cleaning pearl jewelry

South Sea Pearls are beautiful and valuable gems that require special care to maintain their luster and longevity. Here are some tips for caring for South Sea Pearl jewelry:

  1. Store South Sea Pearl jewelry separately from other jewelry in a soft pouch or box to avoid scratches and damage.

  2. Avoid exposing South Sea Pearls to heat, chemicals, and direct sunlight, as these can cause discoloration and damage to the surface of the pearl.

  3. Clean South Sea Pearl jewelry with a soft, damp cloth and avoid using harsh chemicals or abrasive materials.

  4. If you wear your South Sea Pearl jewelry frequently, have it restrung by a professional jeweler every year or two to prevent the silk or nylon cord from stretching and breaking.

  5. Apply makeup, hairspray, and perfume before putting on your South Sea Pearl jewelry to avoid exposing the pearls to chemicals.
