If you love pearls, can you distinguish the difference between natural pearls and cultured pearls? Even if you avoid fakes, the real pearls are graded. See below for some simple tips!
One must look at "color." Includes color and shine. First, the color, freshwater pearls are generally white, milk, pink, purple, light yellow, etc., more common; and seawater pearls will have black, gold, white and other rare colors, such as the "Queen of the Pearl" The Tahitian pearls are called the top of the pearls in rare black. Among them, the blacks reveal the most expensive peacock green and rose purple. Let's talk about the luster. The reason why pearls give people a good feeling is that they are special from the luster, so "gloss is the soul of pearls."
Since the pearl is formed by the pearly substance secreted by the mother's living body, the pearl light is not a single color, but is reflected from the inner fine structure layer of the pearl, and is subjected to the special luster produced by the diffraction of light. When you look at the pearls, you can see the faintness of a variety of colors. It is endless and beautiful. This is called "the jewel of the pearl." The better the pearl, the more delicate and rich the gloss, the stronger the light, and some pearls have only a circle of pale light at the waist, indicating that the quality is low.
The second is to look at "shape." Many pearls are oval, rice-shaped, pear-shaped, etc. In fact, the pearl should be as round as possible, which is often referred to as "beads and jade". Irregular shapes appear mostly in freshwater pearls, while marine pearls are mainly pearls. Therefore, marine pearls are more beautiful than freshwater pearls, and their value is generally higher.
The third is to look at the "skin". Observe the pearl epidermis. The fewer the holes, the acne, the sputum, the dots, the rings, etc., the better the quality, the higher the value, but the pearls that are completely free of cockroaches do not exist. Then look at the thickness of the mother-of-pearl layer, that is, carefully observe the thickness of the bead layer from the pearl perforation, or indirectly from the strength of the pearl light, the too thin beads are not durable, the thicker the better.
