Freshwater Cultured Coin Pearl Strands, White, A-Grade


The A-grade white freshwater cultured coin pearls on this strand feature flat, slightly uneven surfaces—the size, texture, and shape of each pearl varies slightly, adding interest to custom necklace and bracelet designs. String them on white cord to make a twist on 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.

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.
