When it comes to Freshwater Pearls, did you know it’s actually better to wear your Pearls rather than put them into storage?
This is because unlike gemstones, Freshwater Pearls are made of a living organism called a mollusk.
When stored for long periods in a Security deposit box for example, Pearls can become dehydrated.
This may cause them to crack, discolour & or peel.
So it seems former US 1st lady & style icon Jackie Kennedy was quite right when she said
Pearls are always appropriate!
