The life of a pearl

Pearls are made primarily of calcium carbonate, i.e. an organic material, but unlike diamonds, their strucutre deteriorate more easily as a natural process. The duration of the life of a pearl, once removed from the shelled mollusk, has been estimated of 150 years. Still, there are some preventive measures that can be taken: keep the pearl away from cosmetics, perfumes, detergents and similar products that could erode the pearl�s surface. To stop its progressive dehydration, put the pearl jewel in lukewarm water from time to time, and wash them gently with neutral soap. After few minutes, rinse out the jewel and mop it up with velvet towel or chamois. Some lanolin or vegetable oil drops would help in preserving the pearls� brightness. Be careful never to rub the pearls, to avoid the risk of scratching them.
