However, it is very important to read the how to take care pearl information. AllNaturalStuff.com cannot be responsible for results of damage by the consumer in cleaning the pearls.
Pearls are a chemical and organic gem and require more specialized care. They deteriorate in contact with chemicals like perfumes, cosmetics and hair care products of all kinds. The surface of a pearl is soft and can be easily damaged. A good rule is the pearls are the last thing put on and the first thing to take off. Pearl strands should be stored flat rather than hung to avoid premature stretching of the thread.

With cultured pearls, a particle is inserted into the oyster or mussel by human beings. With natural pearls, a particle gets inside the oyster or mussel by accident.
