Hi everyone, if a freshwater pearl comes out of a clam with a hole that has some dirt in it, is there any solution to clean or brighten it? How does one clean out or polish out rot holes or spots? Thank you.
 
I would use H2O2 (Hydrogen peroxide) for a short while (1 hour) and then use wood/plastic toothpick to try and get rid of the issue.
