Pearls Care Guide

Pearl's Care Guide

Posted by Benjamin Boltner on

Regular care for pearls
Preserving the beauty of your pearls is easy. After wearing, wipe gently with a soft, dry or slightly damp cloth. This simple measure helps prevent the accumulation of dirt and protects the beads from possible damage caused by sweat, which can be acidic or alkaline.

The hardness of pearls
Pearls are softer than many gemstones, scoring only 3½ to 4½ points on the Mohs scale of hardness, with 1 being the softest (like talc) and 10 being the hardest (like diamond). Because of their relative softness, pearls can be easily damaged. To avoid unnecessary wear and tear, store your pearls separately from other jewelry to prevent them from being scratched or chipped by harder gemstones.

Pearl necklace care
An important aspect of pearl care is monitoring the integrity of pearl necklaces. If you notice gaps between the beads, it may be time to re-thread the necklace. Regular threading not only extends the life of your pearl necklace, but also prevents possible breakages and losses.

If you follow these care measures, your pearls will shine and be treasured for many years to come.
