What is a South Sea 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 South Sea 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.
