Freshwater pearls are a popular alternative to the more expensive Tahitian and South Sea varieties. The Calamansi jewellery collection, founded by Hong Kong-based sisters Caroline Caer and Agnes Caer-Piras, mixes coloured stones and freshwater pearls in chunky rings, long necklaces and chandelier earrings. Add glamour to your party dress with a multistrand necklace with aquamarine (below; HK$4,800) or go for the simple Chrysoprase and freshwater pearl pendant on a thin silver choker (above; HK$2,900) for a modern look.
