Tests for pearls
by: Kari

Hello Meriem,

On this page, http://www.karipearls.com/test.html, you can read about some tests for determining pearls.

And on this page, http://www.karipearls.com/natural-pearl-tests.html, you can read about some tests for determining natural pearls.

Since natural pearls are very rare, and natural black pearls are extremely rare, I do not think your necklace consists of natural pearls. They may or may not be cultured pearls. They could be synthetic pearls.

Thank you for sharing.
