Identifying Natural Pearls from Cultured Pearls
by: Anonymous

Hi magi

thanks for writing in with the following good pearl question:

"l have a string of graduated pearls with a blue hue,
these are old pearls, how do l know if these are
natural or cultured pearls? thanks"

Your pearls with a blue hue sound beautiful and mysterious no matter if they are natural or cultured pearls although natural pearls are much more rare and hence more valuable. The only definitive test for natural pearls is by X-ray. Blue Pearls, according to vedic astrology are the giver of fortune. Pearls are treasures from the Earth's streams, rivers, lakes, seas, and oceans, and they have always embodied the mystery, power, and life-like sustaining nature of water.

You can find more info on identifying natural pearls from cultured on this page on Antique Jewelry Investor.

Enjoy your beautiful watery blue pearls.
