How to Clean and Store Your Treasured Beads and Jewellery

Care and Cleaning of Pearls

Pearls are an organic gem and they require specific care that will protect them for a very long time. They can be harmed by contact with many chemicals found in household cleaners, perfumes, cosmetics and hair care products of all kinds. Pearls get dirty, just like any other jewellery, but you have to clean them with care or you'll end up with damaged gems. Use these cleaning tips to make sure your pearls live a long and lovely life.

  • Wipe your pearls with a soft, lint free cloth before putting them away for storage.

  • Never store your pearls in any type of plastic bag. Plastic can emit a chemical that will cause the surface of the Pearl to deteriorate.

  • Put your pearls on AFTER you have applied makeup, perfume or lotions

  • Always remove Pearls before exercising or otherwise getting sweaty. (It's not the water or the salt, but the pH of sweat is not good for them.)

  • Store your pearls separately as they can be scratched by metal or stones on other jewellery

With proper care, your fine pearl jewellery will last for generations.

Use Storage Techniques that Do Not Damage Jewellery

DON'T put all your jewellery into one drawer. A diamond stone can scratch a pearl necklace or gold bead. Keep jewellery pieces separate and, ideally, wrapped in velvet, silk or a plastic zip-lock bag.

Care and Storage of Gold Beads and Jewellery

Remove gold jewellery before entering hot tubs or swimming pools.
The chlorine in the water can erode gold jewellery. The risk of precious gemstones falling out of settings is also high. Keep gold jewellery away from harsh household cleaning fluids as they can create abrasions on gold. Clean gold jewelry with warm water and detergent-free soap. Use a soft-bristled brush to clean the pieces.
