Pearls of Wisdom
Pearls have been treasured since antiquity. They have been revered for their irridescence, lustre, and beauty. People have crushed pearls into their makeup, ingested them as medicine, and worn them as protective amulets. But above all, they are beloved as adornments.
To discover which colour pearls compliment your skin tone, hold white, light pink and grey coloured clothing up to your face and see which looks best. Often, two will look equally as lovely, but it’s rare that all three will.
Caring for your Claudia Bradby Jewellery
Beautifully designed pearl jewellery will always turn heads – just ask Coco Chanel – but it needs to be looked after to remain in peak condition.
Claudia Bradby Jewellery uses quality pearls that have been growing for a minimum of two years. All the white and pink pearls are presented in their own natural colour, while the others are dyed to create the perfect tone, lustre and composition.
Top tips for looking after your pearls
- Pearls need to be worn regularly to look their best – stashing your pearls away for a special occasion causes them to dry out, so lift your spirits every day by enhancing your outfit with your pearls.
- It’s recommended you have your pearls and beads re-strung every year to help them look as special as the day they were purchased. We offer this for all customers so do contact us on 01794 389694 to find out more about this service.
- Take care not to moisten your pearls – avoid wearing them in swimming pools or when you’re applying other finishing touches, such as perfume and hairspray.
- Keep your jewellery safe and in perfect condition by storing it in the original Claudia Bradby packaging.
