Throughout the ages, fine pearl jewelry has been prized for its deep luster and natural beauty. As
precious gemstones, pearls do require care to preserve their appearance. If cared
for properly, cultured pearls can be treasured for a lifetime.

Since pearls are organic gems, they are sensitive to chemicals and harsh environmental conditions. Also,
becuase pearls are solft compared to other jewelry, they should be stored and handled carefully.
If you follow the tips below, you can help your fine pearl jewelry remain
beautiful for many years to come:

- Store your fine pearl jewelry in its oriiginal packaging, not loose in a jewelry box. This packaging is not
only beautiful and elegant, it will also help protect your pearl jewelry from being
scratched by other jewelry in your collection.

- Avoid storing your pearls in extreme heaat or in airtight places (like safes that are not regulated to provide
humidity). Do not store your pearls in plastic bags for very long periods of time. Pearls
benefit from the moisture in the air, and if they are deprived of it for too
long they can become fragile or their color may change.

- Keep your pearl jewelry away from chemiccals. Pearls are sensitive to chemicals such as detergents, bleach,
and some kinds of soap, so it is best not to wear your pearl jewelry when washing dishes, swimming,
or engaging in similar activities. When applying cosmetics, remember the rule "last on, first
off": Put your pearls on last after applying hairspray, perfume, and other
makeup, and take them off before using makeup remover.

- To clean pearls, simply wide them with aa soft cloth, which can be either dry or slightly damp. If using a
damp cloth, lay the pearls flat to dry. Do not use liquid soap or another chemical product to clean
your pearls unless it is specially designed for that purpose, and do not clean your pearls
with a toothbrush or other abrasive materials.
