Frieden AG Creative Design - Since 1898 - Switzerland - Cultured Pearls - Freshwater

Today, most of them are grown in China in oysters called Hyriopsis Cumingi.

Sizes are mostly from 6 to 13 mm in an almost unlimited variety of shapes and fine pastel colours including white, pink, purple, orange and salmon.

Almost all freshwater cultured pearls are without a nucleus. Up to 40 pearls per oyster can be cultivated which explains their rather inexpensive price levels.
