Real Peals Fake Pearls?
- April 2, 2019
Advice from the Pearl expert.
We get a lot of questions from our customers about what are fake or real pearls and how to tell the difference. Easy answer really: take the pearl and gently rub it against your tooth. If it is smooth and glides across then it’s probably a fake pearl. If it’s chalky and slightly rough then it’s a real pearl. Be gentle though.
We deal with freshwater pearls here at ilovemypearls. Our pearls are naturally grown in freshwater ponds and lakes. Freshwater pearls are great value and come in different sizes, shapes and colours. We check the quality of the pearls and make sure you get value for money. We don’t sell the other cultured pearls such as Akoya, Tahitian or South Sea. These are lovely pearls but can be very expensive. While our freshwater pearls are much better value and it’s often difficult to tell the difference between the types of pearls. So have a good look at our real freshwater pearls in the confidence that you are buying the real thing.
