How do I care for my cultured pearls?
Fine cultured pearls with lustrous nacre will last for generations if cared for properly. Cultured pearls should be kept free of perfumes, cosmetics, perspiration and dirt. It is best to follow the old adage "pearls should be the last thing you put on and the first thing you take off." You may gently wipe cultured pearls with a slightly damp cloth. Tiffany & Co. cultured pearls are strung on pure silk with knots between each cultured pearl. Over time, the silk will stretch, weaken and become soiled. If you wear your cultured pearls regularly, we encourage you to have your cultured pearls cleaned and restrung annually.
