Freshwater Pearl Necklaces
Timeless and Elegant.
From the ancient Egyptians, Greeks and Romans to the present day, freshwater pearls have remained the most desirable "jewel", but until the early 1900s, they were accessible only to the rich and famous. Fortunately, with the creation cultured pearls – where an irritant is manually added into the pearly mussel to create the pearl - there are more to go around. MAJ freshwater pearls come from the waters of Lake Taihu where they are hand-picked to reflect that special glow and delicate rainbow shimmer that is the trademark of a high quality freshwater pearl. Subtle, understated, and oh-so-elegant, MAJ freshwater pearl costume jewellery creates the perfect finishing touch for everything from wedding dress to office suit. The pendants and crosses in this section are set in Sterling Silver with a Sterling Silver chain and tick all the boxes for those who adopt a" less is more" approach to costume jewellery. All arrive gift-wrapped.
