As compared to the saltwater pearls, the price of the freshwater ones is quite low. This difference in price is mostly because of two reasons that include the quality of the pearls and also the pearl quantity that is being produced from single mollusk. A single saltwater oyster can normally provide one, two or mostly four pearls in a single time whereas the freshwater mollusks are seen to yield almost twenty to twenty five different ones in a single go. These two varieties compromise the real pearls. The freshwater ones are cultivated in bays, lakes and rivers that are seen to have freshwater.
