Natural Beauty of Freshwater Pearls 

Freshwater pearls come from Philippine lakes and rivers. These gems are formed inside various mollusks such as mussels. Despite being smaller in size than other pearl types, freshwater pearls are celebrated for their classic beauty and versatility. Said to symbolize love, purity, and harmony, they come in various hues, from white to pastels, and are a popular choice that complements modern taste and style. 

Kultura Filipino proudly offers an extensive selection of freshwater pearl jewelry in various styles, from opera-length necklaces to gold-plated pearl studs. Simple yet elegant, these are a jewelry collection staple that effortlessly complements any occasion, whether it's a day at the office or dinner with loved ones.

Exquisite Elegance of South Sea Pearls

Of all Philippine pearl types, South Sea pearls are the most sought-after. Dubbed the “Queen of Gems,” these pearls are cultivated in Palawan from the Pinctada Maxima oyster. Symbols of rare elegance and beauty, South Sea pearls are renowned for their exceptional size and lustrous shades of white and gold.  

Our exquisite collection of South Sea pearls features minimalist pendants, sophisticated drop earrings, and more.
