UMI Pearls Care Guide

Pearls are more fragile than most other gemstones, softer, more delicate, and vulnerable to scratches. Cosmetics and natural body oils and perspiration can dull your pearl’s luster or cloud it’s brilliance. For these reasons, proper care is necessary to ensure that your pearls will last for generations.

    UMI Pearls have listed important tips on how to take care of your pearls.
  1. Your pearls will stay cleaner if you put them on after you’ve applied any cosmetics.
  2. Gently wipe your pearls with a lint-free cloth every after use. A soft cloth can be dampened with water or it can be dry. Dirty pearls can be thoroughly cleaned with a mild soap and water solution taking care not to wet the string whilst cleaning. Ensure to air dry the pearls before putting them away.
  3. Don’t store your pearls with other jewelry because they can be easily scratched when other gemstones or when metals rub against them. It is advisable to store them wrapped in soft and lint-free clothing.
