4 Tips for maintaining pearl jewelry

4 Tips for maintaining pearl jewelry – pay attention to the below following four things!

The soft and gentle luster of pearls always attracts attention, and when you fall in love with pearls, the first thing you need to do is to know how to take care of them.

Just like its gentle appearance, pearls are extremely fragile organic jewelry. Its main component is calcium carbonate. If not properly maintained, they can easily turn yellow or cause the nacre layer to fall off.

Pay attention to the following points when preserving and maintaining pearl jewelry:

Avoid letting pearls touch water for a long time
Although pearls are known as the children of the ocean, they are afraid of water, especially water containing other chemicals, such as chlorine-containing tap water or sweat.

If water penetrates into the pores on the surface, it will be difficult to dry, and it may damage the nacre layer over time. Therefore, pearl jewelry must be taken off when exercising, swimming, bathing, etc. where it is exposed to water for a long time.

Avoid the pearls from drying out too much
Although it is said before that pearls cannot be soaked in water, if they are placed in an environment that is too dry, it will cause damage to the pearls in the long run.

In fact, the body’s own moisture and oil can maintain pearls when they come into contact with pearls. Therefore, the best way is to wear them regularly and maintain them properly after wearing them.

Avoid contact of pearl jewelry with acids or chemicals
Since the main component of pearls is calcium carbonate, when they come into contact with acidic substances such as acetic acid, they will slowly dissolve, so they must not come into contact with acidic substances!

In addition, most chemicals, such as perfumes, cosmetics, setting liquids, etc., may corrode the nacre layer and make the pearls lose their luster, so it is recommended not to spray these cosmetic products directly on the pearls.

And if you use silver-washing water or silver-wiping cloth to clean metal, be careful to avoid pearls when wiping! And never wear pearl jewelry while cleaning or other activities that may expose you to chemicals!

Avoid contact between pearl jewelry and sharp or hard objects
Pearl is an extremely fragile semi-precious stone with a Mohs hardness of only 2.5 to 4.5 degrees, which is about the same hardness as a fingernail. It is very easy to be injured if it comes into contact with other hard objects! So be careful not to let beautiful pearl jewelry come into contact with other items when wearing it.

Key tips for maintaining pearl jewelry

In addition to the above avoidance of contact, the best way to care for pearls is to wear them frequently, and in order to avoid contact with beauty products, when wearing pearl jewelry, the “last step” should be done after makeup, perfume and other styling steps are completed. “You should put on pearl jewelry before you wear it”, and you should “take off your pearl jewelry first” when taking them off. After taking them off, it is best to wipe them gently with a soft cloth dipped in some distilled pure water.

With proper care, beautiful pearl jewelry can shine for a long time.
