All of our pearls are untreated and coloring is 100% natural. There is an overabundance of Chinese Freshwater Pearls on the market. Many of which have been dyed or irradiated to imitate the natural coloring of Tahitian or South Sea Cultured Pearls. Freshwater Pearls come naturally in cream, off white, pink, mauve, and lavender, but never in the Tahitian or Golden South Sea Pearl color range. When encountering the word "genuine" beware!
The Jewelers Vigilance Committee, and other American consumer groups, recognize the word genuine only when it applies to naturally formed pearls: pearls found in shells without human intervention. "Authentic" is the word to be used when it comes to cultured Pearls.Shell Pearls and Shell beads.
