#1 Wipe using soft cloth after every use
After returning from a party, take a soft cloth (maybe cotton cloth) and wipe your pearls gently.
This process does nothing but removes any buildup of oils or other stuff from your pearls.
Things to Note:
- Do not wipe harshly or with a rough cloth.
- You can also use a damp cloth to wipe your pearls.
- Use water only if you feel its requirement. It would be good if you use little warm water.
- If you see water droplets on your pearls, let it dry completely before keeping back into its box.
#2 Take it to Jeweler Once in a Year
Like a human body needs regular checkups, our jewelry also needs a regular visit to a jeweler, who ensures that everything is perfectly fine with our jewel.
Surely, a jeweler has a better knowledge about jewelry and hence can check the integrity of your pearls necklace or bracelets.
A jeweler can not only check your pearls but also clean it safely and thoroughly.
So, at least once in a year, you are advised to go to jewelers.
#3 Always wear pearls at the last
Not only pearls, but any jewelry should be worn after finishing with everything else.
Applying makeups, lipsticks, perfumes or anything else after wearing jewelry is not a healthy practice as the dust particle can sit on it and fade its charm.
#4 Always store flat
While most of the necklaces can be left hung, but practicing same for pearls isn’t advised.
Always store your pearl necklaces or bracelets on a flat surface, which prevent them from stretching.
#5 Give enough space to your pearls
Pearls are prone to scratches and hence it requires little more space than other jewels.
So, always give a little more space and also try to keep them separate, without mixing with other jewelry.
Experts advise keeping pearls in a fabric-lined compartment.

Many people think that not wearing jewelry gives more lifespan to them but that’s not actually true.
Pearls do best in a moist environment, so wear frequently as it maintains the moisture.
So, these were the few tips to keep your pearl alive and shiny for years.
