What is a cheap pearl?

Most affordable pearl earrings are made with cultured pearls and alternative metal such as silver, while others are really expensive pearl jewelry that are simply sold cheap because the supplier can afford to do so.

What are cultured pearls?

Cultured pearls, like natural ones, grow inside a mollusk but are made with human intervention.

A bead used as a mold for the pearl’s shape and size is inserted into the mollusk and is then naturally coated by a substance called nacre. The mollusk’s way of fending off foreign objects in its body is the important process of creating a pearl.

Cultured pearls can either be made with a freshwater or saltwater mollusk.

These mollusks are classified according to their habitats. You can find a freshwater mollusk in rivers or lakes while saltwater ones are found in oceans. Saltwater pearls are only made by oysters.

The Akoya, Tahitian and South Sea saltwater pearls are the most popular and most valuable among all cultured pearls.
