A pearl ring is a beautiful investment that can be passed down as a precious family heirloom. But pearls are very fragile and can be easily damaged, causing them to lose their luster and color.
However with good care you keep your pearl ring looking beautiful. Here’s what you need to know about cleaning and taking care of your pearl ring.
Your pearl ring should be the last touch to your outfit to avoid the application of makeup, hairspray, and lotion or perfume which could damage your pearl.
After you wear you pearl ring you should always clean it with a soft damp cloth using lukewarm water and mild dish soap to remove any body oil or other debris that might be on the surface.
Never store your pearl ring in a sealed plastic bags or airtight spaces such as a safe. These cut off the circulation of air and moisture, creating a dry environment. As this will cause the pearl to dry out and become increasingly more brittle and will lose its beautiful color.
Instead store your pearl ring in a fabric lined jewelry box away from sources of heat. Placing a few damp cotton balls in with your pearl ring will keep your pearl hydrated.
Also, because pearls are a soft stone it is very important to store your pearl ring separately from other jewelry. This will prevent easily scratching or damage of the pearl.
Keep these tips in mind no matter what type of pearl jewelry you have, the same advice applies to necklaces, earrings, and bracelets.
