Renee says: “Gorgeous strand of pink, oval shaped fresh water pearls, traditionally hand knotted with a sterling silver “bolt ring” clasp. This allows you to wear most (not all) pendants in the front, with the pearls as the “chain”. This is a beautiful strand of fresh water pearls which I designed to be worn with most of my pendants. It can also be worn with the clasp at the back for a simple, yet elegant look. These are top grade fresh water pearls, which are hand knotted here in Australia, in the traditional Chinese method for longevity and strength. You will be thrilled to own this strand of traditional pastel pink fresh water pearls, as they are truly gorgeous! Due to the natural way pearls are formed, color and size will vary slightly from pearl to pearl. “Imperfections” are a natural part of these fresh water pearls. Click on images for up close peek at this wonderfully classic strand of pearls.”

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 moisturisers, 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.
