How to Tell Real from Fake Pearls

Hey there,

So how do you easily tell the difference between a real pearl and a fake pearl? It is a simple test of gently rubbing the pearl on the front of your tooth. If it has texture, some describe as ‘gritty’, it is real. If it is perfectly smooth it is fake.

The more texture there is the more valuable the pearl is. So a $1,000 pearl is going to have more texture than a $20 pearl.
