What are freshwater and salt water
Freshwater pearls are from freshwater while saltwater
pearls are from saltwater. The process of natural freshwater pearls
occurring is pretty much the same as that of saltwater pearls,
except ones occur in mussels and the other in oysters.
The catalyst inserted to the oyster
is just a very tiny piece of another oyster's mantle tissue instead of shell beads.
This foreign material would be entered into a mussel, and to reduce and resist
the irritation, the mollusk coats the intruder with the same secretion it uses
for shell-building, nacre.
Freshwater pearls are totally different
from any of other gemstones. They are similar to saltwater pearls
in terms of both of them are made of nature, but difference occurs
as freshwater pearls are almost seedless, quite similar to the
wild natural pearl. A variety of factors determine shapes and
quality of pearls such as the raising of infant oyster, the health
of oyster itself, ingredients in the water, water temperature,
the inserting skill of workers, fertilization, diseases prevention, etc.
How freshwater pearls
To culture freshwater pearls,
workers would slightly open mussels shells, cut small slits into the mantle tissue
inside both shells, and insert small pieces of live mantle tissue from another
mussel into those slits. In freshwater mussels that insertion alone is sufficient
to start nacre production.
Pearls are composed entirely
of nacre, just like their natural freshwater and natural saltwater counterparts.

modern technology and cutting edge techniques have been used for processing pearls

pearl customers are getting the big bonus."
