The Freshwater pearl looks remarkably similar to the Akoya pearl, but Freshwater pearls are available for almost 1/5 the price of Akoya pearls. The only tradeoff is that Freshwater pearls are generally smaller, less symmetrical, and not as well matched when strung on a strand. But if you're looking for pearls at an outstanding value, Freshwater pearls are the perfect gift.
Freshwater cultured pearls can be created in a spectrum of colours. Many popular Colours - white, pink, orange, and other pastels - can be achieved through natural means, including the pearl mollusc's genetics, what they eat, and the amount and type of trace metals in the cultivating environment.
It is a widely-accepted practice to treat or irradiate Freshwater pearls in order to achieve a particular or unusual colour, and equally common to treat Freshwater pearls to create a more evenly-coloured strand. Pearl colours should always be chosen to complement the wearer's complexion and wardrobe preferences.
From a value standpoint, when selecting coloured pearls it is important to understand if the colour is natural or the result of some post-harvesting treatment. For example, Tahitian pearls, cultivated in black lipped oysters, are the only naturally occurring charcoal to black pearls. It should be made clear to you that other pearls exhibiting these colours have been treated, and that fact reflected in a lower cost.
