9 pearl care tips
Avoid using hairspray, deodorant, and makeup on the pearls. The best solution for this is to be the last thing to do after finishing the beads.
Let us wind and knot your pearl necklace 1-2 times a year, because the thread stretches when you wear it and can become porous.
Be careful with housework. Detergents contain chemicals that are harmful to the pearls.
Protect your pearls from excessive heat. The heat can damage the structure of the pearl and make it brittle. You should also take off your pearls when you go to the sauna.
After wearing, clean the pearls with a soft, damp cloth to remove sweat and cosmetics. Then let the pearls dry at room temperature.
Clean the pearl with lukewarm water and mild detergent 1-2 times a year. Then let the pearls dry at room temperature.
You should always keep your pearls and your jewelry separately, because the precious metal jewelry can scratch the pearls. A separate jewelry pouch is best. Ideally, this jewelry case is made of silk and not cotton. Cotton can remove moisture from the pearls.
Despite their origin, pearls are afraid of water. Take off your pearls before going into the water. Pearls do not tolerate water containing chlorine very well. If the pearls should get wet anyway, you can let them dry at room temperature.
It is preferable not to wear your pearls on your skin during sweaty activities or very hot summer days, as the pearls are not good at sweat.
