How to Take Care of Pearl Jewellery?

Are you wondering how to take care of the lovely pearl set you received on your birthday?

It will undoubtedly be a memorable and timeless collection in your jewellery collection, but beautiful things like pearls need tender care.

As you may already know, pearls are the gift of the sea. They are one the most precious things you can possess, and they require care and warmth.

This article will discuss what should be done and what shouldn’t be done to take care of your pearl jewellery.

Taking Care of Your Pearl Jewelry

Taking care of your gorgeous pearl jewellery is not a very tough thing to do. Following the steps mentioned here is all you have to keep in mind.

Cleaning and Storing

●      Soft cloths for cleaning

Use a soft cloth for cleaning your pearls. Apply water, or a pearl cleaner, to the cloth to moisten it. Wipe your jewellery gently to clean.

●      Use soapy water

You can occasionally wash your pearls in soapy water.

●      Do not mix your ornaments

Pearls are much more sensitive than other jewels. So, it is also essential to keep them separate from other jewellery, especially metallic ornaments.

●      Wait before storing

Do not store your pearls immediately after cleaning them. Let them be completely dry before you store them.

●      Soft cases for storing

Storing your pearls in the right way is crucial. Store them wrapped in a piece of soft cloth, a soft pouch, or a case given by your jeweller, away from coarse or abrasive objects.

●      Best storage conditions

The conditions in which you store your pearls give them the care they need. Expose them regularly to humid conditions. You can keep a glass of water in the compartment to provide the moisture the pearls need.

Substances to Avoid

●      Spray and perfume

Things like hair spray or perfume contain substances that deteriorate the surface of pearls. When you need to re-apply them, make sure to remove your pearls.

●      Avoid rough fabrics

Interestingly, the fabric of the clothes you are wearing with your pearls can also damage them. Avoid wearing fabrics like Shetland wool if you are wearing pearls.

●      Chemical cleaners and agents

There are a few substances that are extremely harmful to pearls. Some of them are chlorine, vinegar, and ammonia. Ensure that you do not keep any of these substances anywhere near your pearls. 

Never put your original pearl jewellery in substances like powdered cleaners, detergents, dishwashers, cleaners, ammonia cleaners, baking soda, bleaches, chemical cleaners and varnishes containing bleach or ammonia, etc.

When and When Not to Wear

●      Before and after stepping out

Remember that the last things you should wear before going out are your pearl jewellery. They must also be the first thing you should take off when you return home.

This is because pearls are delicate, and you don’t want your clothes to scratch their surfaces. Just imagine wearing a dress over your real pearl necklace!

●      Do not wear them during chores

Do not wear your pearls while you do your household chores. There is a high possibility of your pearls getting damaged when you do household work with them. For instance, the detergent can corrode the surface of the pearls when you are doing the dishes with your pearl bracelet on.

●      Perspiration and pearls

Human perspiration can also damage pearls. Body oils and sweat contains natural body acids that can be unsuitable for your jewellery. Wear your pearl necklace at least half an hour after applying beauty care products that may stimulate perspiration.

A List of Don’ts for Pearl Jewellery

Here are a few things that you must never do to keep your pearl ornaments shining forever.

●      No sharp objects

Do not use harsh objects to clean delicate pearl jewellery, such as toothbrushes, scouring pads, other kinds of brushes, etc.

●      No steam and heat cleaning

Never use steam or heat cleaners for your loose pearls.

●      No acids

Do not forget to keep your pearls away from food items or drinks high in acidic contents, such as lemon, fruit juices, alcoholic beverages, etc. Any kind of acid, no matter being very mild, can affect your pearls.

●      No swimming

Do not wear your pearl jewellery in swimming pools. It is obvious that you do not want to lose your beautiful belongings in the water.

●      No plastic

Do not carry your pearls in a plastic bag. Plastic bags can emit certain chemicals that may deteriorate the surface of the pearls.

