How to identify vintage beads so that you don’t fall victim for fake vintage beads!
Sort the beads into colors, shapes, and sizes as it will be a lot easier to select through them and spot the real vintage beads compared to fake or imitation vinatge beads.
You should examine the beads under natural light or excellent light conditions using a magnifying glass to get a a close look at the beads. If there are older embellishments or other unique characteristics about the beads, then this will help identify if they are of vintage quality. You can also look for sheen or gleam or any other shiny element to the vintage bead that may help specify the beads origin. Or sometimes, there could be natural aging or patina that will take place, which indicates a physical feature that has been on the piece for an extended period of time.
When you feel vintage beads if they are cold to the hand then they are usually either made from glass or a genuine stone. There are many different materials used in creating vintage beads including different types of plastic, lucite, acrlyic or bakelite. Most times, if they feel heavy and can be warmed to the touch this shows that they are made from either glass or genuine gemstones.
