Pandora’s two pearl species
How to judge a pearl's quality
The value of pearls is affected by six factors: lustre, surface, shape, colour, size and matching.
Love your pearl!
Never soak treated freshwater cultured pearls in water or rub them harshly as this could damage the nacre. Instead clean them by wiping them over with a very soft, clean cloth dampened in lukewarm soapy water. Then pat dry.
Lacquered artificial pearls
Clean a lacquered artificial pearl (a crystal core coated with an innovative lacquer resembling the opalescence of a pearl) with a clean, dry antistatic cloth. If dirt has built up over time, wipe gently with a clean microfibre or lint-free cotton cloth dampened in lukewarm, soapy water and pat dry with a clean, dry cloth.
