Freshwater pearl & Tahitian pearls Freshwater pearl & Tahitian pearls

Freshwater pearl

Most Freshwater pearls come from China, and are the product of an elaborate process in which a single resilient mussel can be harvested many times, yielding several pearls at a time. To provide these pearls at an exceptional value, we offer them with good levels of quality, and set with 14k gold posts and clasps.

The Freshwater pearl looks remarkably similar to the Akoya pearl, but Freshwater pearls are available for almost 1/5 the price of Akoya pearls. The only tradeoff is that Freshwater pearls are generally smaller, less symmetrical, and not as well matched when strung on a strand. But if you're looking for pearls at an outstanding value, Freshwater pearls are the perfect gift.

Tahitian pearl
Tahitian pearls offer a dramatic touch. The natural black color of these
Pearls comes from the color of the oyster's black lips.
These pearls are traditionally called "black," but their color can range from a metallic silver, to the color of pencil lead. And within this range of colors they can have bluish, purplish, or greenish overtones.
Tahitian cultured pearls are cultivated from the black-lipped variety of the pinctada maxima oyster which reaches a foot or more in diameter, and produces very large pearls. This oyster is very sensitive to the pearl culturing process, which makes the pearls very costly to produce. A gift of Tahitian cultured pearls makes an extraordinary, unique gift.
