SPHERE JEWELLERY

Product Care

 

Regular Care

Pearl jewellery requires proper care.

Though exceptionally shock resistant and unlikely to crack, pearls are easily scratched. When wearing your pearl jewellery, please mind that the pearls do not come in contact with sharp objects or other gemstones.

Pearls are organic gemstones born of pearl oysters. Heat or ultraviolet rays may cause changes in color or deterioration in quality, do not leave pearls where they will be exposed to direct sunlight or high heat or humidity.

 Pearls are vulnerable to acids and other chemicals. To protect your pearls from the acids in perspiration, we suggest that you wipe them gently with a soft silicone cloth after every wearing. Also take care to avoid contact with vinegar, fruit juices or other acidic substances. Hair spray, perfumes or other cosmetics may dull the radiance of your pearls. Always put on your jewellery after applying makeup and hair products.

Pearl Storage

Storage is an important element of pearl care.

When storing pearl jewelry, use a compartmentalized jewellery box or put into jewellery dust bag to keep pearls separate from other items.

Pearls absorb moisture from the air, when storing pearl jewellery, stored in cool and dry area, keeping air flowing.

 

Quality of Pearls

The quality of a pearl is determined by a combination of several elements.

Luster

A rich luster is one of the important elements that determine the quality of a pearl. The smoothness of the surface, the evenness of the nacre layer, and the content of impurities are also distinguishing factors.

Surface

Surface is the thickness of the nacre. The thicker the nacre, the higher the quality of the pearl.

Shape

Generally, the closer to a true sphere, the higher the quality of the pearl. However, non-spherical pearls have an inherent appeal that many people prize in a piece of jewelry.

Flaws

Flaws naturally arise in the course of a pearl’s formation, but the fewer the number of flaws, the better the quality.
