How to Tell Real Pearls from Imitation Pearls
Real pearls are only rarely "perfect". Their outer nacre layer may also reflect light differently on different parts of the pearl.
Imitation pearls are almost always "too perfect" – they look perfectly spherical, they have the same amount of luster on every part of the surface, and show no indents or imperfections.
Magnify the surfaces of the pearls with a magnifier. If they look grainy, the beads are imitation pearls. If they look scaly, maze-like, they are real pearls. (Under 64-power magnification)
Most real pearls are rarely round. A pearl necklace strand that is perfectly round commands an extremely high price and is very rare.
Real pearls are cold to touch for the first couple of seconds before warming up against your skin. Fake plastic pearls have the same temperature as the room temperature and you don't feel the coolness when you touch them. However, fake ones that are made of glass beads can be cool to touch to start with. But it tends to take them longer to warm up against your skin than real pearls.
