Here are some our favourite helpful tips for protecting your pearls from our very own pearl specialist Charlie!
Apply hairsprays and perfumes at least 30 minutes before putting on your pearls.
Why? Pearls are delicate organic gemstones that are vulnerable to many chemicals.
Clean with a soft damp cloth, warm water and no detergents.
Why? Soaking the pearls or using detergents can damage the silk the pearls are strung upon.
Store your pearls in individual boxes or compartments.
Why? Pearls can be easily scratched by other pieces of jewellery.
Store your pearls in a cool environment.
Why? They can dry out and crack in warm temperatures.
Please Note: Stringing on new and re-strung pearls & beads are only guaranteed for 6 months.
