EDWARDIAN PEARL BEADED TASSEL BELT

I have a very old Edwardian pearl tassel belt.

It's beautiful, but needs a bit of repair to some beads however this does not retract from its beauty. It is over 4 ft long and amazing for its age. I would love to know how to tell real pearls from cultured pearls as I have noticed some peeling on just one of the pearls. Does this detract from its value? Thanks

Hi I have So I am told an Edwardian Pearl Sautoir

It is fascinating but frustrating in the same vein.

I have done so much research about it to find what type of pearl it is. I have recently found one of the pearls
are very soft and it feel like wax inside but outside when you do the tooth test it is gritty. The pearls are all uneven it is very heavy and feels cold to the touch so very baffling. Any help would be appreciated thanks annmac

Edwardian Pearl Ring




Hello!

I am about to buy an "Edwardian Pearl ring" online that the buyer claims features cultivated seawater pearls. Is this possible given the history of pearl cultivation and that it seems to have started in the 1920's? Trying to judge both the authenticity of the pearls and the ring itself.

Thank you very much!!

Travis
