How to tell if your pearls are real ----
True or Not: "You can tell if a pearl is real by rubbing it against your teeth".....TRUE!
Real pearls feel gritty against your teeth. Most faux (fake) pearls will feel smooth.
However, the gritty feel can fool you because pearls that are made of ground mother-of-pearl, will feel like a real pearl against your teeth.
Look at each pearl on your necklace - no two pearls should look exactly the same. (If you have a strand of perfect, exactly round, blemish-free pearls and you did not pay an extraordinary amount of money for it, it’s likely to be fake.)
