You Ask ...We Answer.


Freshwater Pearl Colors



The Colors of Freshwater Pearls 

China is the largest producer of Freshwater pearls in the world and traditionally these pearls have been cultured in the ‘triangle mussel’ (Hyriopsis cumingii).

The pearls this mussel produces come in the most charming natural pastel hues - pink, peach, lavender and white.

Since these pearls are tissue-nucleated, they are solid nacre which adds to their durability. But what this all-nacre characteristic also does is to give these Freshwater pearls lovely overtones.


White Freshwater Pearl Colors


The white pearls often have silver or rose overtones. Alternately, the pink, peach and lavender ones boast pale gold, light green, baby blue as well as powder pink overtones. These primary and secondary colors not only make Freshwater pearls beautiful, but they also lend a softness and romance to them.


Freshwater Pearl Colors: Pink Peach and Lavender


In gem-quality metallic Freshwater pearls, the pastel colors combine with the sharp, mirror-like luster to create pearls of dazzling beauty. Necklace strands of metallic Freshwater pearls, in pinks and peaches with gold overtones or lavenders with shades of greens and blues skimming on their surfaces are much coveted by pearl lovers and collectors all over the world.
