Tips: Caring for your pearls

Following these simple guidelines should preserve your Masaaki pearls for generations.

  • Always apply cosmetics and perfumes before wearing your pearls, never after.
  • After wearing pearls, clean pearls with a soft, damp cloth.
  • Have your pearls re-strung approximately once a year, depending on frequency of wear.
  • Pearls should be stored in a dry place.
  • Do not store pearls with other jewellery or sharp objects that might scratch the surface.
  • Never expose pearls to dish or wash detergents, bleaches, powdered cleansers, baking soda, or ammonia-based cleaners.
  • Do not wear pearls when the string is wet. Wet strings stretch and attract dirt, which is hard to remove.
  • Do not hang pearls to dry.
  • Take your pearls off when swimming - pearls could change colour if worn during swimming or bathing.
  • Store pearls in a chamois bag or wrapped in tissue.
