CARE FOR PEARLS

Pearls are made naturally by the oyster or mussel. They will retain its natural colour and lustre if well maintained. After each wear, use a soft dry cloth to wipe your pearls as perspiration and body oil from the skin is acidic and may affect the pearl's lustre. Pearl jewelry may require restringing with regular use and over time. Pearlylustre customer service: pearlylustre@yahoo.com.

All Jewelry Accessories should be treated with care. Here are some tips to look after your items to ensure they continue to look good:

  • Avoid exposure to water, perfume, hairspray, lotion and chemicals.
  • Do not wear to sleep, bathe or during sporting activities.
  • Clean after use with a soft dry cloth.
  • Keep in the jewelry pouch provided or small plastic bag to avoid scratches.
  • Store in a dry area. Avoid hot & humid areas.

Should you notice the sparkle of the stones is dull or slight tarnish from regular wear, you may wash with mild hand soap with cold water or use professional jewelry cleaner to restore to its full sparkle. Use a soft toothbrush to reach the small corners to clean if need be. Body oil & sweat may cause the plating to tarnish, depending on the acidity of each individual. High humidity and dampness may also cause tarnish. We recommend not to wear full time and to remove after wear and keep in dry area.

If worn often, pearls should be cleaned and restrung professionally once a year. Between cleanings, wipe pearls gently with a damp cloth.

CARE FOR SILVER

The First Rule of Silver Care 

Sterling silver tarnishes, especially when exposed to salt air and products containing sulfur, such as rubber bands and some papers. However, silver that is regularly used typically needs less care, so Pearly Lustre strongly encourages you to wear your silver every day.

General Silver Care 

Using a small amount of Pearly Lustre’s jewelry soft cloth, gently rub the silver several times.  This will remove the tarnish and dullness, keeping your sterling silver like new. Please note: chlorine and bleach accelerate tarnishing and should be avoided. 

Storing Silver 

Once cleaned and polished, silver must be kept dry and properly stored.
