China has harvested freshwater pearls in the form of maybe since the 13th century, and has now become the world's undisputed leader in freshwater pearl production. The first record mentioning pearls in China was from 2206 BC. The United States was also a major source of natural freshwater pearls, from the discovery of the New World, through the 19th century, until over-harvesting and increasing pollution significantly reduced the number of available pearl-forming mussels in the US.
The Appeal of Freshwater Pearls

However, they appear in a wide variety of shapes and natural colours, and they tend to be less expensive than saltwater pearls. Because freshwater pearls solid nacre, they are quite durable and are less likely to chipping. This Freshwater pearl bracelet should last you years
