Glass pearl ‘v’ natural pearl, is that the ‘vegetarian’ alternative?

ImageOur new winter 2013 pearls are in, ready for our first show in Feb. They are just beautiful, luxurious  satin coated nuggets of glass and the colours are exquisite. So whilst I was eating my lunch I wondered if these are the ‘Vegetarian’ alternative to the real thing?? Now I know that real pearls are hugely expensive and quite scarce,I also know that there is a large industry of cultivated fresh water pearls, but is it the case that people that don’t do leather don’t do real pearls either??  Have to say,quite honestly… vegetarian, meat eater, environmentally concious or not, I really can’t recommend these glass ones enough!
