As an organic substance, your pearls will need a little looking after.

 

Minimise contact with perfume, make-up and perspiration.

Wipe pearls gently with a damp cloth to remove body oils.

Do not use a detergent on your pearls.

Keep pearls protected in a soft material, such as silk, satin or velvet.

Do not let your pearls rub against hard objects, such as diamonds or gold.

Avoid very dry or extreme heat conditions.

Do not wear your pearls in a swimming pool, the sea, or the shower.
