Caring for your pearls:
1. When you put them on, wear them after you’re done with everything. When you’re taking everything off, take them off first. As an organic gem composed of calcium carbonate, pearls are more vulnerable to the chemicals found in cosmetics, hair spray, and perfume. Dress, style your hair, apply your make-up, and spray on your perfume before you put on any pearl jewelry.
2. Keep dyed pearls out of direct sunlight for extended periods of time to prevent fading.
3. If pearls get dull put a small drop of olive oil on your fingers and rub the pearl. Wipe off with a soft cloth.
4. Take off your pearl rings when washing your hands. The chlorine and other chemicals in standard tap water can damage the surface of your pearls.
