Chinese Freshwater Pearls
by: Anonymous

Good Morning Dee,

With reference to your Chinese Freshwater Pearls.

In the early 1990s round and semi-round Chinese Freshwater Cultured Pearls - FWCP from Chinese producers emerged as a low cost alternative to Akoya Pearls. This development caused great concern in the Japanese industry. A strand of round Chinese FWCPs cost 10-30% of a similar size Akoya necklace. In addition , as with the C. Plicata mussel, several tissue insertions could be made in a single mollusk resulting in multiple pearls from each mussel.

However, after years of quality improvements, the best Chinese FWCPs are able to compete with top products from Japan and other areas.

Have you considered an auction site for selling your FW pearl jewelry?

Best Wishes

Yvonne Hammouda-Eyre
