Before putting on your jewellery, apply all types of makeup, skincare, and chemicals such as perfume, creme, oil, hairspray etc. This way, you won’t expose your precious items to unnecessary grease or dirt and lower the luster (shine) of your pearls.

Pearls are mainly made from calcium and won’t react well to frequent exposure to soap and makeup. They will, on the other hand, react well to being worn directly on our skin, due to our natural sebum (skin grease).

Gold jewellery is a bit more resistant and can be exposed to common things such as hand washing, going swimming, using lotion etc. The same goes for the gems I frequently use in my designs. But to ensure you won't get soap or lotion residue on your gems, you can take them off before applying your products.That way, they won’t be greased up and have their shine dimmed, even though that can be easily removed with an old toothbrush and some soapy water.


Take a piece of cotton cloth, soak it in lukewarm water, and wring it out nicely. Take your pearl(s) and rub any dirt away with your cloth, don’t use any soap. Dry the pearls with a clean, dry cloth, and they will shine anew.


Put your jewellery in a bowl of hot water with 3-4 drops of dish soap. Stir the soapy water until foamy and leave the jewellery in for 15-20 minutes. Now the dirt should have loosened from the gold and/or gem and you can start brushing it with a toothbrush. Start inside and work your way out on the jewellery, also where the gem or gems are attached. Rinse with lukewarm water and dry carefully with a towel.
Now, your jewellery should be clean and ready to shine.
