Fake van cleef arpels necklace stone or real
I love the color green of replica van Cleef & Arpels necklace, and Malachite is a mixture of deep, rich greens and bright, Springtime greens. It’s such a beautiful stone. But what is it really? Are there really fakes out there? How can you tell?
I have a fabulous pendant that I’m thinking about putting in my shop. It’s from my Aunt, and actually, there are two of these BIG artisan handcrafted pendants, one with Malachite and two colors of Mother of Pearl, and the second one has Malachite and a Biwa pearl, both with unique sterling settings. I don’t know which one I want to keep! So I was trying to do some research on them, because they don’t have any notes or tags with them about their origin, and I hoped I would see something similar.
Like all popular gemstones though, there are now increasing amounts of fake malachite flooding the market, especially over the internet for the Cartier panther ring replica. Here are some tips to help you avoid these imitations:
- Genuine malachite is very cold, very heavy and feels hard. It is heavier than solid glass or plastic and feels ‘dense’ and ice cold when held and touched. The striped patterns are called ‘banding’. Genuine malachite is not uniform in its patterns and colors; you’ll find circles, speckles and thin to thick parts in the patterns, and dark to light-green hues.
Stay tuned for my next posts about replica Cartier Juste un Clou bracelet. I’ll also be discussing why there is so much confusion from and about Chinese distributors and fakes. In the meantime, Buyer Aware and Happy Beading!! ?
