Default Info needed about Pearl Mutation

I need some education on Pearls. When an adult male loses its pearl marking, does it retain some marking to indicate it is Pearl and not normal? I will appreciate if someone can post a photo of Adult Pearl to highlight differentiating differences?

Not usually. http://talkcockatiels.com/showthread.php?t=26845 this sticky has more info on sex-link recessive mutations, which pearl is. Sometimes, you will find a pearl male that has kept one or two pearls (like literally on his entire body, one or two yellow spots.) Males will also sometimes have what's called ghost pearling, which is a white shading to the feathers that indicates the bird is a visual pearl. The photo attached is of my pearl male split pied, Fuzzy. Because he was split to pied, Fuzzy didn't full lose all his pearls until he was well over two years old. In fact, he kept the yellow tail feathers for several molts. If you look near his wing, you will see a couple pearls he kept and some of the white shading I was talking about.

Thanks. In the photo you have attached, difference seem to be quite significant.
