Truly beautiful pearls. These are a very dark grey – not quite black.
These really do look like the real thing – a strand of real pearls this size would set you back hundreds and hundreds of dollars!
You are buying ONE 38 mm (16 inch) strand of these fake pearls. There are approx 50 of these lovely pearls on a strand.
South Sea Shell beads .. though South Sea Shell beads are indeed synthetic pearls, they are not made out of plastic, wax, glass, or any other of the more inexpensive materials many synthetic pearls are made from. Ours are lab-created from South Sea oyster shells, which are cut and pulverized and shaped into perfectly round and beautiful shell beads. The nucleus starts with the fluted giant clam shell material (in most cases). Then it goes through a high-tech and very complex coating and heating procedure until a high gloss is reached. These practically flawless beads are as beautiful and luxurious as real cultured pearls, yet you can aquire them at a fraction of the price.Tags: sea shell, south sea, shell beads
