I wasn’t sure where to put this, but I would love your observations. I’ve noticed, especially with my akoyas (including some vintage ones), that they look more beautiful and lustrous when I wear them often. (Of course I don’t clean house in them or expose them to detergent, chemicals, or solvents.) After each wearing I’m careful to wipe them down super gently with a lint-free soft cloth (maybe dampened with distilled water), before putting them away. I know pearls can dry out, so I’m guessing that the warmth and humidity they’re exposed to when being worn can be beneficial to them. I would love to hear your experiences, and if there’s some science-y stuff behind the phenomenon, I’d be interested in that, too. Thanks for reading. Be well, everyone!
