Freshwater pearls are renowned for have very fine small holes - not these ones! Sold per piece, these creamy ivory coloured pearl beads have a much larger than average hole size, approximately 1.8mm in diametre. The size of each bead varies, with an average of 7mm x 8mm to 10mm x 8mm. Some of the beads are smooth, others have ridges along them.
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.
