ELISABETH NEWTON PEARLS

pearls of wisdom

The easiest rule of thumb when caring for pearls is that they should be the last thing you put on in the morning, and the first thing you take off in the evening.  The best thing you can do for your pearls is to put them on after you have applied your make-up, perfume and hair spray. Pearls are alkaline, which means that the acids in many beauty products, as well as household cleaners and chlorinated water can damage their nacre, or outer shell.

That being said, don’t let this scare you into not popping on your pearls.  A little known fact is that the oils in your skin increase the natural luster and shine of a pearl over time.  So, the more you wear them, the more illustrious they become!
