When I was a kid, I saw freshwater pearls for the first time. I could not understand why anyone would want freshwater pearls when they were sub-par to the luster, luminescence, sheen, and pearlescence of saltwater pearls. Other than the shape, these look like saltwater pearls. They have the luster, pearlescence, luster, and color of saltwater pearls. Pearls (approx 6x7mm), gold filled components.
