You really can't trust anything now-days without having it tested (stones, pearls, metals). Tags can be changed. Metals can be stamped wrong. Sometimes plated metals are stamped or listed as solid.
Stones can be misrepresented as natural or synthetic when they are simulants.
Pearls very rarely turn out to be natural. Sometimes they are "cultured pearls". There's also a lot of ground fish scales and ground-up shells glued together to form "simulated pearls", which are often wrongly called "shell pearl". Pearls are either: natural, cultured, or simulated.
