Freshwater pearls are small, solid, round, shiny formations that form inside aquatic organisms such as clams and snails. These pearls form when a foreign body, such as sand or a parasite, enters the host organism and irritates its tissues. In an attempt to protect the body, it secretes a substance called nacre or nacre around the foreign body, gradually creating a pearl.
Pearls can vary in size, color and quality depending on the type of mollusk and environment. Natural pearls are very valuable but they are rare and can be very expensive. On the other hand, freshwater pearls produced in specialized farms are more common and more affordable but can be just as beautiful and prized.
