Freshwater Pearls

One of the things I love most about our signature sterling charm and sea glass necklace is the freshwater pearl accent. Pearls are the only gem made by a living animal. Freshwater pearls are a product of mussels that inhabit lakes and rivers. The Japanese saltwater pearl is said to be the most lustrous in the world. Pearls have been a symbol of purity, love, class and style. They were worn in the Middle East and Asian societies as early as 3500 BC. Pearls are graded on values such as luster and shape. The addition of the freshwater pearl to our sea glass necklace helps to give it that classic appeal. Pearls are great for the work place or a night out (and sea glass is too!):))
