1. Keep pearls away from chemicals found in perfumes, cosmetics, and hair spray which can harm the surface and the luster of the pearls.
2. To clean pearls use a soft cloth moistened with water or a commercial product especially for pearls.
3. Store pearls wrapped in a soft cloth or pouch to protect the pearls from abrasive objects.
4. Pearls are knotted with silk cord between each pearl to protect the nacre (outside covering) and if the silk cord should break all the pearls will not scatter all over. If you wear your pearls often, they should be checked often to make sure the silk cord is still strong and should be reknotted a couple of times a year.
