How To Take Care Of Freshwater Pearl Jewelry?
- Planning to wear your pearl on a special occasion? Be sure to put it on after you are done with all your preparations. Freshwater pearls should avoid having contact with lotion, cream, or other skin care products, perfume, and even hairspray.
- To maintain luster and smoothness, store your pearls in a separate box or container. This will help reduce, if not avoid scratches and damages.
Here at Sienna Likes To Party, we provide a separate pouch for each jewelry to help our luxury accessories maintain its beauty and longevity.
- Before storing your pearls, use a soft cloth to wipe dirt, dust, and/or stain.
- Show some love to your pearls by wearing them as often as you can. This will keep them from drying out as the natural oil from your skin moisturizes them. The air and moisture also hydrate them, keeping them beautiful and moisturized.
