The Big Question:

Ever since the cultivation of Pearls began in the early 20 th century, questions about classification of Pearls according to where they are grown have been confusing people. The most popular of them on any given day is of course: “How are freshwater pearls and saltwater pearls different and which one is better?” The answer to these questions lie in knowing the details of how both are cultivated. Let’s see.. The Big Question

Freshwater Pearls:

Simple put, freshwater pearls are grown in lakes, ponds and rivers from freshwater mussel oysters. Freshwater Pearls are grown for anywhere between 2 to 6 years before finally harvesting them and with the risk of pollutants, the process is full of peril. A successful harvest deserves much appreciation. The cultivation of Freshwater pearls is concentrated mainly in China and in the last 10 years, the quality of these Pearls have not only improved, but also become comparable to the superior Hanadama Pearls from Japan with excellent body , shape, and luster. In fact, the nacre of freshwater pearls is very thick, more than that of saltwater pearls and this makes them more durable as a thin layer of nacre can more easily chip, peel or be worn down through wear.

The "perfection" of the true coloring and near perfect sphere make the salt water pearls much more desirable to consumers .
