Taking Care of Pearls

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.
