Everything You Need to Know About Freshwater Pearls

Everything You Need to Know About Freshwater Pearls

It’s been a while since we spoke about freshwater pearls. If you’re a pearl-lover, knowing every little detail about pearls only makes them more fascinating. Everybody knows pearls come from oysters and oysters are usually found in the sea – that begs the question: what are freshwater pearls?

Freshwater pearls, as the name suggests, originate from freshwater bodies such as lakes, ponds and rivers. These stunning pearls come from mussels and not oysters. Freshwater pearls can be both natural and cultured – which is why you should be careful to check your facts before investing in these stones.

Freshwater pearls and seawater pearls are quite different. Apart from the organism these pearls come from, they tend to vary in size, lustre, overtones and shape. Seawater pearls are considered rare and are often perfectly spherical in shape – which in popular opinion makes them superior to freshwater pearls. But freshwater pearls have their own beauty, a shiny outer layer and shapelessness that is beautiful. Because freshwater pearls are more widely available, they are also more affordable.

Most freshwater pearls are not as perfectly circular as is the case seawater pearls. In fact, in China they are called rice pearls because their shape mimics rice grains. And it is this shapelessness of freshwater pearls that people often love.

Sometimes freshwater pearls take the shape of vegetables, animals, faces and other exotic things. For example, there are some pearls that take the shape of a cross and such pearls are sold and bought for huge amounts of money. Mostly, the pearls are of an irregular oval shape commonly called Biwa or the Keshi pearls.

Freshwater pearls are also easier to culture when compared to seawater pearls. This is why there is never a dearth of freshwater pearls in the market. This doesn’t mean they are not precious anymore. Until recently, Japan was the major producer of freshwater cultured pearls. But the lakes eventually got too polluted to be used for this purpose and hence, the country that produces most freshwater pearls is China.

These are all the facts we have for you in this article. Be sure to check back with us in a week or so – as we keep updating our blog. Also, we are having a massive sale on the Rakhi collection on our website – www.jpearls.com, you can get 30% by using the code EXTRAJPRK30 at checkout.

Why are rubies red?

You’d be surprised to know that rubies get their beautiful red colour from impurities that are present in the gemstone. It’s intriguing how an impurity gives this gem it’s most defining property. Now, we could leave it at that or draw a life lesson from it. (We love drawing life lessons from things so here it is). Just like it is with the ruby, our impurities or imperfections make us who we are, they make us – us.

Now back to the science-y part of things. Rubies are a kind of crystal called corundum, which is a form of aluminum oxide. The presence of chromium in this crystal is what gives it its red colour. The chromium impurities absorb specific colors of light, only allowing red light to pass through the stone. The redness of the ruby depends on the amount of chromium present in it.

The amount of chromium in a corundum can also be altered. The ruby can be treated and its impurities removed, which leaves us with a clear crystal or more chromium can be added to it, thus increasing the intensity of its colour. The presence of different impurities and elements in the corundum gives the crystal different colours, for example, the presence of iron and titanium in a corundum creates a sapphire.

World’s Largest Freshwater Pearl Sold!

worlds largest freshwater pearls

The world’s largest fresh water pearl, known as “The Sleeping Lion” was sold last Thursday (31st May) at an auction for the whopping price of Rs. 2.5 crores (appx)! This auction, conducted by The Venduehuis auction house in The Hague, Netherlands, marked the first sale of this pearl in 240 years.

The Sleeping Lion pearl, which is 7 cms long and weighs more than 153 gms, gets its name from its unusual shape and is said to have formed in China between 1700 and 1760. Despite the Qing dynasty’s ban on exporting large pearls, The Sleeping Lion found its way to Europe through the Dutch East India Company. Its first owner is thought to be Hendrik Coenraad Sander, accountant general of the Company.

After the accountant general’s demise in 1778, the pearl was auctioned and acquired for Catherine the Great (Empress of Russia from 1762-1796). The exact whereabouts of the pearl after Catherine the Great are unknown. The pearl is said to have been owned by many a merchants, jewellers and aristocrats until it was acquired in 1979 by the Amsterdam Pearl Society – who auctioned this pearl last Thursday. The Sleeping Lion was bought by a Japanese trader according to Agence France-Presse reports; this is all that is known about the new owner of the world’s largest fresh water pearl.
