In Vintage there has always been a wide variety of simulated pearls available. These range from plastic, to ceramic and every media available. The highest quality ones to look for are glass, which are then coated with many layers of a pearlized finish. They are often individually knotted, which shows the piece is painstakingly handmade. The added benefit is that the pearls don't slide around! The lustre resembles the real thing, as does the weight. I bought a 50s collection of these beauties and am offering their timeless elegance to you!
