Pearl Facts: These are not plastic pearls or ones that

The sixteenth century in England better known as the Pearl Age,
indicating that wearing pearls showed prestige and class by those who
wore pearls at that time.
Pearls started becoming more
fashionable in the 1900s and particularly the 1920s following the
manufacturing of Cultured Pearls by Mikimoto in 1893; a Japanese Noodle
maker at the time.
As time progressed larger necklaces, usually
worn in strands were around 60 inches or longer with them shortening up
as time goes on. Getting shorter and shorter. The Roaring 20s as they
call it, was quite popular with people wearing long strands of pearls;
though not as popular in today's age.
Pearls also bring out the
colors in people's eyes as well; such a Blue Necklace or even a pendant;
making colored pearls quite popular yet elegantly stylish. In today's
world you can get any type of color in most pearls now days; you name
the color; if they don't have it, it can be made. This is not to say
that all Colored Pearls are fake. On the contrary, dying a Freshwater
Cultured Pearl is no less natural than one that has not been dyed.

Seas, but they can run you into the 100s of dollars and even thousands.
And finding acceptable matches at any larger size; is a problem in
itself as the pearl must stay in the oyster for longer periods of time
before it's harvested. Environmental issues, natural, and otherwise,
create extreme problems for natural pearls the longer they remain in the
shell. As such they will be extremely expensive.
