Know your Pearls.

Know your Pearls.

I have been asked several time recently, if I buy Pearls? The answer is yes I do but 8 out of 10 times when I go to look at these Pearls I fined they are not real. I have no interest in Faux Pearls because they are today costume jewelry and of low value. Real Pearls have unique characteristics and over the years, like most quality estate jewelry have retained their value and the best sets have appreciated. On the web site for Sarasota Antique Mall (sarasotaantiquemall.com) I have a page that gives some ways to tell if you have real or faux Pearls. (All about Pearls and other Estate jewelry.) Or you can always set up an appointment and I will be happy to advise you. You never know, possibly you have a valuable set like these.
