The A-grade white freshwater cultured semi-round pearls on this strand complement other strung elements and keep the eye moving from bead to bead. String them on white cord to make a traditional pearl necklace or pair them with other colors of pearls and beads on a complementary-color cord for a more complex, multi-color look.
Freshwater cultured pearls are cultivated in fresh water from mussels, often the triangle shell mussel (Hyriopsis cumingii), that are specially selected for their prolific production of nacre. It is not unusual for a single mussel to produce multiple pearls simultaneously. According to one legend, the pearl was formed from the tears of the goddess of love. For many, pearls are a symbol of pure heart and mind, honesty and integrity.
A-grade pearls feature surfaces that show a few insignificant blemishes. Their luster is good, exhibiting some depth.
Each package contains one temporarily strung 15"–16" strand.
