There are seldom 100% pure natural pearls on market now, and most of so-called natural pearl are artificial cultured.
Usually the pearls can bedivided into two parts—Seawater Pearl and Freshwater Pearl. Generally speaking, fresh
water pearl beads have a growth period about 4~5 years.
The longer they grow, the bigger they will be. The quality will vary due to the different growth environment, water quality
and mother shell or nacre.At Godbead, there are two kinds of freshwater pearl: Grade A & Grade B.
They are different in size, shape, luster and surface perfection. Grade A isbest with high quality while Grade B’s quality is plain.

|Luster||With light reflection on the smooth surface.||Obscure reflection on the smooth surface.||Luster is the most remarkable charm of pearl beads and excellent beads must have powerful luster with rainbow-like color.|
|Surface Perfection||It is hard to see the flaws on the surface by eye||It’s clear to see the flaws on the surface which is about 1/4 of the total area.||Just like other precious stones, pearls also have flaws. The fewer flaws, the higher quality. The flaws always distribute on the surface, such as protuberance, line, stain, gap, chip, split, nick and so on. Of all the flaws, gap and split have the heaviest effect on the quality of pearls. If the flaws are unclear, the pearls will have high quality.|
