  • Peerless Pearls

    Can anyone provide information about Peerless Pearls?
    I have a set of Peerless Pearls - 3 strand graduated in original case. They look and feel like real pearls (lustre / shape / size / grittiness to teeth)
    I have looked and seen other examples on ebay - all have the same information attached to the bottom (see attached photo) which indicate the company was not Australian rather just sold here through agencies / distributors. The text also seems to indicate the pearls are real (not costume)
    I have searched the internet and the only reference I could find was a cartoon style advertisement for Peerless Pearl Buttons - New Jersey USA.

    Can anyone provide information on:
    The Peerless Pearls Company - where they were based and how long ago?
    Were their products all real pearls (i.e. not costume)

    Many thanks

    I haven't heard of this company before (way before my time as a pearl person) but it looks legit to me.

    The cartoon is extra funny because the company seems based in Camden, Tennessee, at that time a great producer of mother-of-pearl buttons from pearly mussels (freshwater) yet advertises as "Ocean Pearl Buttons".

    From the photo of the strand (not particularly one that shows much detail) they look like yellow-cream colored Akoya pearls to me.

      Your case kind of reminds me of this very recent thread:
