How to Care for Your Imperial Pearls

According to Josh Bazar, the best way to care for your pearls is to avoid perfume or high acid liquids. Pearls are natural and therefore, acidic liquids can erode their luster. Then, be sure to store your pearls in a box or cloth where it can’t rub up against metal or other sharp surfaces. Therefore, you can scratch and wear your pearls down without proper care.
