Pearls are associated with luxury and class. These jewels are so wanted, that often we meet with fake ones. Sometimes it’s easy to see- by the quality and by the price. But some limitations are made so good, that it’s hard to tell are we buying a real gem or just a crystal fake. The following sections will give you some helpful guidelines as you choose your ideal piece.
Luster is the amount of light a pearl reflects from both its surface glow and the deep mirror-like reflection of its inner light. The better the nacre quality of the pearl, the more superior its lustre.
Subtle blemishes and tiny marks are part of a pearl’s natural texture and proof of its genuine origin. These blemishes are the result of sea particles that drift into the oyster and brush against the pearl as it forms.
It’s possible to buy nearly perfect jewellery, made with ideally same pearls.. but the price will be very hight.
