Elegant freshwater pearls come from China and they can be 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.
Freshwater Pearls are cultured in mussels that live in non-saline water environments, such as lakes, rivers and ponds. Most Freshwater Pearls are farmed in China and it has been the country's tradition since recorded over 4000 years ago. Freshwater Pearls are made of pure nacre thus tend to be more durable and less prone to chipping than their salt-water counter parts. These pearls usually range in size from 6mm to 12mm and come in a variety of colors and shapes and tend to have slightly less luster and usually less expensive than salt-water pearls.
