Precautions to Take With Your Pearl Jewelry

Your first pearl jewelry, perhaps you received it as a child, or as a young woman, but they have been the building block for your future pearl collection. If you received a pair of pearl stud earrings, you might have added a pearl necklace, bracelet or even a ring over the years. You want them to look as new as the day you first got them.

Maintaining and looking after your pearl jewelry is really quite simple:

  • When applying certain sprays, i.e. perfume, hairspray, deodorants—wait for a few minutes before putting on your jewelry. As an example, if you applied perfume and then put your pearl necklace on and the perfume was not completely dry, the iridescence, luster and color of the pearl could be altered and would become dull and lifeless overtime.
  • It is highly advised to have your pearl strand restrung every 1-2 years and to have knots between your pearls. If your stand breaks, your pearls will not be scattered all over and by having a knot in between each pearl bead, they avoid scratching against each other.
  • It’s best to keep them clean by placing them in mild soapy water and then letting them dry on a towel. If you wear your pearls frequently, wipe them with a soft damp cloth to avoid any kind of chemical build-up.
