Jewelry Care - How to care for Pearls?

Long known as the "Queen of Gems," pearls possess a history and allure far beyond what today's wearer may recognize. Throughout much of recorded history, a natural pearl necklace comprised of matched spheres was a treasure of almost incomparable value, in fact the most expensive jewelry in the world. Now we see pearls almost as accessories, relatively inexpensive decorations to accompany more costly gemstones.

Pearls are fragile and softer than other gemstones. That is why it is important that you care for your pearls so that they remain bright and beautiful for a long time. Below are some suggestions:
  1. After wearing your pearls, make a habit of wiping the pearls with a soft damp cloth. This is remove any build-up o the pearls.
  2. From time to time, wash the pearls with mild soap. Once finished, gently rinse and place on soft towel or cloth to dry. Do not hang pearls to dry as this may stretch the silk thread.
  3. Store the pearls in a soft material box, pouch or bag. Do not store pearls in plastic bags as they will dry out and crack over time.
  4. Store pearls separately from your other jewelry. Pearls are easily be scratched or damaged because they are softer than other gems or stones.
  5. Before doing housework, take off your pearls. The chemicals from the detergent can damage the pearls.
  6. Wear your pearls after putting on makeup, perfume and hairspray. The chemicals from these products can dull the pearl's luster.
