    Pearl Beads

    Unlike any other jewel, which is dug out of the earth and then cut and polished, nothing has to be done to bring out the inner beauty of the pearl. Pearls are what they are - moonlight caught in the tears of mermaids.

    Jewels of the Ocean

    Unlike any other gemstone, which is unearthed from the ground and then cut and polished, pearls require no enhancement to reveal their inner beauty. Pearls are intrinsically exquisite; they are akin to moonlight captured in the tears of mermaids. These lustrous and beautiful gems are often referred to as the treasures of the ocean, standing as one of nature's most remarkable wonders, shrouded in mystique and fascination.

    In the Middle Ages, only royalty and nobility had the privilege of wearing pearls, and they have since become symbols of affluence and perfection. Some say that pearls symbolize tears, but only for those who don't possess them.

    Freshwater pearls are the natural produce of mussels residing in sandbanks within lakes, rivers, or creeks. The pearls used in Trollbeads are cultured freshwater pearls. To acquire their distinct shape, these pearls mature within a mussel for a period of four to five years. The process commences by introducing a tiny fleck from another mussel into the host. With time, the mussel envelops it in mother-of-pearl, transforming it into a beautiful pearl. The pearl's colour is influenced by external conditions, the mussel's outer hue, and its internal structure. Pearls are indeed nature's enchanting marvels.

    Given that pearls are already perfect when found in nature, minimal preparation is required before offering them for sale. A specialized robot drills holes in the pearls, ensuring that the process does not fragment the pearls. Once the holes are of the correct size, each pearl is affixed with a silver core, a task performed with precision and care using a specialized tool for each individual pearl.
