I am still not used to the new set up and just can't find the information I want Can anyone tell me when South Sea pearls were first cultured???
I have some pearl earrings which are supposed to be from Spain and from the 1930s. Not quite right as I haven't received them yet but soon I hope. Thing is they have been called naturals and I doubt they are but I feel they must be South Sea unless fudged photos. But they look like South Sea pearls to me.
Could be wrong but please do let me know what you think. Oh, the size are 14 and 15mm in length. I do love them but I also bought them because of the screw clasps as I have a pair of earrings (antiques = genuine) that do not have backs. They actually stay in the ears very well even without back because they are so tight and I need to slowly enlarge the holes in my ears to take them. So far I have only bleed a couple of times but what is the love of pearls if we don't suffer a little pain, in one way or another, ususally financially.
Decided to add the photos of the 1930s pearl earrings. What is a thread without a photo
