They are also known as synthetic or crystal pearls, with the latter name referencing their crystalline structure and pearl-like sheen. These artificial pearls are as optically beautiful as their natural counterparts.

The look

Lacquered artificial pearls have a deep, lustrous shimmer, similar to that found on high quality natural pearls. Their uniform size, shape and colour make them ideal for all types of jewellery. Man-made pearls are available in a wide variety of colours.


Lacquered artificial pearls consist of a core of man-made crystal covered with an innovative pearl-like coating. The pearl coating comprises of a base coat and a nitrocellulose lacquering. The thickness of the final lacquering is approximately 0.1mm.


With a hardness of 6.5-7 Mohs and good toughness, the lacquered artificial pearl is durable and ideal for use on all types of jewellery.
