Freshwater Pearls

Unlike other gems, the pearl is born of water and living creatures. Pearls begin as a foreign body embedded within a mollusk's shell. The animal's defense against the foreign body is to form a protective layer of nacre around the intruder. The culturing process simply entails planting a "seed" within the mollusk, normally either a plastic bead or a small piece of shell, nature takes its course and another pearl is born. Our cultured freshwater pearls come in an ever growing variety of shapes, sizes and colors, so whatever your fashion preference you are sure to find the pearl to suit your needs. Ancient beliefs about the origin of the pearl include: moonlight filled dewdrops and Aphrodite's tears of joy. Although not technically a stone, pearl is one of June's birthstones. Currently, the International Commission of Colored Gemstones (CIBJO) recognizes only five organic (once living material) gemstones: Ammolite, amber, pearl, jet, and coral. Also be sure to check out our freshwater pearl mixtures and our flawlessly crafted glass pearls by Jablonex and crystal pearls by Swarovski.

Description: Liquid silver and gold beads are both beautiful and popular. They are similar in shape to bugle beads, and can be either straight or twisted. The super fine silver tube shaped beads are also commonly known as silver heishi, although heishi is most widely known to be a disc shape. Liquid silver beads can be used as spacers, but are used prevalently in Native American designs along with turquoise beads. They also look incredible alone, strung in multiple strands in either a twisted design or waterfall necklace, displaying a shimmering ripple effect. If you decide to create a shimmering multi-strand liquid silver necklace, expect to use a lot of these tiny beads (the results are well worth it)! Also, you will want to terminate your strands with a sterling silver cone.
There are approximately 1,500 of these little treasures per troy ounce.
