Stunning Necklace of 9mm White Freshwater Cultured Pearls

My finest white freshwater cultured pearls make up this necklace.

Cultured freshwater pearls are a favorite of mine. Why? Because they are almost 100% nacre (the pearly substance that makes up a pearl). To get these beauties started, a skilled person implants only a very tiny piece of mantle tissue into the muscle of a freshwater mussel. Up to 50 of these tissues can be implanted into one mussel.

The volume of pearls that can be grown in one mussel is a factor that makes freshwater cultured pearls such a value product.

In contrast, saltwater pearls contain a shell bead which is coated with nacre. These are gorgeous too...don't get me wrong, but with most freshwater white cultured pearls there is absolutely no chance of the nacre peeling off to expose a shell bead.....because there is no shell bead, nothing but pure lustrous nacre and a tiny mantle tissue piece deep inside of the pearl.

Wow....maybe that's more information than you even wanted to know, but since pearl information is my biggest interest I love passing on these facts.

Pearl growers are culturing more and more round freshwater pearls. The round shape is the most desired shape in pearls, although most of my youthful friends actually prefer irregular baroque shapes.

Dear Kari
I just wanted to let you know that my pearls are gorgeous!! I truly love them!! My friends are all jealous!
Thank you so have a great holiday!!

Laura Day

I have to commend you on your willingness to work with us!
I actually found myself smilling at your e-mail because of your kindness!
I am definitely going to tell anyone I know about how wonderful your pearl sale services are!


Thank you for my peach pearl necklace with two sizes of pearls that you knotted (beautifully!). The pearls are lovely and I've had lots of compliments on them. Wow. A personal note. I really like your site. Lots of information and great photos too. You seem like a generous person...............thank you.


Thank you so much for the beautiful baby bracelets. The skeptic in me did was not sure what kind of bracelet I would get for a dollar but when I saw them I knew that it was worth far more than the dollar and I knew that even more when my 2 year old little girl opened the package and the first thing out of her mouth was "Beautiful"--- thank you so much for making my little girls day!


I bought my wife your pink pearl set for Christmas, and she really enjoyed receiving the present. Thank you very much. I chose to buy from your site, because it seemed more personal somehow, than a typical jewelry site. I enjoyed reading the information you provided, and it bore out in a wonderful gift for my wife. Thanks again.


Hi Kari,
The necklace was beautiful and quite a hit for my sister-in-law. Thank you for sending it so quickly. Happy New Year.


Hi Kari,
I bought some pearls from you a few months ago and I just wanted to tell you that I love them!! I never wear them without someone giving me a compliment!! I bought the little girl's braclet for my niece and she will not take it off!! They are truly gorgeous...your pictures do not do them justice!!


Hi Kari,
My black pearls arrived yesterday. Mondays are long for me, so I didn't get them until I arrived home at 10:00 PM. You said satisfaction guaranteed. I must admit I'm not satisfied. That's far too tame a word. I'm thrilled. The pearls are stunning. When I opened the silky bag and poured them into my hand, I think my heart actually skipped. I'm sure I gasped. The luster is exceptional. Blemishes moderate to light. Great color. I'd have to say I believe them to be better quality than described.
