When you’re shopping on a budget, you may notice that many of the bracelets in your price range use Freshwater pearls.
That’s because Freshwater pearls are relatively easy to produce, so they’re often much more affordable than other types. These stunning pearls come in a beautiful variety of natural colors and are a fantastic choice for anyone looking for quality at a good price.
