CARE & STRINGING

Pearls should be strung on a high-grade nylon cord, and re-strung every few years. Most necklaces are strung with a tiny knot in-between each pearl, so that if and when the strand breaks, only a single pearl may be lost. Modern cosmetics and our environment are damaging to pearl nacre. Perfume, hairspray and cosmetics should be applied and allowed to dry before donning pearl jewelry.

Each time, when pearl jewelry is removed, the pearls should be wiped gently with a soft pearl cloth, as this removes the chemicals and body oils from everyday wear. Cultured pearls with strong nacre that are cleaned and re-strung regularly will retain their luster and beauty for generations.
