Proper care for your pearl jewelry

Proper Care for Your Pearl Jewelry

There simply is nothing you can compare to the luster that Pearl jewelry has. Whether you have some pearl earrings or a pearl necklace, they have a glow that just yearns to be admired. Now, whether you bought your own pearl jewelry or received one as a gift, you need to know that it is very important to take good care of it so that you would be able to use it for a long time.

If you would be comparing pearls to diamonds, pearls are a lot softer. And so, pearls need special care. Unlike pearls, diamonds have basically been compacted for millions of years deep in the earth while pearls are made and cultivated in oysters’ shells. Oysters are the ones that produce the pearl’s nacre, which gives it a luminous glow. So pearls do not have the hardness and compactness that diamonds possess.

Remember that you should not wear your pearl jewelry everywhere you go in everything that you do, particularly when you are engaging in physical activity like working out in the gym or planting in the yard. This is because the perspiration and dirt would just shorten the life of pearl jewelry. So, although pearls are generally made in the ocean, it does not follow that it would be fine to wear them as you go scuba diving, swimming or surfing. You should know that pearls are sensitive to elements so you must not show them off all the time.

Also, certain chemicals in perfumes, hairsprays and lotions can damage pearl jewelry. These chemicals could shorten the life of pearl jewelry. So it would be best to wear your pearl jewelry after you have done everything — like you have already put lotion on, have sprayed your perfume on, etc. so that the amount of their exposure to these chemicals would be limited.

And similar to other kinds of jewelry, pearl jewelry will get dirty over time. You could clean them by yourself with the use of a slightly damp soft and clean cloth. Do not use any scrubbing device such as a toothbrush or a sponge, as well as any soap or detergent.
