Pearlfection Pearl Gemstone & Information | Gemopedia by JTV | Gemopedia™

Pearlfection Pearl

Pearlfection(TM) is simulated pearl jewelry that is the perfect marriage between science and nature. Manufacturing starts with the same identical mother-of-pearl nucleus that is used to culture salt water pearls. Then, manufacturers apply to the nucleus a proprietary solution that perfectly mimics a pearl's nacre, creating the perfect pearl simulant. Pearlfection(TM) pearls look, feel and weigh just like a cultured pearl.
