The Golden Rule
Pearl jewellery should be the last thing you put on in the morning and the first thing you take off at night. Cosmetics, hair products and perfume can all cause damage to pearls, so following this rule will help you preserve your pearls’ lustre.
We recommend storing pearls separately from other jewellery because pearls can be scratched. Segmented jewellery boxes are great for this. When travelling use a jewellery pouch to keep your pearls separate where possible.
It is recommended that you have strung pearl items restrung every 1-4 years, depending on how often the item is worn. Keep an eye on the string; if there are signs of stretching, discolouration or fraying have the item restrung as soon as possible to avoid the string breaking. We offer a restringing service in our London head office.
The best way to keep pearls looking radiant is to wipe them gently with a clean, soft cloth when necessary. This will remove any surface dirt, keeping the pearls’ lustre visible.
