  • real or not

    Hello I was given two strands of pearls. I have no information about them and my friend has since passed. They seem fairly old, though a couple are chipped which leads me to believe they aren't real but I don't know how to tell. Any help is greatly appreciated!

    Better pictures of my real or not pearls

    Here are some new pictures now that I have a white background. Any information on either strand would help I have no information about them. My friend who gave them to has passed.

        Welcome! Great photos and really nice artificial pearls. Real cultured pearls would have little variations in color and surface quality.

        I have a few ropes like this and I occasionally enjoy wearing them even though I have a lot of real pearls. They are great fashion!

          I agree, they are both imitation. In the second photo, the peeling coating is exactly what imitation pearls look like as they peel.

          Like GemGeek, I have some imitation pearls I enjoy wearing from time to time.

            Concur with the others, and I too have imitation pearls that I wear occasionally.

              I think I had a similar strand of imitation pearls like the one with the mabe clasp, years ago before I could afford real ones. I agree with the others. These look like nice imitation pearls.
