John Latendresse created his pearl farm in 1980, after extensive research for ideal conditions for pearl production. He and Bob Keast implanted hundreds of Tennessee River Washboard Mussels with small pieces of mussel shells and set them off in nets in the water. After a five-year wait, the mussels were pulled up and cracked open, yielding a harvest of freshwater pearls. Some Tennesseans make a living as divers, swimming to the river bottom to pull the mussels up. Visit Birdsong Resort, where you will find gorgeous pearls, the farm, museum and marina.Find Your Pearl
