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.

    It can be worn casually at work or formally on an evening out.

    I actually like the slight variations in size and color because it distinguishes them from fake pearls and make them look more natural.

    The Product Specifications are so scant that I would not have dared to buy this necklace if not for the good reviews. Now here I am, hoping to pay it forward with mine. This necklace is much better than I'd expected for the modest price. The pearls are semi-round and measure 6 to 7mm across, with decent lustre, much as shown in the pictures. Perhaps a quarter have minor pocks and scuffs - nothing dire, and not discernible from an arm's length away.

    My favourite thing about this necklace is the colour - the pearls come in pretty variations of delicate pink and the overall effect is charming. I have a fair complexion and, in that context, would call this a skintone sort of pink. It's so neutral that it looks good even against a bright red top. It does for my neck what a highlighting eyeshadow would do for my browbone. You don't need to be in the first flush of youth to wear it well, and it won't make you look like you raided Hello Kitty's costume jewellery drawer.

    This is the first time I've owned a rope-length pearl necklace, and this particular length is easy to play around with. The stringing and knotting feel good and secure - a little tight in spots, but nothing that won't ease up with use.

    I am beyond pleased with this necklace. It will dress up outfits for work, dinner, church and parties in a ladylike manner, and it has inspired me to save up for the higher-quality pink pearls and pearl ropes that I hope lie in my future.

    I just received these pearls for Christmas, and I'm delighted with them. They are around 7mm in size, round, and they match quite well in size and shape, with a little color variation. The flaws are small and not terribly noticeable. These are much nicer than other pearls I've seen in this price range. The strand looks nice worn single or doubled.

    I purchesed these for my mother for her anniversary. I wasn't sure what to expect as I had never purchesed pearls before. I am really impressed with this purchase. Pearls do have some unevenness and imperfections but its not noticable unless your examining them up close. I believe length is going to be good, can wrap around the neck 2 times. Mom is going to be very impressed aswell! Hopefully they will hold up over time. Pearls came in a dark blue velvet-like bag inside a jewelery box which was great.

    def recommended.

    This is my first pearl necklace, and I am so pleased. I've work it to work, and out on dates, and it makes every outfit look so elegant. The pearls are a beautiful, soft shade of pink - they are so feminine. They may be a little tightly strung, but it's certainly not noticeable when they are being worn. I am no expert on pearls, but - for this price - I would absolutely recommend this necklace to anyone.

    Feel obliged to write a review because I realize reviews are quite important for fellow shoppers. Bought a few pearl strands recently and it is one of the best. The pearls are good size and high quality with beautiful luster. It's long enough to make 2.5 regular size necklaces. The price is really good. It came from China, I think. But can you get this necklace for this price in China? Maybe a few years ago but not nowadays. So I might buy another one soon...

    I've gone a little "pearl crazy" lately, so I was thrilled to see pearls this beautiful at such a great price! They are almost a "peachy" pink color, and I think they will go with many different colors of outfits. There are very few flaws, and they have a lovely glow. I do not think any woman (of any age) would be disappointed with this necklace.

    As a hobby, I make jewelry -- don't sell it, which torques my husband's chain because he thinks I could sell my designs and make $$ from the effort. However, I've told him that doing so would make my "hobby" a "JOB", and I don't need another one of those, thank you very much -- OOOOH, back to these pearls -- Lovely, Lovely, Lovely. I ended up taking the whole strand apart and making 5 beautiful necklaces with really gorgeous focal beads on them! I know, I know...but I couldn't resist. I have worn my necklaces and gotten lots of compliments on them. These beads look very sophisticated in the long strand, so you could wear them with a business suit or a nice professional dress. Not cheap-looking pearls.
