The pearl has long been an emblem of modesty, chastity and purity. It also symbolized love, success and happiness, which is why pearls are so often part of a bride’s wedding day finery. Centuries ago, it was thought that a single drop of rain falling from the heavens alit upon an open oyster, thereby producing a a pearl. The gem’s classic beauty is universally flattering and perfect for all ages.

Because pearls are an organic gemstone, special care must be taken to maintain their beauty. The best care for pearls is simply to wear them. The natural oils in your skin will keep them lustrous. Avoid exposing pearls to such chemicals as hairsprays, make-up, perfume and other household products. After wearing your pearls, make sure you wipe them down with a soft, damp cloth. Should they become soiled with perfume or make-up, you may use very mild soapy water. Do not submerge your pearl strand in water as this may weaken the silken threads. Never place pearls in jewelry cleaners or ultrasonic machines. When in doubt, professional cleaning is recommended.
