Glass Pearl Necklaces
A More Contemporary Approach To Pearl Costume Jewellery.
Glass - or "faux" pearls, can be are far more flexible than their freshwater pearl sisters, as they are mass-produced to standard sizes and shapes.and can be easily dyed to ivory, white, or virtually any colour. As you can see below, glass pearls tend to be used in more contemporary-style necklaces and are frequently mixed with other materials. The glass pearls used in this section are created by coating the glass bead - usually perfectly round or teardrop-shaped - in a substance known as "pearlessence". This is a compound which contains crushed pearls, so it retains the lustre of real pearls. Glass pearl necklaces are similar in weight to real pearls and look deceptively like them, so only you - and your bank balance - will know the difference!
