Follow these simple steps and your pearls will say shiny and beautiful like the first day when you bought them.
When wearing perfume, first put the perfume on then wear your pearls. The acid from the perfume damages the nacre.
Don’t handle your pearls when you have lotion on your hands. The lotion dulls the pearl.
When you’re not wearing your pearls, if they have a box, keep them in their box without placing any other pieces of jewelry with your pearls. If they don’t have a box, lay them flat in cushiony material such as cotton. The pearls sink into the cotton and they don’t rub against each other. Never keep pearls in a box with other pieces of jewelry. The constant rubbing of metal from other pieces of jewelry with pearls, ruins the nacre. They lose their luster and irridescent quality.
Wear your pearls often and enjoy them!
