Imperial was founded by Joseph Gladstone in 1917, later renamed the Imperial Pearl Syndicate in 1941. It was during the post-war period that Imperial became the first to bring the valued Akoya pearls to the United States from Japan. A unique marketing campaign helped to establish brand recognition throughout the 1940's and 1950's. Both Imperial and Deltah pearls were marketed in ads featuring some of America's most notable theater icons, including Elizabeth Taylor, Shirley Temple, Loretta Young.
On June 1, 1995, Imperial Pearl Syndicate and Pearls and Deltah were merged to form Imperial-Deltah, Inc.
