Accessorising with pearls is a classy way of dressing up the simplest outfit but they are also very sensitive and need a bit of extra care to maintain their luster. One of the easiest ways to maintain this cluster is to simply wear them. Allow your natural body oils to caress them and prevent them from drying out. However this does to imply that you slather them with your favourite lotion either. And as we are on the topic keep them away from your perfumes as well.Customer satisfaction is pivotal and we want you to love your pieces. If you are unhappy upon receipt you have a grace period to return your item and qualify for a refund.
