Real freshwater pearls with bead-nucleated that are in very nice round shape and hardly any flaws and very nice luster. Best value for your money if you make your own jewelry.
The strand is approximately 15-15.5inch long. There are about 45-46 of 8-10mm round bead-nucleated freshwater pearls on each strand.
Freshwater pearls used to be tissue-nucleated. Only since 2009, with new techniques and technology, these freshwater pearls have been successfully cultured with a bead nucleus to produce a very nice round shape to be comparable with Japanese pearls in its roundness, but at a fraction of its price.
Only black and grey colored pearls are available right now.
