Renee says: “I just love working with pearls these days, after completing a course called: “Pearls As One.” This course not only taught me more than I could ever have imagined about these remarkable gems from the sea, but inspired me to start working with them in my designs. These earrings feature sterling silver with gold vermeil leaf earrings, which are stud/posts and sit snugly on the ear. Dangling delighfully from the bottom, is a wee white fresh water pearl. Utterly charming! Scroll thru’ images for up close peek.”

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.
