When Australian South Sea Pearls are cared for correctly, they remain absolutely radiant. Fortunately, pearls do not need detergents, alcohol, or special cleaning solutions. They respond best to a soft cloth to remove excess oil and debris.
When wearing your pearls, be careful to avoid contact with cosmetics, sunscreens, perfumes and hairspray as they can sometimes contain harmful chemicals. It is also best to avoid swimming, showering, sleeping, cleaning or participating in any rigorous activity whilst wearing your pearls.
When you finally store your pearls, avoid hanging them as this can stretch out the silk knots between each pearl and lead to strand breakage. It’s also important to store them in a soft cloth, velvet or in their original jewellery box to avoid scratches. If they are kept in their original case, they can also avoid direct sunlight, which can be damaging over a long period of time.
