Freshwater pearls are pearls found in oysters and mussels in freshwater bodies such as lakes, rivers and ponds. Like most pearls today, most freshwater pearls available for purchase are cultured. Cultured freshwater pearls are genuine pearls produced when a mussel or oyster secrets natural nacre or mother of pearl over a small irritant within its shell. The irritant has to be inserted carefully by a skilled technician.
