How to tell if it’s real?
- November 27, 2017
There’s a couple of easy ways to tell if you’re Pearls are real or imitation. Firstly, fake Pearls will look too uniform –all the same shape, colour etc. They may look too shiny and perfect. Cultured Pearls are never as uniform as that. Real Pearls may be a little heavier than fake ones.
If they are glassy and shiny they could be glass or plastic. Our Pearls will be different shapes and sizes-with slight indentations and markings on the surface.
Finally if you rub a pearl gently against a front tooth it will feel chalky –while a fake one will feel smooth and glassy.
