How to Choose Pearls - Step 5
A 5 Step Guide for Beginners
Step 5: Where to Buy Pearls
Buy from a company that specializes in pearls. Much inaccurate information is given by jewellers that don't know pearls like they do other gems.
Check to make sure the company provides a Certificate of Authenticity showing what type of pearls you have purchased. It's also important to make sure they have a good return policy, so you can easily return anything that isn't up to your expectations.
