This beautiful girl arrived recently from Japan.
She has been made with a pearlescent plastic head and what appears to be a pearlescent plastic core. Her face and hair have been painted on.
Her dress has been made by threading together pearls of different sizes. He earrings and hair band are also pearl.
The seller advertised her as being made from cultured pearls and there was a bit of bidding on her. Her final price was not expensive and even with post to Aus I am not feeling like I spent lots on her.
My question is: are they pearls or not?
I have looked at them through a loupe and there seems to be an unevenness to them that would not be on false pearls. I am not knowledgeable about pearls so if anyone is able to help here I would be grateful.
She is very pretty no matter the origins of her pearl dress and so different to other dolls.
