What are Cultured Freshwater Pearls?
Cultured 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!

My Beads has gained a strong reputation for our range of freshwater pearls, developing relationships with key cultured pearl suppliers over the years. We continue to offer very competitive pricing, and strive to offer a high level of value in terms of the overall appearance (size, shape, nacre and lustre) of our pearls. We offer a range of qualities, from very affordable irregular nugget pearls to stunning, lustrous near-round pearls. We select our pearls based on their inherent appeal – so even our most inexpensive pearls are beautiful and very wearable!
