Pearls they never go out of fashion. They are the classic jewellery you need and what better way to invest in them than to buy freshwater pearls to add a touch of vintage style to your look.Freshwater pearls are available in a variety of shapes, colours and even sizes, making them both attractive in pricing and preferred by jewellery designers, shoppers and pearl connoisseurs alike. They differ from a seawater pearl in that it is cultivated in freshwater lakes and ponds. Championed in the early 20th century by French fashion icon, Coco Chanel, pearls have always been here to stay. Freshwater pearls are known as the most common of all pearls and are produced in mussels in freshwater like a man-made lake or river bed. They take a shorter duration to form and are produced in larger quantities. For example, one can harvest as many as 30 pearls from a single mussel.
