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: Set your designs a cut above the rest with the new and revolutionary Xilion facets of SWAROVSKI ELEMENTS article 5328 bicones. SWAROVSKI ELEMENTS is giving their classic bicone article 5301 a face lift. The Xilion facets are copyright protected and unique only to SWAROVSKI ELEMENTS. The copyright protected facets of the new Xilion bicone ensure that your genuine SWAROVSKI ELEMENTS design will be more easily distinguished from designs using inferior crystals! Perfect cuts and alternating large and small facets of the Xilion bicone result in more intense light reflection, than the 5301 bicone, and give the Xilion bicone an incomparable brilliance. The increased number of facets improve the appearance of the crystal, while the rounder center line improves overall wearability of the product.
During the transition phase between article 5301 and 5328 SWAROVSKI ELEMENTS will be replacing the 5301 with 5328 one color at a time. As their supply of 5301 runs out they will be sending out the Xilion 5328 in its place. The 5301 and 5328 styles were designed to be used interchangeably, so the transition will cause no negative impact in your designs.
