Care of Pearls.
Like any precious heirloom, pearl jewelry will require some care to preserve its freshness and beauty.

Cleaning pearls.
Occasionally clean the pearls gently with a cloth dipped in alcohol diluted with warm water, or in mild soapy water. Then rinse the cloth in fresh water and wipe the pearls clean. Dry them with a soft cloth.

The following hints will help you keep your pearls looking their lustrous best.

Important note for pearl strand necklaces and bracelets.
Strands will need restringing from time to time, depending on how often they are worn. Consult with your jeweler annually on restringing.
