Did You Know?
- Art Deco is a decorative style that reached its height in the 1920's and 30's and emphasized abstract designs and geometric patterns.
- Freshwater pearls are found in fresh water oysters that inhabit rivers and lakes.
- The most well-known are those from lake Biwa, a large freshwater lake in Japan.
- These too are cultured by the Japanese and now the Chinese, although large quantities are produced naturally.
- Freshwater pearls are not as expensive as salt water pearls, mainly because they do not have as many natural enemies, and also one oyster may yield many pearls.
- These pearls have a high lustre and occur naturally with very attractive hues.
