Another great reason for having a cultured pearl jewelry company in the south is the humidity. Pearls absolutely love moisture. As you can see in this pearl display , there is a glass of water. Pearls can get dry and hot in jewelry display cases. And pearls robbed of moisture can become brittle.
Do you know where else they can get dry and brittle? In your lock box. There is absolutely no reason to keep your pearls in a lock box because they need moisture to prolong their life and beauty. So, to keep your pearls stunning for years to come… wear them , enjoy them, clean them and if you decide to put them away always keep them in a moisture rich area.
