All the valuable things can only last long under her master’s careful maintenance; and maintenance and caring themselves are part of the products’ culture of use. Beauty, nobleness and delicacy, are just like the beautiful you, need us to take good care of. Let’s have a look at the tips on keeping our beloved pearls young and beautiful forever.
1. Keep away from the erosion of acids: To remain luster and color of the pearl unchanged, you need to keep it away from acidic or alkaline chemicals, such as perfume, soap, hair spray, etc. Don’t swim or bathe with pearl jewelry on you. So, please wear your lovely pearls after you have finished the make-up.
2. Keep away from the kitchen: There are tiny holes in the surface of the pearl, so do not make it absorb the dirty materials existing in the air. It main absorb chemicals like hair spray or perfume. So, be sure not to do hairs with beautiful pearls on. You should also be careful when in the kitchen. You’d better not to wear pearls when cooking, because the vapor and oil smoke in the kitchen will penetrate into the pearls, making it turn yellow.
3. Clear pearls with cashmere cloth: Every time after wearing pearl ornament (especially when it is hot), you should put it away after you have cleared it, which can help to keep the luster of pearls. And you’d better use sheep leather or flannel. Be sure not to use facial paper, because frictions caused by the facial paper will wear down the pearls.
4. Keep away from clear water: don’t clean pearl necklace with clear water. Water can penetrate into the pearls, because it will be hard to dry the water; and besides, the water may make the inner side of the pearls ferment, turning the pearl thread into green. If you sweat a lot when wearing pearl ornament, you can wipe it clean carefully with soft wet towel. After that, dry it in the airy place, and then put them away in the casket. You may clear it with light alkaline water once in a while, which can help keep the pearls glossy (apply only to those stringed by nylon thread, not apply to those stringed by silk thread). If the pearls turn yellow, there is a remedy: soak pearls in dilute hydrochloric acid, which can dissolve away the yellow crust. Doing this can help to make the pearls reappear their beautiful and glossy luster. But if the pearls have turned seriously yellow, then the color cannot be inverted.
5. In need of some air: Don’t lock pearl in the safe box for a long period of time, and don’t seal the box with adhesive tape. Pearls also need fresh air once in a while. So you’d better take the out and wear them every few month, making them have some breath. Or else if you put them away in the box for long, pearls will be more likely to turn yellow. (The saying- “one getting old as the pearls becoming yellow” -just means it.)
6. Avoid exposure in strong sunshine: Because there are a small portion of moistures contained in pearls, you should store them in the shady place. Avoid direct exposure in strong sunshine, and don’t put them in the place where it is too dry, either, because that will lead to the dehydration of pearls.
7. Avoid scrapes from hard things: Store pearl ornaments desperately to avoid scrapes. If you want to wear pearls in your clothes, then it would be better if the clothes are soft, because rough cloth may scrape your valuable pearls.
8. Keep flat in storage: Do not hang the pearl ornament for a long time, which will make the silk thread become loose and deformed. So, keep it flat in storage.
9. Pearl ring: When taking off the pearl ring, hold the handle part or mental part of the ring. Don’t pressure the pearls. Or else, dirty things from your hands or sticky things excreted by your skin may be stuck on the pearls.
10. Regular examination, change the thread every three years: The thread may become loose when being used for a long period of time. You can send your pearl ornaments to our company every one or two years, and we will help you to maintain and clear your ornaments, check if the thread is loose or not and help you to get the thread exchanged if necessary;
