Freshwater pearls are the most commonly found pearls, and they come in a range of sizes and colours, from white and cream to pink and lavender.

Akoya pearls are the classic Japanese pearls, known for their high lustre and round shape. They are typically white or cream-coloured and are often used in classic pearl necklaces.
