Pearl and Bead Restringing

Typical recommendations for re-stringing pearls depends on how often you wear your pearls and how well you care for them after use. Dirt and grease eventually get in between the pearls and attacks the material upon which they are threaded. Your pearls will stay cleaner if you put them on after you've applied your makeup and perfume. Wipe your pearls with a soft, lint-free cloth as soon as you take them off.
