The Freshwater Pearls Collection
Freshwater pearls date back to the ancient Chinese manuscripts from the 14th century. Freshwater pearls were not commercially harvested until the 1930's and were predominantly processed in China. Freshwater pearls are found in mussels of freshwater lakes, ponds, and rivers. The majority of freshwater pearls today are produced in China, due to the country's ability to mass-produce these products for the world markets. Only 2% of freshwater pearls that are produced are round in shape. When the Chinese freshwater pearls first entered the market, the quality that was being produced was very poor. With the advancement in culturing techniques, the focus on quality has risen tremendously and they are now some of the most competitively priced pearls on the market.
