Just did the tooth test! Super smooth like hard candy. Not good hehe.Good plan, and you're right, it was an opportunity to learn!
Do try the "tooth test" if you have not already (rubbing pearls gently against each other, or against the edge of your front tooth), so that you know what fake pearls feel like (slippery, not gritty.) That will help you the next time you are trying to determine if pearls are real or not.
Do you think you will now want to find a real pearl strand? Always happy to be an enabler.
Thanks! Do you think the Akoya strand looks almost as good as the Hanadama? I know it’s probably hard to tell for sure in photos, but the Hanadamas are twice as expensive and I don’t think they look twice as good!The top 3 photos are in better focus than the last photo, and that may be influencing me, but I would prefer any of the top 3 over the last one.
