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. They’re made in a process similar to how pearls are cultured, although these 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 as they’re made out of the same material that cultured pearls are.

You can find simulated pearls made from glass, or plastic as well but while they are cheaper they can’t compare quality wise to shell pearls. For instance, you won’t usually find glass or plastic beads that have the same beautiful multi-colored hues you’ll see with some of our shell pearls.

We use the latest in pearl production technology to ensure the durability of our shell pearls. Each shell pearl should keep its shine and color for many years to come, unaffected by sweat, perfume, and other substances that would normally damage cultured pearls. So you can be sure when you buy shell pearl that you’re making an investment in jewelry that will last and not be as fickle as cultured pearls are. As well, because shell pearls are man made we can offer them in a whole new world of colors, shapes and sizes you might not easily find (if at all) in any cultured pearls.
If you don’t see what you want on our website you can special order any sort of necklace, bracelet or other piece of pearl jewelry you’d like with our shell pearls. Just let us know the shape, size, and color of pearl you want, as well as (if applicable) the necklace/bracelet length, setting, or choice of pearl clasp that you’d like and we can get a price back to you usually within 1-2 business days.
