Freshwater Pearl Necklaces
China is the largest producer of cultured freshwater pearls in the world - accounting for over 98% of all global production. And of the more than 1,000+ tons of cultured freshwater pearls harvested each year, only about 2% are good enough to receive an 'A' grade or higher. Of those pearls only about 5% are high enough in quality to receive a AA+ grade or higher. Virtually perfectly round with high luster, these pearls are the best of the best.
