Topics: Pearls, Grading

Q.
Only a few of your pearls indicate a grade in the description. Does that mean that the others are D grade or below? Thanks.

Cultured freshwater pearls said to be dyed would be C- grade or less. At Fire Mountain Gems and Beads® we grade our natural and bleached cultured freshwater pearls including white, peach and mauve.

In the past we did not grade dyed pearls or pearl mixes unless they were featured on our catalog covers. Now we grade all of our pearl and gemstone beads.
