Pearls are an organic gemstone and require special care to ensure their longevity.
Simple cleaning and storage will ensure that your pearls keep their lustrous beauty for years to come.
You should avoid having your pearls come in to contact with perfume, hairspray, cosmetics and household cleaning agents as they contain alcohol, acids and harsh chemicals that are harmful to the pearl’s lustre and surface.
Perspiration and dirt may also harm pearls, Autore recommends you gently wipe pearls with a slight damp (not wet) cloth after you wear them.
Pearls are strung on pure silk with a knot between each pearl (knotting between pearls ensures that if the strand breaks you only risk losing a single pearl). Silk string weakens and stretches over time and we recommend you have your pearls restrung professionally once a year.
It is advised that you avoid dipping your pearls in water or wear them whilst bathing or swimming as the water weakens the silk thread.
Our packaging has been designed especially for pearls and it is recommended you store your pearls in their original box or pouch.Read More
Store your pearls separately; keeping them away from other jewellery and gemstones that may scratch the pearl’s surface. It is advisable to avoid storing your pearls in a plastic bag as some types of plastic emit a chemical that deteriorates the pearl’s surface.
Store pearl strands flat to avoid stretching the silk thread.
We recommend you do not store pearls in a safe for a long period of time as the dry atmospheric conditions dry out the pearls and cause them to crack.
Prolonged exposure to direct heat or sunshine may discolour and even dry pearls.
You can use a very mild soap to remove make-up or dirt from pearls however avoid using brushes or other abrasive materials which may scratch the pearl’s surface. Ultrasonic cleaning is not safe for pearls and we advise against this method.
Cleaning by a professional jeweller guarantees that your pearls are not at risk of being damaged by chemicals or harsh soaps.
Our Couture and Boutique jewellery pieces are accompanied by an Authenticity Certificate which includes a photograph and detailed grading information of the specific piece purchased.
