    Do these look like South Sea pearls? They do don't they? Not surprising really because they are an example of a new type of nucleated freshwater pearl cultured using the same techniques that they use for south sea. Until very recently, it was thought next to impossible to nucleate a freshwater mollusc reliably to produce a round pearl with a smooth skin, but apparently a new sub-species was discovered that made it possible. That's not to say it is easy, so production of these pearls is limited...
    Do these look like South Sea pearls? They do don't they? Not surprising really because they are an example of a new type of nucleated freshwater pearl cultured using the same techniques that they use for south sea. Until very recently, it was thought next to impossible to nucleate a freshwater mollusc reliably to produce a round pearl with a smooth skin, but apparently a new sub-species was discovered that made it possible. That's not to say it is easy, so production of these pearls is limited to a few very specialist producers (you won't see many of these pearls around and the low production yield makes them expensive). The result is a pearl so like a AAA+ South Sea, I struggle to tell the difference. If anything the lustre is better. The natural pearl colours shown here in this necklace are however typical of freshwater pearls. The important news is that you get a South Sea look for about 15% of the equivalent South Sea pearl price. 44cm, 9ct Rose Gold clasp.
