You have to be armed with the knowledge of how to differentiate a real pearl from a fake one to get the best value for your money.

The most popular way of testing a pearl’s genuineness is my rubbing it against your front tooth. A real pearl would feel sandy while a fake one would feel smooth. You won’t feel that much friction when rubbing your tooth against a rip-off gem. If you’re quite hesitant on using your tooth to check a pearl’s genuineness, you could just rub a it with another pearl. Rub them against each other and touch their surface afterward. If the the surface is smooth, chances are, it’s a rip off. A rough sandy pearl surface however, denotes a genuine gem.

Buying pearls need not be that complicated. You just have to arm yourself with the proper knowledge of differentiating a fake pearl from a real one to get the best value out of your money. However, always remember that not all genuine pearls have the same quality. Their quality greatly varies depending on their grade, type, and size. Happy shopping!
