How to clean pearls

Cleaning pearls should always follow a very simple routine.

After wear, remove your pearls before applying any cosmetics or cleansing products.

Simply wipe the pearls with a slightly damp, soft clean cloth so as to remove any perspiration or perfume.

Cleaning chemicals and treatments
In our experience, there is no need to use any special chemicals or treatment cloths to clean pearls.

We do not recommend placing your pearls in an ultrasonic cleaner as this may tighten the nacre structure of the pearl and dull the brightness of its lustre.

Restringing pearl necklaces and bracelets
We recommend that you consider restringing your pearls on a regular basis, perhaps every 18 months to two years.

Professional restringing will help protect the pearls from damage as a result stringing becoming frayed or stretched.

We recommend using a very high quality Japanese nylon-based thread for suppleness and strength, but are also able to string on silk if you prefer.
