Taking care of Pearls

Your natural oils keep your pearls moisturised. The lustre (glow) of your pearls will improve when worn next to your skin.

To keep them hydrated. A dry/airless atmosphere (like a sealed plastic bag in a safe) will dry them out, their surface will crack and they will turn yellow. Pearl earrings are best stored in their box for protection.

Will re-hydrate your saltwater pearls naturally, however the saltwater can dry out the thread holding your pearls together. Swimming in treated-water (chlorine) will significantly damage your pearls.

With a damp cloth, removing any trace of perspiration or perfume which will erode the surface of your pearls, diminishing their lustre (glow).

Perfume, hairspray and fake tan all contain chemicals that damage pearls and so are best avoided. (We collaborated with a Florentine perfumier to produce a unique scent that actually moisturizes the pearl! See here for details).

When not in use and never test their genuineness by biting them with your teeth. The surface of your pearl is very delicate, these precautions will protect your pearl from scratches.

Remove your jewellery by its setting and store pieces lying flat (a necklace’s silk string will stretch if left hanging).

Look for stretching, discoloration or fraying in the thread holding your pearls together. If the fine coiled wire (the gimp) between your necklace’s clasp and the string is discoloured or green, the string has rotten underneath. Get your pearls restrung, making your pearl design last a lifetime.
