Freshwater pearls are pearls that are cultivated in freshwater mussels, rather than in saltwater oysters like traditional pearls. They come in a variety of shapes, sizes, and colors, including white, cream, pink, peach, lavender, and even gray and black. They are typically less expensive than saltwater pearls and are widely available, making them a popular choice for jewelry.

The history of freshwater pearl farming can be traced back to China, where the technique of culturing pearls in freshwater mussels was first developed over 2,000 years ago. The Chinese have been cultivating freshwater pearls for centuries, mainly in the rivers of the country.

In the 19th century, the Japanese began to cultivate freshwater pearls using a different method, known as the “bead nucleation” technique, where a small bead is inserted inside the mussel along with a tissue graft. This method allowed for the production of pearls in a wider range of shapes and sizes.

Freshwater pearls are now also farmed in other parts of the world, such as the United States, France, and Australia. The farming process is more sustainable than saltwater pearl farming and it produces pearls that are less expensive than saltwater pearls.

In terms of its properties, freshwater pearls have a smooth and creamy texture, and they are said to have a soothing and calming effect. They are also said to have a healing effect on the body, particularly on the skin and the respiratory system.
