Lightly clean it using mild dish soap, water and a soft toothbrush. Be sure to dry it thoroughly when done with a soft cloth. You may also like to let it air dry for a time before putting it away. Polish with a jewelry polishing cloth to give it a even better buffing.
*** GOLD VERMEIL CARE INSTRUCTIONS ***
Gold Vermeil is overlay of 14K gold over a sterling silver base. Gold vermeil jewelry can last for years with proper care. Jewelry should be removed before spraying perfume, washing hands, using lotions, bathing, or going into a pool or hot tub. Chlorine can permanently damage or discolor your gold vermeil jewelry. Store your jewelry in an airtight container, in a dry location. To clean, buff very gently with a soft cotton cloth. NEVER use chemical cleaners or abrasives to clean gold vermeil as it can strip the gold finish.
FRESH WATER PEARL CARE
Freshwater pearls are soft and can be easily scratched. They can also be damaged by extreme dryness, but never immerse them completely in water. An occasional cleaning with a moist, soft cloth is best.
Be sure to avoid chemicals like alcohol, ammonia, bleach, chlorine, acetone, hairspray, perfume and cosmetics.
Do not use a silver polishing cloth on pearls.
