Caring for Your Pearls

The Sun, the Sand, the Salt.

We are frequently asked for the best ways in which to care for our pearls. We’ve found that by following just a few simple tips, this magical gemstone has the ability to last a lifetime.

There are pieces in our collection that we wear for days on end without ever taking them off. In fact, pearls gain luster from the natural warmth and oils in our skin. And as sea-loving ladies, our pearls are also frequently brought into the ocean with us.

Most jewelers, would advise taking off your jewelry before a day at the beach. This is the easiest way to keep your pearls lustrous and your gold shining bright. However, as everyday jewelry wearers and frequent beach-goers, we know that’s not always practical. So, if you’re like us, don’t fret over a day in the sea with your pearls on. While a little time in the ocean isn’t the worst, we suggest rinsing your pieces off afterward in soft water, drying, and storing safely in one of our organic cotton bags. It’s best to also practice applying sunscreens, lotions, and perfumes before putting on your jewelry to avoid making them dull and discolored. A good rule of thumb: let your pearls be the last thing you put on in the morning and the first thing you take off at night.

Now, through the launch of our solid gold line, our pearls have turned into true heirlooms, made to last through every ocean adventure without the worry of tarnishing or fading. When treated carefully, pearl jewelry can be passed down through the years, as elegant and lustrous as the day they were purchased.
