Of all the precious gemstones, pearls are among the most sensitive. In order to make sure that your pearls don't become scratched or lost, it's important to clean, store, and re-string them properly as time goes by.
To clean your pearls, simply dip them in a mild soap solution before rinsing and drying with a non-abrasive cloth. Once they're shiny and spot-free, store them in a velvet-lined box or envelope. If, while wearing your pearls, you notice that one or two stones feel loose, take the strand into your jeweler for a re-stringing service. For more helpful tips, check out this video.
