Your pearls are precious in more ways than one and you sure do want to keep them looking as gorgeous and as beautiful as you first saw them. Good quality pearls are durable and resilient but that doesn’t take away the fact that they need adequate care to continue to look lustrous.
Here are some important tips on how to keep your pearl jewellery looking as new as ever.
- Keep pearl jewellery away from water
Avoid taking a shower, doing the dishes or swimming to keep the silk your pearls are strung on to from breaking.
- Don’t keep your pearls unused for long
Yes! It’s important that you wear them often as keeping them unused may deprive them of lustre that they absorb from the oils your skin naturally secretes.
- Use a soft cloth to clean
Make sure to wipe your pearls with a soft cloth to remove sweat, perfume, excess oils or dirt before you store them away.
- Avoid airtight packages
Never store pearls in an airtight package such as a plastic bag. Your pearls need moisture around them to keep the shine intact.
- The Last In First Out Rule
Always use perfumes, hairsprays, and other chemical products before you wear your pearl jewellery. It should be the last thing you put on and the first thing you take off.
- Restringing your pearl jewellery
It is considered ideal to restring your pearl jewellery once a year if you wear them often. Knotting also prevents possible damage from the pearls rubbing against each other.
- Use compartmentalized boxes
To avoid tangles and scratches in the jewellery, lay them separately in a compartmentalized jewellery box since pearls are delicate and are prone to damage.
