New Fresh Water Pearls
Freshwater Cultured Pearls are farmed using natural freshwater mussels, there is a small piece of sand or shell that is inserted into the shell of a live mollusk, that little piece of sand or shell acts as an irritant and makes the mollusk secrete what is called nacre. This is the iridescent coating that builds up over time covering the irritant to create the pearl. Metaphysically, pearls are known to calm and center the wearer. Pearls are often seen as a symbol of purity, loyalty, faith, and truth and is known as a "stone of sincerity." It brings truth to situations and loyalty to a cause. These qualities makes pearls a great choice for wedding, ceremonial, or prayer jewelry!
