ALSO, ABOUT CULTURED PEARLS:
Cultured pearls are grown under tightly controlled conditions by pearl farmers. During the mid to late mid century era many cultured pearls were grown in the US for US consumption. As such, jewelry makers and goldsmiths oftentimes used cultured pearls in their designs. Because of this many fine pieces of vintage gold jewelry will contain cultured pearls.
Farmers plant a core made up of mussel shell into an oyster or mussel; as a result the oyster or mussel consequently forms a pearl around this irritant, much as they do when forming natural pearls. Yet, cultured pearls are often thought of as imitation pearls, but the two should not be confused. Cultured pearls are made of the same material much as natural pearls and take time to create, up to seven years depending on the type of pearl. Imitation pearls are often made of plastic or glass and therefore, can be manufactured quite easily and quickly. Cultured pearls can be expensive, depending on their luster, shape, and size, but are available in a range of prices.
