How do I Care for Pearls?

A  When properly cared for, pearls can last a lifetime.  The best way to care for pearls is to wear them often, as the body's natural oils keep pearls lustrous.  It's best you keep perfume, makeup, and hairspray away.  Chemicals found in these products tend to dull the luster of your beautiful pearls. 

It is highly recommended that you put your pearls on last when getting ready, and make them the first thing you take off when you're back home.  Before you store them away, wipe them with a soft cloth and store them separately from your other jewelry to avoid scratching their tender surfaces.


How should I store my jewelry? 

    

A Some pros prefer lined drawers, where "everything is laid out and partitioned off," especially if it's fine jewelry.  Keep jewelry pieces separate and ideally wrapped in velvet, silk bag or a plastic zip-lock bag.  

Old frame and a piece of screen can be used to create an earring display.  Another option is to use burlap or, vintage boxes, and muffin tins.  Get more ideas for jewelry organization. 

  


We know how watches and timepieces are valuable collectibles and sentimental.  Which is why repairing a broken one is an important option for those interested in keeping their valued pieces in working order.
