Pearl Care Tips and Tricks

Posted: November 20, 2018

Do you ever wonder if you are giving your precious items the correct kind of care? Whether you love the look of a blinding diamond ring, a perfectly polished watch or a gorgeous strand of pearls, here at E.R Sawyer Jewelers we want to help you maintain your jewelry in the best condition possible.

So let's talk pearls... these delicate beauties require consistent proper care.  If you choose to clean your pearls at home we want to make sure you have the knowledge to do so. After every wear,  take a soft cloth and gently wipe them down. Avoid wearing pearls when applying makeup, hairspray, lotion and other cosmetic products. Add them as a final touch to an outfit to avoid breakage when getting dressed.

After you have removed and wiped down your pearls, proper storage becomes important. Although pearls are timeless pieces, they can be delicate and require special care. Store them on a flat surface to avoid potential stretching from happening. Last but not least, pearls do best in a moist environment to keep them from drying out.. so where them often! How easy is that!?

Just remember pearls should be the final touch to an outfit, last on first off is the rule to live by!
