PEARLS ARE RESILIENT AND ARE MEANT TO BE WORN. ALL PEARLS ARE ALSO DELICATE AND REQUIRE PROPER CARE FOR A LASTING LUSTER AND GLOW.

PEARLS ARE ORGANIC GEMSTONES. THEY ARE VULNERABLE TO ACIDS, PERSPIRATION, ALKALINE AND EXTREME TEMPERATURES OF HUMIDITY. TRY TO AVOID HARMING THE PEARLS LUSTER WHEN COMING IN CONTACT WITH THE ABOVE.

PEARLS ARE COHESIVE AND SHOCK RESISTANT HOWEVER THEY MAY BE SCRATCHED IF CONTACTED WITH OTHER SHARP OBJECTS AND GEMSTONES. 

TO KEEP YOUR PEARLS LASTING LUSTER, RINSE PEARL JEWELRY WITH WATER AND WIPE DOWN WITH A NON ABRASIVE CLOTH. STORE YOUR PEARLS IN A PROTECTIVE JEWELRY POUCH WHEN WORN.
