How To Care For Your Pearl Jewellery

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.

The two most important factors determining a pearl’s quality

5 Colour-combos in Pearl Jewellery 4

When you want to buy the best pearls, there are two factors to look for: luster and the blemishing. Once you have decided on the shape, colour and size of the pearls you want to buy, these are the factors you need to look for. The final goal is to buy pearls with the right amount of luster with minimal blemishing. Obviously, your personal preferences play a very large role in determining the pearl you eventually buy, but you must consider these two factors.

What is blemishing in pearls?

A very miniscule percentage of pearls will have no blemishes or spots or dents on them. These are naturally formed jewels and any imperfection on them is due to natural causes. Blemishes could be anything from varying shades of colour, to smudges or small incisions on the pearl. Normally, these imperfections are small in themselves. It is only when someone looks at them up close that the blemishes become visible. When buying pearls, try to pick pearls with the least amount of blemishing. Obviously, the clearer the pearl, the higher the price, so you need to find the right balance based on your tastes.

What is the luster or a pearl?

Luster is the shine of a pearl. It basically means the brighter and more reflective a pearl, the better it is. In the bright lights of a jewellery store, every pearl looks bright, making your job difficult. A lustrous pearl will have a sharp reflection of the surroundings on its surface. So how do you pick the most lustrous pearl? When you would like to inspect a pearl better, ask for it to be taken out of its case, and view it in a less bright area to determine its luster. A pearl with high luster will give a crisper reflection on its surface as compared to a dull pearl. Dull pearls also tend to look chalky when taken out of their cases. A good way to compare pearls is to take pearls you own that have high luster. This way you can compare and buy the brightest pearls as per your tastes.

Choosing the perfect pearl

If you want a pearl which is perfectly round, has no blemishes and has excellent luster, you will find it difficult for a variety of reasons including price and availability. Natural pearls with these qualities are quite expensive and the only other option is to buy imitation pearls, which is not what you want. However, if you are willing to look around and find pearls with fewer blemishes and acceptable luster, in a shape approaching round, you will have better luck. Pearls are the ultimate foil to any dress you wear. As jewels, they are unique in the sense that they accentuate the wearer and her dress more than becoming the focal point of attention. If you have a clear idea of the kind of outfits you would like to wear pearls with, you will easily be able to buy the right pearls.
