Pearls were once seen as conservative, but the traditional views of pearls as old-fashioned jewelry are changing and numerous brands are reinventing pearls for the modern women. While pearls have always been in fashion, they are no longer dismissed to your grandmother’s closet.  Pearls are making a comeback in a big way, alongside with diamonds they are a staple among many fashionistas worldwide.

Pearls are a classic addition to any jewelry collection as they embody sophisticated elegance. They are also immensely flattering to one’s complexion.  Simply put, pearls never go out of style, so it’s not surprising to see celebrities and the younger generation taking a shine to them.

Melanie Georgacopoulos is one designer who has given pearl jewellry a modern twist by splicing and cutting pearls and using them in new ways. She has turned pearls into statement pieces with the intent on reviving the material with modern meanings that challenge ideas of classic pearl jewelry.  She explains, “I decided to make pearls my trademark when I noticed that there was very little contemporary pearl jewelry and that most people thought them outdated and conventional. I look at pearls from a fresh perspective when creating my collections, concentrating on innovative design that is easy to wear. Of course, it has helped a lot that pearls are appearing more and more on the catwalk as well as on prominent celebrities. These days women are not restricted to the traditional single-strand pearl necklace anymore; they now have a wide variety of interesting choices.”

Pearls can make beautiful jewelry, they are an organic gemstone which are very soft and require special care.  If you maintain your pearl jewelry properly their luster will last for generations.   A good rule of thumb is that pearls should be THE LAST THING YOU PUT ON when dressing and THE FIRST THING YOU TAKE OFF when you get home. Doing this will help your pearls avoid any unnecessary damage  because they should be kept free of perfumes, cosmetics, perspirations and dirt.  The easiest way to care for pearls is to gently wipe them with a soft cloth after they have been removed for the day because a pearl’s luster can be damaged by even the smallest amount of perspiration.  Wiping them off after each use will help preserve them.



CLEANING YOUR PEARLS


When a soft cloth is no longer enough to remove any dirt from your pearls, you need to use a mild cleaning solution.  NEVER use solutions that contain ammonia or other harsh detergents as you will damage the surface of the pearl.  To clean your pearls, gently apply a baby shampoo or another mild soap solution with a soft manicure brush.  Be careful to support the strand if the pearls are on a necklace or bracelet so the thread will not stretch.  Only use mineral water or distilled water to rinse your pearls.  Standard tap water contains chlorine and other chemicals that can damage the surface of your pearls. Then gently dab the water off with a dry, soft cloth.  Once dry, polish your pearls to help them maintain their beauty.




STORING AND MAINTAINING YOUR PEARLS

Pearls can get scratched by contact with sharp objects or other gemstones.  Because of this, you should not store your pearls with other jewelry, it is best to find a special slot in your jewelry box for your pearls, or keep them in a soft bag made chamois or another non-abrasive material.

You should NEVER store pearls in a plastic bag. Some types of plastic emit a chemical that will cause the surface of your pearls to deteriorate. As well, Do not store pearls in a safe or safety deposit box for long periods. The ultra-dry conditions that extend the life of paper documents may dry out your pearls and cause them to develop small fractures on the surface.

Lastly, to keep your pearl jewelry around for generations, any jewelry on strands should be restrung every one to two years or more often if the thread begins to bag or fray. This will keep your pearl jewelry in pristine condition and good for generations to come.
