What is a freshwater pearl?



A freshwater pearl comes from freshwater mussels. Freshwater mussels have a defense mechanism that means that if a foreign body penetrates the shell and it settles on the mantle tissue of the mussel, a process begins where the mussel produces nacre. After a few years, the mussel has produced a freshwater pearl.


What is the difference between a natural freshwater pearl and a cultured freshwater pearl?

A natural or genuine freshwater pearl is a pearl that has been produced in nature without human contact in the process.

Cultured freshwater pearls are, in contrast to natural pearls, created and produced with the help of humans. Cultured pearls are created and grown on large mussel farms around the world, mainly in Asia. Most pearls today are cultured pearls.



What is the difference between saltwater pearls and freshwater pearls?

Saltwater pearls can be found in the sea, and they can have different appearances, in terms of colors and shapes. The most popular color in saltwater pearls is pink.

Freshwater pearls can be found in rivers and lakes, and they also have different shades, such as white, pink, purple, peach or beige shades. There are also freshwater pearls that are dyed. For our gold and silver jewellery, we use freshwater pearls in their natural colors and shades. See our selection of jewelery with freshwater pearls here .



How do I best take care of my jewellery?

All our jewelery is made in gold-plated/sterling silver, which oxidizes over time. This is a natural process but can be delayed by using our maintenance advice. We therefore recommend that you store your jewelery in the jewelery box in which we send your purchased jewellery.
