Put them on after hairsprays, perfumes and makeup have been applied.
Bathing and showering with pearls is not recommended as both may weaken the silk thread and weaken glue if used.
Keep them in a soft cloth pouch to preserve their fragile surface.
Strands should be strung with individual knots between each pearl. This helps to prevent pearls rubbing against one another. Additionally, should the silk break, only one or two pearls will fall loose.
