FEW TIPS FOR THOSE WHO PURCHASE PEARLS
Pearls are extremely vulnerable to acids, alkalines and extremes of humidity. To preserve their radiance, avoid coming the pearls into contact with cosmetics, hair spray and perfume. Always put on your jewellery as a final touch, after applying make-up and styling hair. The pearl’s luster can also be harmed by perspiration. To prevent this, before returning your pearls to the jewellery box, wipe them gently with a soft cloth. Be careful not to dip pearl strands in water as water can weaken the silk thread. The thread may get dirty or stretch. Even if you don’t wear your pearls often, we recommend that you have your pearls restrung every year. It is also best to avoid direct sunlight or high temperatures. Pearls are exceptionally cohesive and shock-resistant, but may be scratched by contact with sharp objects therefore you should keep them in a box. If the radiance of your jewellery appears to be diminishing, take it to a specialist.
