Caring for Your Australian Pearl Jewellery

While Australian pearl jewellery is renowned for its durability and lustre, proper care is essential to maintain its beauty for years to come. Here are some tips for caring for your Pearl jewellery for proper maintenance:

Handle with Care:Avoid exposing your pearls to harsh chemicals, perfumes, or cosmetics, as these can damage their delicate surface. Instead, gently wipe them with a soft, damp cloth after each wear to remove dirt or oils.

Store Properly:When not in use, store and protect your pearl jewellery in a soft pouch or cloth bag to prevent scratching and damage. To prevent tangling and scratching, it's best to avoid storing them with other jewellery.

Gentle Cleaning: When cleaning your pearl jewellery, use a mild soap solution and a soft, lint-free cloth to gently wipe away any dirt or grime. Avoid using harsh detergents or abrasive cleaners, as these can damage the delicate surface of the pearls.

Avoid Excessive Sun Exposure:When not wearing your pearl jewellery, store them in a cool, dark place away from sunlight to preserve their natural beauty. 

Rotate Usage:If you have multiple pieces of pearl jewellery, consider rotating their usage to prevent overexposure to oils, acids, and other substances from your skin. This practice helps maintain the integrity and lustre of your pearls for longer periods between cleanings and restrings.

Regular Maintenance:Periodically inspect your pearl jewellery for any signs of damage or loose settings. If necessary, have it professionally cleaned and restrung to ensure it remains in pristine condition.
