. I liked the color and shine (beautiful) so I don't mind doing a little restringing because I know it will be beautiful after I've spent an evening playing with it.

    Color Name: rose Verified Purchase
    I am happy to own one of this pearl strands. I bought the rose color. It looks amazing. It is very long so it has to be doubled, but I found that by twisting the double strand I get a wonderful 18-20" thick strand of pearl necklace. For this setting you need a clasp to close the necklace. I have one from a similar twisted strands of pink pearls Pink Freshwater Cultured Pearl and Pink Ice Glass Twister Bead Necklace,36", and I can match them together or use that kind of clasp.
    I wonder if other colors are as beautiful.

    I was not expecting much because of the price, but these are actually quite nice. It's long enough that I can wrap it around my neck a few times. Got a strand in white and one in Aqua.

    Color Name: white Verified Purchase
    When I ordered these pearls I did not know what to expect in terms of quality, look, and length. I know it says the length very specifically on the product page but since I have never had a long necklace, I did not fully understand how long it would be on me. All I knew what that I want a strand of pearls long enough to tie in a knot and wear long. When these pearls arrived, they went beyond my expectations and I am so very pleased with them. They are exactly what I was looking for and I will order from this vender again. I plan to order more pearls in various colors and I cannot wait. The packaging these pearls came in was also very nice, personally I felt that the box the pearls came in was almost nicer than the pearls themselves. The only reason someone would be disappointed in this set of pearls is if they did not realize they were getting basic freshwater pearls. This means the pearls are not perfect, they are not really round, and they are not all perfectly one color. I love them for this but I know many people would not like the imperfections.
