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: These beautiful antique style Czech Cathedral Beads from Preciosa Ornela appear to have built in textured bead caps! Crafted from superior quality Czech glass, these beads are molded into their desired shape and then coated in a color, usually silver or gold, but sometimes other hues. The bead is then faceted and fire polished around the center, leaving the ends coated in color to create a stunning glass treasure! Some cathedral beads are not dipped in color, but still display the attractive texturing on the ends. Cathedral beads are perfect for adding a tasteful vintage feel to your jewelry designs. Cathedral beads also are quite popular in rosary designs.
