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: A variety of corundum (aluminum oxide), Rubies and Sapphires are extremely hard. Ruby and Sapphire are actually the same stone. Ruby is the red form, while any other color of the rainbow is called Sapphire. It is common practice to heat treat Rubies and Sapphires to enhance color. Ruby is the July birthstone and associated with numerous metaphysical properties. Ruby is associated with blood flow, courage, and of course love. Sent to us by our vendors as "Ruby", it's safer to call this cheerful pink stone "Pink Sapphire".
