40cm strand of medium rice shaped B grade fresh water pearl beads. Note that the size of bead on each strand varies considerably, with an average of 8mm x 7mm, and a small hole (approximately 0.6mm wide). There are approximately 50 pearls per strand, available in a pale creamy peachy apricot colour.
Freshwater pearl beads are a natural product that have been created by teams of technicians implanting donor tissue into freshwater mussels. The mussels coat the foreign matter with nacre, producing a shiny lustrous pearl. This process is done on a mass scale (compared to that of the saltwater pearls), resulting in an inexpensive product enjoyed by many.
Please note that colours and shapes within semi-precious gemstones vary from strand to strand.
