Cultured Pearl Earrings Sterling Silver Plated in our Design Room 

Our round Freshwater cultured pearls make an excellent, affordable gift of good quality pearls.

As opposed to rice-shaped Freshwater pearls, these pearls are mostly round, and look very similar to Akoya pearls when worn, but are available for a much lower price.

Most Freshwater pearls come from China, and are the product of an elaborate process in which a single resilient mussel can be harvested many times, yielding several pearls at a time. To provide these pearls at an exceptional value, we offer them with good levels of quality, and set with either Sterling Silver or 14k gold filled chains and clasps.

The Freshwater pearl looks remarkably similar to the Akoya pearl, but Freshwater pearls are available for almost 1/5 the price of Akoya pearls. The only tradeoff is that Freshwater pearls are generally smaller, less symmetrical, and not as well matched when strung on a strand. But if you're looking for pearls at an outstanding value, Freshwater pearls are the perfect gift.

Coloured Freshwater Cultured Pearls

Freshwater cultured pearls can be created in a spectrum of colours. Many popular Colours - blue, teal, white, pink, orange, and other pastels - can be achieved through natural means, including the pearl mollusk's genetics, what they eat, and the amount and type of trace metals in the cultivating environment.

It is a widely-accepted practice to treat or irradiate Freshwater pearls in order to achieve a particular or unusual colour, and equally common to treat Freshwater pearls to create a more evenly-coloured strand. Pearl colours should always be chosen to complement the wearer's complexion and wardrobe preferences.

From a value standpoint, when selecting coloured pearls, it is important to understand if the colour is natural or the result of some post-harvesting treatment. For example, Tahitian pearls, cultivated in black lipped oysters, are the only naturally occurring charcoal to black pearls. It should be made clear to you that other pearls exhibiting these colours, have been treated, and that fact reflected in a lower cost.

Our beautiful Freshwater cultured pearls are available as beautiful Jewellery in any design.
