HOW TO TELL WHEN A PEARL IS FAKE 😳

Posted on 31 January 2020

Real Pearls

  • Real pearls are Pearls which are grown in either a mussel or Oyster Shell.
  • Fake Pearls are simply a plastic or glass need covered in a shiny substance.

Easy test to check for Fake Pearls

  • Some Pearls can be easily seen as fakes just by looking at them. This is what you see in costume jewellery that retailers like Target & Kmart sell.

 

 

  • Other Fake Pearls are more difficult to tell.
  • Place the pearl up to your mouth & rub it against your teeth.
  • If the surface of the Pearl feels smooth then it's a FAKE
  • If the surface of the Pearl feels gritty & scratchy then it's REAL
All of our Pearls here at Lush Designs Jewellery are the real deal. A simple test that anyone can do is to gently rub a pearl across your tooth..if it feels gritty then you have a real pearl in your hands. However, if it feels smooth then you most likely have a fake pearl which is usually made from plastic or Mother of Pearl Shell.
