Though Pearl Farming has expanded greatly in the last 10 to 20 years, there is still a bright future for it. New technologies and methods for pearl farming are coming out all the time that increases the size and quality of the pearls. Cultured pearls are becoming more and more beautiful, both freshwater pearls and saltwater pearls. New nuclei are being discovered that make a better harvest. Also, as larger corporations begin cultivating pearls, the over quality of the pearl farm is increasing as well. Other countries and regions are also experimenting with cultured pearls. These include areas around Florida and the Caribbean. As you can tell, cultured pearls are not going away, and are in fact becoming readily available to the average American consumer of pearl jewelry, not just the elite.
