American fashion house Calvin Klein, that was recently in news for Lupita Nyong'o stolen Oscar dress, asserted that they never claimed whether or not the pearls on the dress were real.

A source connected with the Women's Creative Director of Calvin Klein asserted that they never told anyone if the pearls were real or fake, TMZ.com reported. The source added that everyone knew pearls were fake as no one made dresses out of real jewels since Cleopatra died.

According to reports, the only person who represented the pearls as real and valued the dress at 150K dollars was Lupita's stylist.

Nyong'o stolen Oscar dress was reportedly worth between 150,000 dollars and 10 million dollars.

The thief had called the website and said he took two of the pearls down to the Garment District in LA and learned they were fake and that's when he returned the dress to the hotel.
