Is there such things as fish bites on pearls? I recently bought 3 pieces of black south sea pearls which the jeweller made it into a pair of earrings and a pendant. After this was done I noticed few indentation marks. I bought this from Philippines and made by a local jeweller. I inquired about these marks/FLAWS, I was told they are known as fish bites? Thanks.
