Description

On this page you will find our complete range of beautiful cultured freshwater pearls. We have a range of shapes for any project – nuggets, potato (off-round), rice, coin pearls and more! Please select from the categories below.


Freshwater pearls are farmed natural pearls grown by mussels. The mussel is implanted with a tiny piece of mantle tissue, in a process called nucleation. The pearl will then form around this tiny piece of mantle and be harvested when the desired size/age is reached. One mussel can produce dozens of pearls!
