Our freshwater cultured pearls are authentic real pearls. They are made exactly the same way a natural pearl is in that a pearl oyster secretes the same mineral and protein around an irritant. The difference is that in a cultured pearl, the irritant is introduced by man rather than nature. To make a pearl, workers actually surgically implant a piece of tissue in freshwater pearl mussels, or a piece of tissue plus a polished bead (made from the shell of a freshwater mussel) into a marine pearl oyster.
