“Hey Ms. Elitou! I have what you call a ‘Raver Cool’ party style. I’m a twenty-year old, college student who studies hard so when I have time off I truly enjoy a party! When I go out to a party I have a really fun style. I love to wear neon colored clothing and accessories, crop tops, fun wedges and fitted distressed jeans for the most part. I would really like to switch up my common neon accessories and I was hoping you could suggest a pearl style for me. Thanks! -Sara C.
Hello Ms. Elitou! I was given my Grandmother’s pearls as an anniversary gift and I want to make them look as new as I can. I want to polish them with toothpaste like my other jewelry but I am not sure if they would be safe if I did that. What are your thoughts?
Hi Aliza! Thank you for reaching out! I am very happy that you asked this question because I believe many have the same thought when it comes to cleaning pearls.
The answer is NO! It is very important to not use toothpaste on pearls, turquoise, vintage Bakelite, or vintage rhinestones, because they have softer surfaces and may get scratched.
