Freshwater Pearls

Pearls form when a tiny particle of matter like a grain of sand finds its way into the shell of a mollusc and becomes coated over time with nacre, or mother of pearl which covers the inside of the shell, forming a pearl. Pearls range in colours, and many are dyed. Once viewed by Arabians as tears of the Gods, the pearl is thought to signify faith, charity and innocence and to enhance the integrity of the wearer, and is one of the birthstones for June, symbolising health and longevity. Unless otherwise stated, strands are all temporarily strung which means they are ready for you to add your creativity to them.

Care Tips: Always put your pearls on last - after applying your perfumes or potions and lotions, take them off first when you undress.

Pearls should be cleaned only with mild soap and water and dried with a soft cloth; never use harsh chemicals or ultrasonic cleaners on your pearls which are a natural product - remember, pearls need the oils naturally found on your skin to thrive and never store them in plastic bags long term or they will lose their sheen.

If you string pearls on silk (as is traditional) and you wear them regularly you can reckon on needing to restring them every 2-3 years depending on wear and tear. Remember always to stretch your silk thread before stringing and knotting pearls this way.

Stringing pearls on modern stringing materials like 'Beadalon' makes pearl jewellery easier to care for and less likely to need restringing as frequently.
