Top 5 Tips to look after your Pearl Jewellery

Pearl jewellery exudes a timeless quality, so it is therefore worth keeping your collection in tip top condition.
With our expert guide you can treat your luxury Pearl pieces with the care and attention that these precious gems deserve

1. Pearls are an organic gemstone, composed of Calcium Carbonate, which need to be carefully taken care of in order to be kept looking their best.
Exposure to chemicals, such as those from cosmetics and perfumes, can harm a Pearl’s appearance, so be mindful of the products your jewellery comes into contact with when being worn.

2. Over time and with wear, the natural oils found in skin can affect a Pearl’s unique finish.
We recommend gently wiping over your Pearl jewellery with a very soft, clean cloth after being worn to help the stones retain their glamorous lustre.

3. Do not store your collection of Pearls with any other jewellery.
Their delicate nature means that they scratch easily, particularly when Pearls are exposed to the metals or gemstones of other jewellery.

4. It is a good idea to use professional products for routine cleaning and maintenance of your treasured Pearl jewellery.
