Frequently Asked Questions
What is a freshwater pearl?
A freshwater pearl is a type of pearl formed in freshwater mussels. It is the most commonly used type of pearl for jewellery and can come in various shapes, sizes, and colours. Freshwater pearls are typically less expensive than saltwater pearls, making them a popular choice for jewellery makers.
How much is a freshwater pearl worth?
The value of freshwater pearls depends on their size, shape, colour, and lustre. Generally, small pearls are worth less than larger ones, and those with an off-round shape are less valuable than perfectly round ones. The colour and lustre also impact the value; pearls with soft colours and high lustre are more valuable than those with duller colours. A freshwater pearl can be worth anywhere from $1 to $500.
What is a cultured freshwater pearl?
A cultured freshwater pearl is a type of pearl created in a controlled environment by introducing a foreign object into the mantle of an oyster. The oyster then secretes nacre, which builds around the object to form a pearl. These pearls are typically rounder and smoother than their saltwater counterparts.
What does cultured freshwater pearl mean?
A cultured freshwater pearl is a type of pearl that has been grown and harvested in a controlled environment, usually in a mussel or oyster. They are created when an irritant, such as a bead or piece of tissue, is placed inside the mollusc. The mollusc then secretes nacre to coat the irritant, creating the pearl. Cultured freshwater pearls are most commonly used for jewellery and can be found in various shapes, sizes, and colours.
How to care for freshwater pearl jewellery
To care for freshwater pearl jewellery, store it in a cool, dry place away from direct sunlight. It is also important to avoid contact with chemicals and other substances that could damage the pearls. Use a soft cloth, warm soapy water, or specialised pearl cleaner when cleaning your jewellery. Avoid using harsh detergents or abrasives, as this may scratch the surface of the pearl.
How do you tell if a pearl is freshwater or saltwater?
Freshwater pearls tend to have a more irregular shape than saltwater pearls, which have a more symmetrical appearance. Additionally, freshwater pearls usually have a matte finish with some light spotting, while saltwater pearls typically have a higher lustre and fewer blemishes. Lastly, the size of the pearl can also be an indicator; freshwater pearls tend to be smaller than saltwater ones.
How to clean freshwater pearl necklace
To clean a freshwater pearl necklace:
1. Mix a solution of warm water and mild soap
2. Soak the necklace in the solution for approximately 10 minutes.
3. Use a soft-bristled toothbrush to gently scrub the pearls and remove any dirt or residue.
4. Rinse the necklace thoroughly with clean water and pat it dry with a soft cloth.
5. Store your necklace in a cool, dry place away from direct sunlight.
What is a freshwater pearl vs cultured
Freshwater pearls are natural pearls found in freshwater mussels. They are usually smaller and more irregularly shaped than cultured pearls. Cultured pearls, on the other hand, are created by inserting a small bead or nucleus into an oyster or mussel. The oyster then coats the nucleus with layers of nacre, resulting in a pearl of much higher quality than a naturally occurring one.
