Hi Kelly… we are here to draw all you confusion. Pearl is divided into two categories- beaded cultured pearls and freshwater cultured pearls.
The pearls belong to former category and biwa pearl is the part of the latter one. Biwa pearl is named after the lake, Biwa in which it grows.

There is a tradition, maybe European, that giving pearl or opal is very bad luck, if you give it the receiver must pay a penny or sth. I had an opal from mother, from her mother, I think it was very bad luck for us, now I paid .01c. Lately people are more cruel to the animal like mussel that produces the pearl, they cut its soft body, they put up to 25 irritants into the cuts, it can get disease from the cuts. So pearl = human boldness, power.
