Peals are natural gemstones, so there are a few things to know when taking care of them.

It is perfectly fine to wear your pearls in the water. The ocean can be rehydrating for pearls, but do be mindful of chlorine pools and shampoos when showering. You want to protect the integrity of your pearl, so it is best that you put on any hairspray, cosmetics, sunscreens and perfumes first, and pop your pearl accessories on last.

To clean your pearls, wipe them with a soft, damp cloth to remove excess oils and dirt. There is no need for detergents, alcohol or other cleaning solutions. Your pearls will respond naturally to a gentle, chemical-free clean.
