    Have you considered mother of pearl? Mother of pearl hair combs are fairly easy to find, and also genuine material.

    I also found some bobby pins made with genuine pearls.

    I have one, with gray pearls of varying shapes and sizes.

    Back to the Tin Cup, it's difficult to find one with lots of pearls. Most modern tin cup necklaces seem to be five or seven pearls.

    This is how I understand the terms, too.
    I feel that the base color/undertone of the pearl never changes, but the other factors can change with the quality of the light. For example, Tahitian...

    I'm wondering -- are black pearls really harder than white pearls? I hadn't heard that before.

    I remember reading a long time ago, powerful women wear pearls because it's the jewelry that does not detract from what they're saying. An observer mentally notes 'pearls,' but doesn't focus on them....

    I like the pearls, but part of me is wondering if they're real ... did they pass the tooth test? Of course, with a 14K clasp, they're probably real.

    I'll defer to the experts.
