  Getting Ready for a Special Occasion
  Jewelry should be the final touch in completing your attire. Sounds obvious, doesn't it? We're amazed at how often this is overlooked by people getting ready for a special event. Often times, people are so used to wearing their jewelry that they forget it's there.
   
  Remove jewelry before putting on powder, makeup and hair spray. Besides getting in the way, the chemicals in these products can deteriorate your jewelry and diminish their appearance. After dressing, they should be the last items you put on
   
  Opal Triplet Care
 

The opal slice is captured in an air-tight sandwich, using a very fine jewelers epoxy. They should not be subjected to strong solvents and extended periods in water. Since the 'cap' is made of a hard stone-like material, it can easily be re-polished by a jeweler if it becomes scratched.

   
  Pearl Care
  The pearl is a soft gem.  The less expensive it is, the more fragile it is, because inexpensive pearls have a thin layer of nacre from being harvested prematurely.  The minimum thickness of nacre for a pearl you intend to keep for more than a few years of frequent wear should be .35 millimeters; .5 is better. 
   
  Proper care means protecting them from contact with rough fabric or any type of acid. Never clean them in ordinary jewelry cleaner,  ammonia or vinegar.  In the jewelry box, keep them away from contact with other pieces of jewelry. Ideally they should be put in a soft cloth bag; but never use a plastic bag - this will seal out air and hasten deterioration.
   
  After each wearing, wipe your pearls with a soft cloth to remove body oil, makeup, and pollution.  Wear your pearls at least once a month, the humidity from your body does them good.  If you wear your pearls on a regular basis, have them professionally cleaned every year to prevent dust, powder, and skin oils from accumulating in the bead holes.  Have the beads re-strung (and the clasp checked)  the moment you notice the string stretching or looking deteriorated.  Always apply your perfume and hair spray before you take your pearls out of the bag. 
   
  As mentioned, wearing your pearls on a regular basis seems to improve their luster.
