What Are Edison Pearls? Most freshwater pearls are nucleated by tissue, but Edison cultured pearls are nucleated with beads, exactly as saltwater pearls. The beads are implanted into mussels, selected through genetic research, with a special technique – a secret which is guarded closely. Only one pearl is cultured in each mussel, allowing for a much larger sized pearl to grow inside the shell. They have a bright luster and come in vivid colors such as white, peach, pink, gold, metallic, plum, and aubergine-purple. Traditional freshwater pearls rarely produce pearls in such large sizes and so many unique natural colors with amazing luster. Edison Pearls are of high quality; high-grade Edison pearls are perfectly round. Their sizes vary but they can become almost three-quarters of an inch, and they have a unique luster that can be compared with that of high-end saltwater pearls such as Tahitian pearls or South Sea pearls.
