is Japan's largest, most well-known freshwater lake, located in Shiga prefecture. Lake Biwa
was said to be frequently referred to in literature, like poetry and historical accounts of battles, being proximate to the ancient capital. It was also once the source of incredibly lustrous coin-shaped pearls which the company, Yvel
, a highly-acclaimed jeweler, get their pearls for their well-known Biwa
Pearl Jewelry Collection. However, in 1985, the entire lake was designated as a protected Quasi-National Park. Nevertheless, Yvel
still offers the same unique and exclusive line with the help of its connection with two major Fresh Water pearl farms. The Biwa
Pearl Jewelry Collection is a beautiful 18k
gold collection set with diamonds, enhancing the natural color and beauty of the round, pear, drop and square shape pearls.
