Pearl Care

Pearl Care

  • Wipe your pearls with a soft, lint-free cloth as soon as you take them off to remove any excess body oil or residue. The cloth can be dampened with water, or it can be dry. If damp, allow the pearls to air dry before putting them away.

  • Never clean your pearls with solutions that contain ammonia or harsh detergents.

  • Don't under any circumstances put pearl jewelry in an ultrasonic cleaner. The vibrations can severely damage the nacre coating.

  • Don't use abrasive cleaners or rub pearls with abrasive polishing cloth. Both can wear away the nacre coating, leaving you with a dull looking bead.

  • Never clean your pearls too often. Doing so can dull out the pearl's finish. A little body oil is a great way to enhance the shine of your pearls. 


Storing Pearls Correctly

  • How you store your pearls can be just as important as how you clean your pearls. Make sure you follow these tips to keep your pearls damage-free.

  • Don't store your pearls with other jewelry because pearls can be scratched easily when metal or gemstones rub against them. Find a special slot in your jewelry box for the pearls, or keep them in a soft bag made from chamois or another non-abrasive material.
