Freshwater Pearl Jewelry

Freshwater pearls have been gaining in popularity and quality over the last twenty years. Due to the high standards in processing, the result is a much higher quality pearl, with nearly perfect shapes and uniformity in sizes.

There are many sizes of freshwater cultured pearls, ranging from 1mm all the way up to 18mm, however the average usually runs from 4mm to 11mm. In addition to the varying sizes, there are also many different naturally occurring colors of freshwater pearls to be found. The most common are cream or white, with pinkish or greenish overtones. There are also other types of freshwater pearls which include pink, peach, black or chocolate.

Freshwater pearls work particularly well with necklaces, as the effect of many small millimeter pearls strung together is quite stunning. These necklaces can contain pearls of the same color or pearls with slight color variations to make the strand more eye catching. Likewise, with earrings, the jewelry can have graduations of size from small to large and look beautiful. Even the basic single pearl earring on a 14K gold band is elegant and flattering to everyone.
