PEARLS OF WISDOM!
The pearl is unique, the only gemstone that grows in a living organism.
Pearl is a natural gem with the longest history on earth. Unlike other gemstones composed with minerals and born after a procedure of production, pearls posses an inherent loveliness, without any manpower. Pearls are soft compared with other gems and precious metals.
Therefore, special care is essential...
Cosmetics, perfume and hair spray, which contain chemicals, can dull its luster. Sweating also leads to a similar effect. Always keep your pearls separated from hard jewelry items and are best kept in a soft cloth pouch or a jewelry box.
The string of pearls should be restrung if worn often.
