Metallic Turquoise Rice Pearls

6x6mm Irradiated Fresh Water Pearl, IHD:0.4mm

Unit: Strand
$18.00 USD

This glorious color comes from manipulating the freshwater pearls during the manufacturing and dying process, but somehow the pearl farmers have mastered it and we’re not going to complain! In the case of these bright turquoise oval pearls, the beads seem to glow from within. 

Machines have never manufactured real pearls; for centuries oysters created natural sea pearls around irritants that made their way inside the mollusk’s shell. In 1893, Kokichi Mikimoto in Japan figured out how to replicate this mystery and created the first cultured pearls. Today, freshwater pearl farms in China have mastered color and larger sizes that are sold to jewelry designers like us. Unfortunately, availability is dwindling rapidly. 

These pearls would look great in your next Ming Design or Cultured Girls.

Bead holes fit Softflex 0.14, Size 4 Griffin, 24 gauge wire, or Micro C-lon doubled. All are great choices for stringing and wire work.

Sold by the strand (15-16 inches)/approximately 58 beads.
