Sterling silver benefits from usual wear—the oils on your skin help protect it from tarnishing. If your sterling silver is looking a little dull, a silver polishing cloth can quickly restore its shine. Pearls benefit from daily wear — however, care must be taken not to expose them to perspiration or cosmetics. If you need to clean your pearls, simply wipe them with a soft cloth. Friction with hard materials can abrade the surface of a pearl, so make sure to store it separately from other jewelry items. Jewelry is best stored in a dry area away from moisture (i.e. don't keep it in the bathroom!). Place your jewelry in the provided jewelry pouch and box when not being worn.
