How to properly care for pearl jewellery?

Pearls are a timeless and elegant addition to any jewelry collection. However, these delicate gems require proper care to maintain their lustrous beauty over time. Here are some tips on how to properly care for your pearl jewelry.

Avoid exposing pearls to harsh chemicals and extreme temperatures.


Pearls are sensitive to acids, alkaline substances, and extreme heat and cold. To protect your pearls, avoid exposing them to harsh chemicals such as perfume, hairspray, and household cleaners. In addition, extreme temperatures can cause pearls to dry out and crack. Avoid leaving your pearls in direct sunlight or in very hot or cold environments.


Clean your pearls regularly.

Pearls should be cleaned regularly to remove any dirt or oils that may have accumulated on the surface. To clean your pearls, simply wipe them gently with a soft, damp cloth. Avoid using harsh cleaning agents or abrasive materials that can scratch the surface of the pearls.


Store pearls properly.

Pearls should be stored in a cool, dry place away from other jewelry that may scratch their surface. Ideally, pearls should be stored in a soft pouch or wrapped in a soft cloth to prevent them from coming into contact with hard surfaces that could damage them.


Wear pearls with care.

Pearls are delicate and can be easily scratched or damaged if not worn with care. When wearing your pearl jewelry, avoid exposing it to rough surfaces, and take care not to snag the pearls on clothing or other accessories. In addition, avoid wearing pearls while engaging in activities that may cause them to come into contact with harsh chemicals or extreme temperatures.


Have pearls professionally restrung.

Over time, the thread that holds the pearls together may become worn or stretched, which can cause the pearls to break or become loose. To prevent this from happening, it is important to have your pearl jewelry professionally restrung every few years.

By following these tips, you can help ensure that your pearl jewelry remains beautiful and lustrous for years to come. With proper care and maintenance, your pearls can become a treasured family heirloom that can be passed down for generations to come.
