Caring for Pearls

This is the birthstone for all those people who were born in June. Pearls are classics, every woman should have a pearl necklace or at least a pair of earrings made of pearls.

Pearls are softer than other gems and should be handled with care. Pearls should be wiped with a soft cloth after they’re worn, since body oil, makeup, hair spray and perfume can spot the surface. Use mild soapy water to clean pearls; do not use cleaning solvents or put them in an ultrasonic cleaner. Store pearls in a soft cloth or pouch.
