How to Take Care of Your Pearl Jewelry

Learn how to clean and store your pearl jewelry:

Town Talk Pearl Care Kit, Jewel Brite™ liquid jewelry cleaner or a mild soap and water solution will work well to clean your pearls and the crystals. Allow the jewelry to dry before wearing especially if the pearls and crystals are strung on silk or cotton thread as the weight of the beads could stretch the fibers.

Never use ultrasonic cleaners or steamers as these will damage the delicate pearl surface.

Gently wipe the jewelry with a soft cloth after each wearing then store pearls in a soft cloth pouch or wrap them in a soft cloth. Pearls are a soft gemstone material and should be treated delicately; they require moisture to prevent them from becoming too dry and brittle, so avoid storing in plastic bags, which do not allow air flow.
