Pearls are kept most lustrous when worn next to the skin as they feed off your natural oils.
However, pearls can be affected by cosmetics, fake tan, perfume and hairsprays, therefore it is best to wash your hands before putting your pearls on.

Perspiration has acids which attack the luster in pearls, as does chlorinated water in a swimming pool.

3. Keep your pearls away from your diamonds!
Diamonds and other semi-precious stones will scratch the surface of your pearls if you keep them all together. We suggest that you keep the pearls in silk or chamois leather as these materials help conserve the pearls luster. Our Jewellery Travel Bags are an ideal home for your pearls.

4. You will need to re-stringColeman Douglas Pearls your pearls every year if you wear them regularly, or as soon as the thread discolours, stretches or frays.
