Cleaning your pearls – it must be done!

May 11, 2010 | Post by Ice Jewelry

Keep your pearls clean!We love our pearls, so it’s important to treat them right. Ladies, work to keep your pearls spic and span so they’re always shiny and looking incredible!

Girls should always put their pearls on last to avoid getting makeup and hairspray on them. Once in a while though, we have to take extra measures to make them pop.

Pearls come from the sea, so they’re different from gold and silvery jewelry. You should never wash your beautiful pearls with harsh chemicals! Instead, try rinsing them in warm water with a very mild soap.

Also, never use an abrasive cloth. A rough surface could damage the pearls and chip away at their nacre coating. Search for a soft and gentle material and wipe them carefully.

Finally, let them air dry. It may take a while, but the best things come to those who wait!ADNFCR-2807-ID-19746173-ADNFCR

    One extra tip about “air drying…” Do not hang them up to dry! This stretches out the wet cord they're knotted on and will ultimately leave spaces.

    I generally get the very best ideas reading these blogs. Many thanks for nice images as well. I love pearl jewelry and working to buy a fine pearl necklace. .
