Keep Your Pearl Jewelry Always Beautiful and Ready to Wear
Pearl jewelry requires proper care. Though exceptionally shock resistant and unlikely to crack, pearls are easily scratched. When wearing your pearl necklace or other pearl jewelry, take care that the pearls do not come in contact with sharp objects or other gemstones. Pearls are organic gemstones born of pearl oysters. Because heat or ultraviolet rays may cause changes in color or deterioration in quality, do not leave pearls where they will be exposed to direct sunlight or high heat or humidity.
Pearls are vulnerable to acids and other chemicals. To protect your pearls from the acids in perspiration, we suggest that you wipe them gently with a soft cloth after every wearing. Also take care to avoid contact with vinegar, fruit juices or other acidic substances. Hair spray, perfumes or other cosmetics may dull the radiance of your pearls. Always put on your jewelry after applying makeup and hair products.

Storage is an important element of pearl care. When storing pearl jewelry, use a compartmentalized jewelry box to keep pearls separate from other items.
