Pearls are a special gift of nature, to ensure lasting pleasure and prevent accidental damage, follow these guidelines:

  • Store your Pearls separately.
  • Try not to knock your Pearls against sharp or hard surfaces.
  • Do not drop Pearls into handbags etc. without first placing them in their pouch.
  • After each wear, wipe your Pearls with a soft damp cloth to remove any build up of body oils or perspiration.
  • Occasionally clean your Pearls in warm water using a mild pure soap – not detergent.
  • Rinse and pat dry thoroughly with a soft clean cloth before storing.
  • Pearls should never have contact with detergents, bleach, cleaning solutions or sonic cleaners.
  • Try to avoid direct contact with perfume, makeup, shampoo and hairspray which can all eat away the lustre of your pearls.
  • Restring your Pearls every 1 or 2 years. Ensure they are knotted separately to prevent scratching.
  • Pearls thrive on moisture, so avoid this by storing in a very dry place or jewel purse.
  • Do the right thing and your Pearls will become an heirloom, worn lovingly for generations to come.
