How to Care for Pearls

Pearls are the only gems produced by a living creature. Pearls and their beauty are therefore special. Your pearls will retain their special beauty with just a little care.

Never allow your pearls to come in contact with anything that contains acid. Avoid contact with bleach, ammonia, alcohol and swimming pools. Always remove pearl rings before bathing or washing dishes. Apply hairspray and perfume before putting on pearls.

Over time, acid and perspiration can dull pearls. The luster of your pearls can be preserved by occasionally cleaning them with a solution of mild soap and warm water. Follow this with drying and polishing with a clean, soft cloth.

This simple care will insure the lasting beauty of your pearls.
