A pearl is a very fragile and precious gem. It can easily be damaged through wear and tear, or without careful handling. At Ashby Crane and Co Jewellers Exeter we have some advice on caring for your pearls.
You should always store your pearls flat, wrapped in a soft cloth. Also, keep separate from your other jewellery.
The more pearls are worn the better it is for them.
Your pearls are supposed to be strung fully knotted; i.e. a knot should be tied between each pearl.
Pearls should be restrung once a year. Ashby Crane and Co Jewellers can help you to preserve your pearls as we providing a high quality restringing service at our jewellery worshop. Please get in touch if you would like to know about how we can rejuvinate and preserve pearls and other delicate materials.
