How to Tell Real Pearls from Imitation Pearls
Real pearls are only rarely “perfect”. Their outer nacre layer may also reflect light another way on different parts of the pearl.
Imitation pearls are almost all the time “too perfect” – they look perfectly spherical, they’ve the same amount of luster on every a part of the surface, and show no indents or imperfections.
Magnify the surfaces of the pearls with a magnifier. If they look grainy, the beads are imitation pearls. If they look scaly, maze-like, they’re real pearls. (Under 64-power magnification)
Most real pearls are rarely round. A pearl necklace strand that is perfectly round commands an extremely high price and is very rare.
Real pearls are cold to touch for the first couple of seconds before warming up against your skin. Fake plastic pearls have the same temperature as the room temperature and you do not feel the coolness when you touch them. On the other hand, fake ones that are made of glass beads will also be cool to touch first of all. But it tends to take them longer to warm up against your skin than real pearls.
