Hi, I have been left a natural pearl given to my father in the 1970’s when he was in Thursday Island, on a school conference. He said the Chief of the Island gave it to him. It’s not cultured. Not perfectly round. Has that little knob on it where it was growing in the pearl shell muscle. I want to get it set in a ring…it’s a fairly good size….but I’m afraid a jeweller will replace it with a fake. I don’t know much about pearls. How do I ensure it doesn’t get swapped?