●      No hot objects

Leaving your pearls where there is a source of heat is a bad idea. Never keep your pearls near the fireplace, near the iron or stove, on top of a TV set, or any appliance that turns hot with use.

 

Can Damaged Pearls Be Restored?

Sometimes, stained or mildly damaged can be restored to their natural glamour. The layer or platelet of a pearl is the nacre. Once a nacre is damaged or scratched, there is almost no way to bring back its original beauty. A bit of polishing or smoothing can be done; however, it will not return to its fresh state.

Conclusion

So these were some of our tips which you can follow to take proper care of your pearl jewellery. These tips are applicable for any kind of pearl ornaments, such as a genuine pearl necklace, pearl bangles, pearl earrings, and so on. Do give attention to the don’ts as well.

Beautiful pearl jewellery is such a wonderful thing to have. Taking care of it is simple if you obey some rules to clean and store it.

2 Easy Tips To Help You Judge Pearl Quality

Tips to Determine Pearl Quality

Whether you’re a pro or an amateur, buying pearls becomes an easy task with these 2 super useful tips. After deciding upon the pearl type, color, and size, look out for these 2 defining factors – luster and blemishing. The end goal is to buy pearls with the most lustre and least blemishing. But consider your personal preferences first, of course. What you like is what matters at the end of the day.

What is luster?

Luster refers to the shine of a pearl. So, the more shiny and reflective a pearl is, the better is its quality. A pearl with the most amount of luster will have definite reflections of its surroundings. One way to determine a pearl’s quality is to view it in low light and see the kind of reflection it gives out. A good quality pearl will give out a sharp reflection as compared to a dull one.

What is blemishing?

Pearls with next to no blemishing don’t exist. A blemish could be varying shades of color, tiny dents or such imperfections. So it becomes imperative to determine the amount of blemishing on the pearls you’re looking to buy. The trick is to look at the pearl in bright light as these blemishes may not be visible to the naked eye in regular lighting.

It is important to note here that a pearl with the most amount of lustre and minimal blemishing could also be on the expensive side. So the shopper should pick the right balance between quality and preference. Sri Jagdamba Pearls offers a great variety of pearls, and is the perfect place to indulge in some jewelry buying. Happy pearl shopping!

Birthstones of March: Aquamarine and Bloodstone

Often linked with zodiac signs, different gemstones represent different birth months of people. These birthstones have a positive impact on the life of people who wear them. Each month has a couple of different birthstones that a person can choose from.

March, signifies the transition of the seasons from the chilling winters to the warm summers, as do the birthstones of this month. Symbolizing warm soothing spring, the birthstones for March are Aquamarine and Bloodstone. Both these stones are polar opposites when it comes to physical appearance, but they both represent the perseverance of the health of the wearer.

Aquamarine

Derived from the Latin word ‘aqua’ and ‘marine’ meaning water and sea, Aquamarine is not only the birthstone for March, but also a symbol for youth, hope and health.

This stone’s colours range from pastel blue and greenish blue, to the more rare and expensive darker shades. Aquamarine is usually found as a large hexagonal crystal which makes it suitable for cleaving in larger carats. Larger the gemstone, darker and more intense is the hue.

Bloodstone

Found as a pebble, this dark green stone with red vivid spots of iron oxide all over it has it deep roots in Greek mythology. Known as ‘heliotrope’ by the ancient Greeks, it is believed that the bloodstone had the power to turn the sun red. Also known as the Red Jasper, it is of two varieties, one with the dark red spots or veins (heliotrope) and the other sports faded red spots and is more opaque (plasma).

Bloodstone at jpearls

For a Bloodstone, a solid, green coloured stone with dark red veins of ferrous oxide is considered the best and can be cut into a plethora of shapes.

Even though Bloodstone is devoid of the lustre that Aquamarine possesses, people choose this for what it symbolizes, cleansing and realignment. Preserve and enhance your health with Aquamarine and Bloodstone, this March.
