Let us not lose absolutely precious time and start immediately our arguments regarding the authenticity or falsity of pearls.
To be able to recognize at first glance authentic pearls, distinguishing them from the faux pearl Jewelry, the first thing to know is that, in nature, there are several types of pearls, all different different value and authentic but by value. The most valuable pearls are those round, bright and iridescent reflections. A second type of natural pearls, always authentic but lesser value is that of the Pearl River which, like precious pearls, retain their shimmering reflections in pastel colors, especially pink and golden yellow, but have irregular shapes, elongated and oval. Pearls absolutely false, instead, are equal to the fine jewelry pearls, round and regular, but are recognizable by their reflections, less colorful than the genuine pearls. This type of fake pearls are completely absent of bright colors and are tending to white color. They are simply imitations.

In order to diversify the genuine pearls from imitation pearl, in addition, you will have the opportunity to observe the hole for passing up the necklace or bracelet. As for the forum of real pearls, it shows regular and without any type of stain or damage, while the hole of imitation pearls always presents of irregularity, in form and color, as was previously subjected to a staining or varnishing, to imitate the bright surface of the pearls.

Authentic pearls are recognised also by any small bumps or irregularities on the surface: these signs help to recognize the authentic and natural pearls, distinguishing them from those imitation, always perfectly round because produced in series. To go to conclude, you can perform a simple experiment with your teeth. You will be able immediately to diversify authentic pearls by placing them under those false teeth and perceiving their rough surface. Where the area was quite smooth, you can bollarle as bogus.
