Which shape will you choose?

f.w Pearl SHAPESIf you think freshwater pearls only come in 3 different shapes, round, droplet and long rectangles, then I am about to open ‘Pandora’s Box’!!
Stars
Crosses
Angel Wings…
These are only a few of the freshwater pearl shapes you can have.

But how are the freshwater pearl shapes created?
The diverse pearl shapes are achievable because of their cultivation process. The pearl farm technician will extract a tiny piece of mantel which will contain epithelial cells from the donor mussel, cut it to the desired shape and and place it into the host mussel.
Once the tissue has triggered the pearl formation it will slowly be covered in layer upon layer of nacre, a very thin translucent material that gives the pearl its distinctive lustre.

Here at Coleman Douglas Pearls we have several pearl necklaces, pearl earrings and pearl bracelets that include a variety of pearl shapes, adding a young, playful element to the timeless classic gem.

We have a stunning cultured freshwater seed pearl necklace with a white pearl cross pendant perfect for everyday.
As well as white pearl crosses we also have a beautiful selection of naturally coloured pink crosses strung on transparent light pink silk ribbons, that give the appearance of the pearl cross floating while being worn.
