Cultured Freshwater Pearls are not imitation or fake (faux). They are as natural as saltwater pearls but they are farmed using freshwater mussels. They grow inside the mollusk in exactly the same way a saltwater pearl does. The majority of cultured pearls available today are from freshwater mussels and saltwater pearl oysters. The leading countries producing freshwater pearls are Japan, the United States and China.
