Freshwater Pearls

Freshwater pearls are typically found in lakes and rivers in China, and are produced in mollusks called mussels. Freshwater pearls have recently revolutionized the pearl industry by producing beautiful and lustrous natural white and pink pearls at a price that is a fraction of Akoya and smaller sized south sea pearls. Although freshwater pearls are plentiful, The Pearl Source selects only the highest quality freshwater to compile our strands and jewelry.

PEARL PENDANTS

Buying Guide & Tips for Pearl Pendants:

A pearl pendant is a great way to achieve an elegant pearl look without having to wear a full strand of pearls. It also serves as the perfect gift for that special woman in your life. When you purchase a pearl pendant from The Pearl Source, you have the ability to completely customize the pendant to your exact specifications.

 

One of the most significant aspects of your purchase is understanding and evaluating pearl quality. Since we only offer our customers the highest quality pearls available, The Pearl Source only sells the top two grades of pearls in each respective pearl type. Before making your selection, be sure to educate yourself on the different pearl qualities available to you, and what they involve. A top quality pearl with little to no blemishes and high luster luster can make a pendant look incredible on your neck.

 

Another important factor to consider when buying your pearl pendant is chain length.  If you prefer the pendant to sit higher up on your neck, we advise customers to go with a 16” chain.  The standard chain size for most of our pendants is 18” which sits slightly below the collar bone.  If you are looking for a longer look and want the jewelry piece to sit more towards the middle of your chest, we suggest selecting the 20” chain option.

 

Our experienced team at The Pearl Source can also match any additional jewelry pieces you purchase with your pendant, whether it’s a pearl ring, pearl bracelet, or set of matching pearl earrings.

The website was organized enough for me to learn how to buy a pearl. This was the most important part of the process because this is the first pearl I've purchased. It made cross referencing the material with other sources fast and easy. Thank you!

Excellent kind of pearl. Gold chain very thin and looks very weak.
