Renee says: “Beautiful deep chocolate fresh water pearl necklace guaranteed to delight! Each pearl is hand knotted in the age old traditional Chinese style, right here in Australia. I travel to Thailand every few years to hand select my pearls, and then have them hand knotted by a lovely couple in Sydney. These pearls are a slightly oval shape and have superb lustre and shine, as all pearls should. They throw slight shades of deepest purple and blue. (NOTE: These are not purple/blue pearls, rather they have slight shade ranges which can be seen in the photos.) Due to their natural nature, each pearl will have its own unique shape and characteristics. The larger sterling silver bolt clasp can be worn in the front or the back. You can see by a few of the photos, the pearls can be worn with pendants. Scroll thru’ images for up close peek at a most beautiful strand. Pearls…Gems of the Sea!”

Care of Fresh Water Pearls
Pearls are remarkably durable and can maintain their exquisite lustre for many generations, however it is important to remember that pearls are an organic gem that require and will respond to special care.
Ideally, any makeup and hair products should be applied before you put your pearls on. Pearls are porous, therefore contact with moisturizers, sunscreens and deodorants should be avoided as it can, overtime, dull their lustre and cause marks and spots. Also avoid spraying any perfume where you intend to wear your pearls.
Be sure to store your pearls away from other jewellery items to avoid being scratched or marked. It is also recommended not to store your pearls in coloured boxes for long periods as they can absorb the colour.
The best way to care for your pearls is to wear them often as the body’s natural oils tend to keep them lustrous, however always avoid playing sports as perspiration can dull lustre on the pearl. Also avoid swimming, showering, or any contact with chlorinated water while wearing your pearls.
If worn often, wipe your pearls with a soft damp cloth, there is no need for commercial, ultrasonic or steam cleaning solutions, your pearls will react naturally to a chemical-free clean.
