I have a pearl necklace my grandmother gave me that I recently discovered can be worn with business casual clothes without looking silly (I'd always been a little afraid of it before).
It's a string of pearls in graduated sizes, on some sort of string. It's knotted between the pearls, so if it breaks, I wouldn't lose all of them (thank heavens!).
My main question is how should I take care of them, now that I'm going to be wearing them more? I know I should check the string to make sure it isn't fraying anywhere and make sure I don't get perfume or makeup on them. Does anybody have any tips on cleaning them (how often, using what products, how do I dry them, etc)? Is there anything else I should know?
I'm going to Google also, but I'd rather ask the opinions of people I know, instead of stumbling blindly around the wilds of the internet.
