Pearls in the shell
What are Freshwater Cultured Pearls?
Freshwater pearls are found in bays and rivers throughout the world. They are cultivated from freshwater mollusks and are produced in
Asia. The most common color for freshwater cultured pearls is white. There are some other natural colors, such as lavender, dark
purple, cream, and pink, depending on the type of mussels. There are multiple pearl beads harvested from one oyster. They could be in
different shapes: off round, button, oval, rice, etc.
What are Tahitian Pearls?
Tahitian Black Pearls (also called SouthSea Black pearls) are cultivated in the black-lip oyster found in a variety of large pearl oysters
found primarily in French Polynesia. The Tahitian pearls produced have the color in natural tints of black, silver, gray, green, orange,
gold, blue and purple. An adult Pinctada oyster can reach a diameter of 30 centimeters, with weight exceeding 5 kilograms (over 10
pounds). The beautiful color combined with the large size command very high prices.
What are South Sea Pearls?
South Sea pearls are cultivated using the Pinctada maxima oyster (as called the silver lip or gold lip oyster), also known as the
Silver-Lipped oyster, found in the South Seas (an area centered around Northern Australia and South-East Asia including Myanmar and
Indonesia). These oysters have always been prized for their famous thick shells of lustrous mother-of-pearl. In the days of fishing for the
shell, these oysters occasionally yielded rare and stunning naturally occurring pearls. Southsea pearls are probably the most expensive
ones on the market. They run from 10 to 20 mm, and pearls come in many light colors and overtones, such as gold, silver, rose, white,
cream, and champagne.
