Here some tips help you to keep the luster of your black pearl jewelry standing the years to come.

1. As we know only Tahitian pearls are natural black pearls. Others are dye. Keeping the pearls’ color is very important. First of all you should try to keep your black pearls away the merciless sun.

2. Comparing to diamonds, ruby, gold and teeth that kind of hardware, a black pearl is still a relatively soft material. Knowing how soft a pearl is can help us understand why black pearl should not be put on top of or next to other gems in a jewelry box.

3. Besides being soft, black pearls are easily damaged by chemicals or eaten away by acids such as vinegar and lemon juice. At the same time, heavy secretion of human body has an effect on pearl luster. Peal jewelry should be taken off before you are doing exercise, bathing and swimming.

4. Heat can turn pearls brown or dry them out and make them crack. Cultured pearls, especially those with thin nacre, are not very durable. Therefore, avoid dropping or crushing them.

5. When taking off a pearl ring, grasp the shank or metal part rather than the pearl. This will prevent the pearl from loosening and coming into contact with skin oil on your hand.
