Pearls are delicate; handle them with care.

  • Store your pearls in cloth bags away from other jewelry.

  • When applying makeup, hairspray and perfume, do not wear your pearls & put them on after the application.

  • DO NOT clean pearls with chemical cleaners.

  • Remove pearls before washing dishes or doing housework.

  • To keep your pearls beautiful, wipe with a soft cloth after wearing, wash occasionally in mild soapy water and have your pearls restrung at least once every 2 years if worn frequently (a service Designs by Georgina offers).

  • Silk thread is preferable, with knots tied between each pearl to prevent abrasion and ensure that all are not lost if string is broken.
