How to check original pearl- now this is a bit tricky so it is best to purchase perals from a certified jeweller.
It has been said that a simple tip to check the originality of the pearl is to keep it between your front teeth lightly and move the teeth in grinding motion, original pearl has a textured grainy surface and is never  very smooth or even.Now  be very careful else  you may crack the pearl.
Then there is also another way to bounce the pearl in hand, it weighs more whereas the fake pearl may be lighter, but another hitch here, the fake may be made of glass  which is heavier.
Then of course go with your instincts, visual appeal, original pearls may not be exact round shape and all pearls in the necklace may not be of the exact same size and shape.
There is an original tinge glow to the original pearl which you can feel when you hold the gemstone in your hand, as other stones even pearl communicates to the individual who needs the healing.
Also found another very grueling test , drilling hole in the pearl to check the nucleus of the centre, wouldn't dare try  this as you will lose  the pearl .
