You Ask …We Answer.
What Do Black Freshwater Pearls Look Like?
Black Freshwater pearls are amazing! These colors are the result of a permanent color-treatment (most typically dye). Their body colors are usually a dark “Denim” blue color or a near jet black.
Black Freshwater pearls shimmer with multi-colored and iridescent “peacock”, green, blue-green, violet and copper. Some strands may be a uniform blue-green all over.
These colorful and striking pearls range in size from 6.0-7.0mm up through large 10.0mm sizes. Their shapes can be anything from funky baroques and potato shapes to the more traditional near-round to round pearls.
