Caring for Pearls

With proper care, the natural beauty of pearls can be enjoyed for generations.

Please consider the following advice when caring for pearls:

  • Some chemicals may harm pearls. Wait until after applying makeup, perfume and hair products before putting on pearl jewellery.
  • Wipe pearl jewellery with a pearl chamois or soft cloth before putting it away.
  • Store pearl jewellery wrapped in a soft cloth to protect it from rubbing against harder gems or abrasive objects.
  • Occasionally clean your pearls gently with a cloth dipped in alcohol diluted with warm water or in mild soapy water. Rinse the cloth in fresh water and wipe pearls clean. Dry with a soft cloth.
  • Strands will require restringing from time to time, depending on how often they are worn. It is advisable to seek guidance on restringing from your Australian South Sea pearl supplier.
