There are a few things you can do to ensure your pearls remain bright and beautiful for generations to come.
Cosmetics, sunblock, perfume and hairspray can dramatically dull the luster, as can your body oils and perspiration. Wait at least 30 minutes after applying any products before your put your pearls on, always take them off before getting ready for bed, give them a wipe down with a damp, soft cloth and never sleep in them.
To clean steel and plated jewellery, dip a soft cloth into soapy water and gently wipe down the jewellery. Be sure to avoid antibacterial soaps that can tarnish your jewellery. You can also restore shine by rubbing surface with a dry soft cloth.
