    Oh, yes...they certainly can yellow. My MIL's fake pearls became yellowed and dull.

    My grandmother's Richelieu faux pearls have a sterling silver clasp, but the pearls have yellowed horribly over the years. I'll have to find them and post a photo.

    Nana's faux pearls on the left and my natural white Hanadamas on the right. OK, it's not a fair fight, is it?

    I guess I should pretend they are goldens!!! Except they have NO pearl overtones. Very flat looking in person.

    A Hanadama strand against a fake strand, hahahaha! That's overkill!

    ... but those hanadamas are gorgeous!

    These are all Majoricas. I wear them now and then-- even faux pearls can be fun!
    They're very comfortable. Best of all, they didn't cost a lot (never pay retail for this brand!)

    In order:
    • 10mm "Tahitian" color round
    • white 12mm round choker
    • gray 12mm round
    • 14mm champagne and white round
    • 12mm multicolor round
    • large champagne baroque necklace

    I was pleased to find that some others have and cherish fake pearls....I have a long strand of very fake (they are not even trying to be real pearls, they are not weighted at all, I think they are just a pearly coating on a probably plastic bead) white pearls that belonged to my great-grandma I never met, hence they are special. I want to restring them and wear them just because they are special, and I remember when I was given them as a 12 year old I thought they were the absolute most beautiful thing in the world and I felt so glamorous wearing them!

    Fake pearls are fun and great for when you travel - never have to worry about them.

    As stated on the new thread you started, these look like imitation pearls. The resale value would be small.

    No apologies needed!!

    A lot of ladies of our parents' and grandparents' generation wore imitation pearls, and were proud of them. My MIL wore a strand of Prestige brand imitation pearls, and my mother wore Majorica...they both thought they had genuine pearls.

    I'm not Nancy Pelosi but I like the look. One of my favorite Majorica strands.
    I should wear this more often.
