How to Tell If Authentic Turquoise Jewelry is Fake

by Jonshon Matthew Consultant

The jewelry industry has seen a proliferation of fake pieces that it has now become common for jewelry lovers to wear fake ones without knowing. Apart from hurting the industry, this is responsible for the many losses that buyers and wearers incur when they buy pieces that cannot last long. With the right guide, though, it should be easier to identify originals of authentic turquoise, Squash blossom, and Native American pieces.

How to Identify Original Turquoise Jewelry

If you have been hunting for authentic turquoise jewelry, then this guide is for you. You can rely on it to help you distinguish between the original and fake ones. Read further for tips.

Watch out for Color Inconsistencies

Turquoise jewelry does not have variations when it comes to colors, but you may find a variety of colors out there when shopping. This could be a signal that what you have in front of you is a fake or dyed piece. Additionally, genuine turquoise bracelets, for example, will have color inconsistencies, while those ones that are products of dying will have a concrete and uniform color, which could be the proof that you need to avoid it.


Test it With Your Teeth

This may sound a bit weird, but actually, it works. Ideally, turquoise will have a dull density that you can feel if you tap it on your teeth. If the piece has a stone that feels more like plastic or glass, you should learn to keep off. This should help you tell between copycats and authentic Native American bracelets.

Ask for Help

If you are still unsure of how to identify between a fake and original jewelry piece, ask for help too. You can talk to an authenticator, artisan, or dealer that you trust and ask for their help.

Follow Original Artists

The other tip would be to follow original artists of the pieces that you want where you can find them. In this social media age, it is much possible to find a Squash Blossom necklace artist on any social media platform and learn what they sell and where you can find their pieces. They may also offer tips on how to identify their original pieces.

If you want to spend wisely and on authentic jewelry, then do your homework well. Research about the different pieces available too. While at it, do not hesitate to ask for assistance too.
