Seize the opportunity to see nature produce a gorgous gem. Tennessee’s official state gem—the freshwater pearl—is grown at the only freshwater pearl-culturing farm on the North American continent. A remarkable product of nature, the iridescent freshwater pearl emerges from the indigenous Washboard mussel.
The organic gem stone-culturing is found in the pristine embayment known as Birdsong Creek, which runs off beautiful Tennessee River's picturesque Kentucky Lake. Take a trip to Camden in West Tennessee to tour the pearl farm and shop for your own freshwater pearl.
Birdsong Resort is the home of the Tennessee River Freshwater Pearl Farm. Gorgeous strings of freshwater pearls are available for sale at Birdsong Resort and Marina. Prices generally range from $35.00 to $1,500.00.
