How do I best look after my pearls?

Published 11/03/2009

Cultured pearls are precious jewels and should be treated as such. Each strand of pearls should be stored in its own box or bag away from other jewellery. Pearls should not be worn whilst bathing, showering or playing sport. "Last thing on and first thing off" - Pearls should be put on after applying makeup etc and should be taken off before removing makeup etc. Pearls can be cleaned with a damp soft cloth. If immersing in water is needed, then the pearls should be restrung. Pearls should be restrung approximately every two years or earlier depending on wear.
