Before you are going to wear your precious freshwater pearl necklace or other pearl jewelry, some maintaining tips for your pearls you should know at first.
When speaking of fashion, we generally have the impression that after a period of popularity, jewelry is the same, there is always a period of time to attract consumers to buy, and then it return to plain, but there is only one jewelry, its existence has long dominated women's most desirable jewelry first, it is Pearls.
Pearl is the only viable gem in the world. It is a gem bestowed by nature. As the owner of such precious jewelry, how do you maintain the pearl jewelry, bellow are some small tips that can help you to maintain your pearl necklace or pearl earrings.
Preventing acid erosion
The composition of pearl is calcium carbonate containing organic calcium, which has poor chemical stability. It is soluble in acids and alkaloids. It is not suitable for daily life to contact perfume, oil, salt, alcohol, hair cream, vinegar and dirt.
Keep away from the kitchen
Pearl has tiny air holes on its surface, so it is not suitable to let it inhale dirty substances in the air. Pearls absorb substances such as sprays, perfume and so on. So don't wear beautiful pearls to cook vegetables. Steam and oil fume may penetrate the Pearl and make it yellow.
No water, no sweat
Do not clean the Pearl Necklace with water. Water can enter the holes of the beads, which is not only difficult to dry, but also may ferment the beads, and the beads may turn green. If you sweat a lot when you wear it, you can use a soft wet towel to clean it carefully, and then dry it naturally and put it back into the jewelry box. When the Pearl turns yellow, it can be remedied by soaking it in dilute hydrochloric acid, which can dissolve the yellowing shell and make the Pearl return to its brilliant and charming color. But if the color turns yellow, it's hard to reverse.
Need fresh air
Do not keep the pearls in the safe for a long time or seal them with plastic bags. Real pearls need fresh air and they need to be taken out and worn every few months to breathe. If the pearl is put in the box for a long time, it will turn yellow easily.
Pearl jewelry should be stored separately to avoid other jewelry scratching the Pearl skin. If you're going to wear bead chains on your clothes, the texture of the clothes should be slippery. Too rough material may scratch your precious pearls.
Avoid exposure to the sun
Because pearls contain a certain amount of water, pearls should be kept in a cool place, try to avoid direct sunlight, or placed in too dry place, in order to avoid dehydration of pearls.
