Memoire brings you authentic fresh water pearl for all those real women who believe in real self. Ideally, a pearl is formed within the soft tissue – or mantle – of a living shelled mollusk. Layers of an iridescent substance called nacre, or calcium carbonate in a crystalline form create them. Although almost any mollusk can produce pearls, very few create pearls that are of a quality to be used in jewellery.
The main differences between freshwater and saltwater pearls and glass pearls reside in a few factors : size, intensity of luster, quality of complexion and roundness.
