18th Century Faux Pearls - a mini history


Faux pearls were already being developed in the 18th century. Real pearls were extremely expensive and  exclusive to royalty and the rich.

Even so, many well to do ladies wore replicas of their real pearls, and kept their priceless pearls under lock and key.
For more about 18th Century faux pearls read this lovely  post, 'Roman Pearls for the 18th Century Lady':
