Pure Pearls (Freshwater Pearls)
Pure Pearls grow in freshwater mussels, and about 95% of production comes from China. These Pearls are formed through a complicated process in which tissue grafts are implanted into live mussels. They come in a variety of shapes such as droplet, button and oval, the rarest being round. Freshwater Pearls are most commonly about 7mm to 8mm in size.
