Lake Biwa Pearls (Jinbo Pearl Shop)

Lake Biwa pearls have a distinctive shape that sets them apart from their typically round counterparts. These freshwater pearls, which are said to be the embodiment of Lake Biwa, require a lengthy time to produce. It takes three years to raise a clam, and another three for it to form a pearl. The pearls come in such a variety of shapes and colors that each one possesses a beauty unlike anything else in the world.
And it is that beauty which delights the eye of the beholder.
