How to Spot a Real Pearl in a Sea of Fakes
If you are a woman, chances are you know the difference between real and fake pearls, and could spot one just about anywhere given a close enough look. However, if you are a man who is considering buying pearls for a wife, girlfriend, or mother, you may need to have a little instruction to be able to tell the difference.
You may be wondering, should I even care if they are real or fake? The answer is yes-she will!
Real pearls say grace, beauty, commitment, and class. Fake pearls say dress up, teenager, and cheap-probably not the message you are wanting to convey to your sweetheart.
The fact is, you cannot go wrong by presenting that special lady with a necklace or earrings made from real pearls. Barbara Bush, Queen Elizabeth II, and other distinguished figures are often seen out and about, proudly wearing pearl jewelry.
It goes well with just about any outfit, and projects class and grace. Most pearls are produced by oysters living in either fresh or salt water.
