How to Care for Your Pearls
Even fresh water pearls which are usually comprised entirely of nacre are more fragile than most other gemstones, so you must handle them carefully to keep them in the best condition.
Storing Pearls
Don't store your pearls with other jewelry, because they can be scratched easily when metal or gemstones rub against them. I will provide you with a silk pouch for you to keep them in when they're not being worn. Pearls require moisture - do not store pearls in a plastic bag or other airtight package.

Your fine pearl necklaces should be restrung periodically so that you're sure the silk cord holding them is in good shape. In the event of a breakage the knotting will limit how many beads can leave the strand.
