Lanyard with Freshwater Pearls

We've designed a beautiful new Freshwater pearl lanyard  and it's beautiful.  Pearl lanyards are very popular with our customers and the Freshwater pearl design offers a more contemporary look.  Each section of pearls is highlighted with our silver bicone and set off by a beautiful faceted clear crystal.  We've used Miyuki clear AB seed beads for an extra sparkle. 

What are Freshwater Pearls?

Cultured Freshwater Pearls are pearls that are farmed and created using freshwater mussels.  They are produced in Japan and the US.  Japan holds a special historic value as the first country to cultivate whole freshwater pearls in Lake Biwa, using Biwa pearly mussels.  The pearl farm in Tennessee also holds special historic as it is the only freshwater pearl outside of Asia. The farm is currently a special tourish attraction.
