How to Care for Pearls

Store them in a separate soft padded bag or box to prevent scratching the surface. Pearls like moist environments, so avoid storing them in an excessively dry place.

Avoid all contact with perfumes, hairspray, cosmetics, bleach and vinegar, as they will spot or even dissolve the porous surface of the pearl.

Wipe gently with a warm, damp towel before putting pearls away to remove excessive body oils and perspiration, as these are harmful to the pearl’s colour.

Restring pearls periodically, if they are worn frequently. (Click through to read about our pearl restringing service.)

Wear them. Your body’s natural oil will enrich the pearls and help maintain their luster.
