Swarovski Elements: Pearls

Swarovski’s crystal pearls are coated with real nacre—the same substance found in natural pearls—so they have the weight, luster, and feel of real pearls but for a fraction of the price. Because of this natural coating, Swarovski pearls change to reflect the temperature of the wearer’s skin, just as real pearls do.

Unlike other, lesser quality imitation pearls, the finishing on Swarovski pearls is not susceptible to damage caused by perfumes, lotion, or perspiration, and the pearls themselves are resistant to scratches.

Cleaning and Care

To give your pearls the longest life possible, be sure to wipe them clean with a slightly damp, lint-free cloth after wearing. This will help to prevent residual build-up. If necessary, you can clean them occasionally with water and mild dish soap and rinse immediately with fresh water. Do not soak the pieces. Cleaning these delicate jewelry pieces in an ultrasonic cleaner will be too rough on them, so this form of cleaning is discouraged.
