Taking care of your pearl necklace
Question from Amber R.
How do I take care of my Pearl Necklace?
We asked our expert.
Nasrin Sabghi says:
The string can weaken due to weight and exposure to your body over time. Have your pearls checked every one or two years to make sure the string is still sturdy enough to hold your pearls up.
Be extra gentle with cleaning: Don’t use water or chemicals! Pearls are very fragile gems; a soft cloth and a wipe after every use will do.
Put them away correctly: To avoid strain on the cord when you’re not wearing it, don’t hang the necklace up.
Don’t sleep in your pearls.
Lay it flat and keep it in a cloth-lined container away from other pieces of jewelry that could scratch the pearls.
Take care of your Pearls and they will take care of you for generations to come.
Pearls are a timeless classic that never go out of style.
