WHY IS THERE A SHOT GLASS OF WATER IN A PEARL JEWELRY SHOWCASE?

Our customers and friends often ask us, why there is a small glass of water displayed in every showcase next to the pearl strands, necklaces, earrings, bracelets and other pearl jewelry. The reason is that the pearls are gemstones of organic origin and they need to be stored at a certain level of humidity. It is important especially in rooms with air-conditioning that is known for making the air dry. For the same reason, it is not recommended to keep your pearls in a safe box for a long time, because like all living creatures they like fresh air and hydration. If you have a pearl, don’t store it – wear it!
