These are 12mm AAAA graded Southsea shell (mojorca/replica) pearls which are perfect round shape with high luster.
These half-drilled Southsea shell pearls are in such perfect shape and luster that are requested repeatedly by our jewelry designers as they often use them to make rings, earrings and pendants although we would have preferred not to carry them to be confused with all of our other real pearls. Please read and understand what is a seashell pearl below. You can also choose the jewelry accessories from our Pearl Clasp Findings department to create your own pearl gifts. The hole is approximately 1mm in size.
Price listed is for one pearl only.
For a limited time, we are selling 12mm white fully drilled pearls at the same price.
What is a Southsea Shell Pearl?
Shell pearls, which are marketed under many brand names, are a pearling industry term for simulated, or replica pearls made from mother of pearl. In the case of our Southsea Shell pearls, they’re shell pearls specifically made to simulate South Seas cultured pearls. Shell pearls are made in a factory rather than grown inside an oyster or mussel. They’re considered to be the best quality replicas you can get because they are made from shell, not plastic or glass.
