If you do not pay proper attention to jewelry you may not know that there is a difference between pearls. Today we want to focus on the mother of peal and fresh water pearl jewelry.
This gemstone has a shine and luster that is difficult to forget.
The best way to take care of your mother of pearl jewelry is to wear it. The simple act of putting on a mother of pearl necklace or earrings protects the piece because the natural oils in human skin transfer to the gemstone and enhance it. In fact, these oils help maintain the luster of mother of pearl and protect them from drying out and cracking, a common risk for mother of pearl jewelry over time.
When you are not rocking your Jewelry ensure that you store it in a clean cotton or silk jewelry pouch. It is also important to note that climate affects the maintenance of mother of pearl. Direct sunlight and the atmosphere of drier climates accelerate the cracking process common with mother of pearl. Therefore, those who live in arid areas should store their mother of pearl jewelry in more humid areas such as the bathroom or near a bedroom humidifier.
Lastly use soft cleaning brushes and solutions that are not harsh, you don’t want to discolor or scratch your ornament.
It’s pretty easy to get the best beads and rock them when you go out. Maintaining them however will involve some work, except you are ready throw them away soon.
Today we’d give you valuable tips on how to take care of your beaded jewelry. This way your beaded jewelry is scratch free and brilliant looking.

We love all things jewellery at Leries Accessories and we love the style secrets Pamela shared about the modern way to buy and keep jewellery.
1. Buy Your Obsession First
“My first major jewellery purchase was an antique opal ring because opals have always been very meaningful to me. In terms of style, I try to tell people making their first big jewellery purchase to go for something that they’ll wear every single day.
2. Manifest Your Signature Stone
“If you need a certain type of energy or direction in your life, look at the stones that correspond with your intentions. You’ll probably find they’re also the ones you like the most. For example, I’m obsessed with opal. It’s always my favourite stone to wear because I think they’re the most magical stones to put into your life. I absolutely believe that certain stones attract different energies. And opals, I’ve never lost one—I’d probably die if I did… I always say, never take off your favourite [stones] and that way you’ll never lose them.”
