Real or glass pearls?
- OK, I've been perusing the firemountaingems site, and it seems there
are two choices -
irregular freshwater pearls, either rice, button or potato shaped -
thinking button is the best option,
or perfectly round but glass based pearls.
Perfectly round real pearls are out of my league!
If you were given the choice, authenticity buffs, would you go for
real but wonky, or fake but perfect?
