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.

    These earrings are perfect for a toddler. They are small, but still noticeable. The fact that they are round on both sides is perfect because there is no post poking them. It's also good that it screws on, so that you don't have to worry about the backs coming off. My daughter has been wearing these 24/7 for about 3 weeks now and her sensitive ears are fine, so they're definitely gold.

    One earring was lost because the backings did not screw on tightly and became loose. Just spent $25 on earrings that last a week! Not happy!

    The earrings are truly perfect for a toddler. However, when they arrived, we noticed that one of them does not secure properly. I notice now that someone else had the same problem. I hope if I get them replaced the same won't happen again.

    I purchased these earrings for my 1 year old daughter. The pearl is a good size for a 1 year old, not too big. However when I went to take the backing off the earring, the pearl fell out. I had to return them for a refund. Will not purchase them again.

    These are a great price and looked really nice when they arrived. They are the perfect size for a toddler/child and I love that they are reversible and have no pokey back. I gave them to my daughter for Christmas and just discovered when we put them on that one of the backs doesn't screw on properly.It isn't threaded right or something and just spins. The other one is fine and gets secure, but they will be going back for a replacement for sure. Overall, the appearance and quality is nice, if our pair was a random dud, then I think they are worth it. They are also gold, so they won't cause any ear issues for kids.

    I have had my ears pierced for 40 years, and they are always infected and closing up. I can't sleep with earrings in because the back either pokes, or they twist in my ears and I feel like they are cutting through. Hoops, studs, plastic backs, you name it, I've tried it without success. So, I purchased these as a last ditch effort. (Was thinking that it's time for clip earrings and ditch my pierced earrings)
    These are wonderful!! The first couple of nights were difficult because of being aware they were on. But they didn't hurt or twist. I now have them on 24/7, except when I want to wear my other earrings. And the cool thing is that I can wear my other earrings without bleeding ears!! I don't notice them at all when I'm sleeping and sleep fabulously now!!
    I've had them about a month, swimming, showering, sleeping and have had no problems with the pearls falling out as the other reviewers have mentioned. Great product!

    These earrings are great! I was worried they would be too big & would look tacky but they are the perfect size. The gold does not irritate my ears and I love that they are reversible. The only thing negative I could say would be that it may be difficult for those with poor cognition to screw the little ball on the back.
