Cultured Freshwater Pearl Grading
Probably the single most important thing to understand when learning about Pearl Grading in order to make an educated purchase decision is this: it is impossible to compare grades and grading systems from one company to another.
Unlike diamond grading, there is no standardized grading system for freshwater pearls. Every company in the world that grades and sells freshwater pearls is using a system that they themselves devised and created. Every system is subjective and every system is unique.
The following is the grading system we adhere to for freshwater pearls.
|Freshadama™||Freshadama-grade pearls are loose-grade pearls, or pearls that have been selected individually prior to drilling and polishing for their exceptional quality characteristics. These pearls are typically sold wholesale as single pearls and pairs, undrilled. Freshadama™ strands are composed of these pearls; drilled and matched by us.
