Caring For Pearl Jewelry

There are many different types of pearls on the market today that all offer something just a little bit different in size, shape, color, and luster. Despite all of the differences, all pearl jewelry is susceptible to damage if they are not cared for properly. It is important when you own peals to learn how to take care of it, so that you can preserve your investment and wear it long into the future.

Regardless of what sort of pearl jewelry you have, you need to take extra special care. Pearls are very beautiful but they can also be damaged very easily. The first rule of thumb is to always keep your pearl jewelry separate from the other jewelry that you have. If you mix your pearls with your diamonds your pearls will end up scratched and they will lose their luster in a hurry.

Next, you should make sure that your pearls are not exposed to high temperatures or sunlight for long periods of time. What happens when a pearl is kept in this environment is that it dries out, the outer shell will lose its color, and luster and your pearl will not be nearly as beautiful as it was originally. Keeping your pearls in a closed jewelry box away from sunlight is a good idea.
