Freshwater Pearls are prized for their individuality. Each pearl is unlike any other, unique in its own shape. At Penny Pairs, we make efforts to ensure our pearls are ethically farmed.

Step 2: Dip the cloth in the mixture and gently use it to clean the pearls.
Step 3: Wet the cloth with water and rinse the cleaning solution off the pearls.
Step 4: Use some fresh cloth to dry the pearls off, still wiping as soft as possible across the entire surface.
925 Silver is made up of 92.5% silver and 7.5% copper. This world standard of Sterling Silver is more resistant to wear and tear than other values.
Step 1: Regularly clean your piece by polishing it with a jewelry cloth. To avoid making scratches worse, rub the jewelry in linear motions instead of circular motions.
Step 2: Use a moist cloth to get a deeper clean. Avoid using soap or cleaning polish, these are known to degrade the silver layer.
Step 3: Always dry your silver. Make sure no moisture is left on the jewelry.
Vermeil jewelry is strictly composed of a silver core metal plus a measured gold layer. In our own 18K Gold Vermeil, we layer a thick coating of gold all over a 925 Silver core.
Step 1: Fill a bowl of room temperature water and add some mild soap if needed. Make use of a lint-free cloth instead of dipping or soaking the jewelry.
Step 2: Lightly wipe the gold with wet cloth, careful not to irritate the sensitive layer.
Step 3: If using soap, rinse the gold with a cloth wet only with water before drying it off.
Step 4: Wipe off the water with a dry cloth. Double check to make sure that the gold is completely dry.
