Chinese Freshwater Pearls once had a reputation for being the poor relative to other types -but no more!
Their quality and lustre has greatly improved since the 1990s and the variety of pretty colours available makes them ideal for designer pearl jewellery.
As such, the popularity of cultured freshwater pearls has soared and they are now seen as a fashionable must-have.
All our pearls are carefully selected for their quality and beauty. Explore the map below to learn more about where our pearls come from.
The Freshwater Pearl is without doubt the most versatile type of pearl available in every respect.
Colour-wise, Freshwater pearls come in a rainbow of pastels, from white and cream to pink and lavender, sometimes with rose, cream or ivory overtones. They are also available in many other colours such as black and greys by means of a treatment process.
The character of a freshwater pearl is found in its particular surface and the glow of its shine. The nacre of an premium freshwater pearl does not commonly have the lustrous, metallic completion found in akoya pearls, and they are assessed on entirely different quality metrics.
For the woman who likes a wealth of options when it comes to her pearls, Freshwater are perfect. They have the widest size range of all pearls; measuring between 2mm and 20mm.
