Cultured Fresh Water & Baroque Pearls
Cultured fresh water pearls are farmed and created using fresh water mussels. These pearls are produced in Japan and the U.S. on a limited scale, but are now almost exclusively produced in China. Freshwater pearls can be combined with a wide variety of jewelry components, including colorful gemstones. These classic beads make a statement in multi-strand looks, simple single strand designs, and in combination with gemstone beads.
