Pearl > Intro | Grading | Cultured | Fresh Water | Akoya | South Seas | Tahitian | Pearl Care


All Cultured pearls can be broken down into two major categories - Freshwater cultured pearls and Saltwater cultured pearls. Within these two groupings there is an almost endless variety of shapes, sizes and colors.

Freshwater cultured pearls as the name suggests are grown in lakes and rivers and generally inexpensive compared to their saltwater counter parts. Although cheaper then most saltwater pearls they are fast growing in popularity because of the wide range of colors and sizes that are available on the market today.
