LAGOS pearls are crafted using the highest quality freshwater cultured pearls available. Pearls are ideal for daily wear, but not indestructible. Pearls may lose their natural luster or become scratched if not handled properly. Special attention is required in the care, cleaning and storage of pearl jewelry.
Freshwater cultured pearls may build-up residue from daily wear. Maintain your jewelry using the LAGOS Cleaners. Place your jewelry in the solution and brush lightly. Rinse under cool water and repeat as needed. Gently buff with soft cloth to dry. Be sure your piece is thoroughly dry before storing.
Your pearl jewelry may loosen over time. You should have your pearl piece restrung periodically.
Here are additional suggestions for keeping your pearls looking their best:
- Put on pearls after you have completed your hair, perfume and make-up.
- Do not use a silver cleaner on pearl jewelry, even pearl pieces that feature sterling silver.
- Do not wear pearl jewelry in the ocean, hot tub, sauna, pool, bath or shower. Water will damage the natural luster of pearls.
- Do not place pearls in an ultrasonic cleaner. Do not steam-clean pearls. Do not use any abrasive cleaners or rub pearls with an abrasive cloth.
For a minimal fee, you can send your LAGOS pearl jewelry for a professional cleaning.
