Are your pearls genuine?
All of our products are genuine, cultured pearls and come from the Asia Pacific Region. We use various types of pearls to build our unique collection of designs, from very round to very baroque. The value of our pearls are based on shape, size, and luster and are hand picked for quality and consistency.

How do I care for my pearls?
After each wearing, wipe your pearls with a soft cloth (slightly damp, if necessary) before putting them away. If more cleaning is necessary, immersion in a bath of water and dissolved baking soda (one teaspoon of baking soda stirred into one cup of water), followed by a thorough rinsing in clear water will brighten them up. The moisture will also, temporarily, tighten the silk on which they are strung. Lay them flat to dry (do not hang them). Store loosely in a soft cloth away from heat because they can dry out. Keep in mind hair spray, perfume and other chemicals can damage your pearls.

When do I need to restring them?
If you wear your pearls often, you should have them inspected at least once a year to see if they need to be restrung. How often they’ll need cleaning and restringing is a matter of how frequently you wear them.
