Mastoloni and the CPAA
In 1957, the Cultured Pearl Association of America (CPAA) was founded with the intention of cultivating awareness, interest, demand and successful marketability of cultured pearls across both the retail and consumer levels. The organization is a non-profit group comprised of the finest manufacturers, wholesalers, retailers, dealers and suppliers of cultured pearls in the US. Through promotion, education, public relations and unwavering commitment, the CPAA aims to inspire an authentic passion for all cultured pearl varieties.
The Mastoloni family played a large part in the founding of the CPAA and maintains strong ties within the organization, Frank Mastoloni, Sr. was amongst the original founding members; his sons, Frank, Jr. and Ray – and grandson, Francis – are all former presidents.
