Q. How should I handle works using pearls?
A. Compared to other gems, pearls are soft and delicate. However, they are inherently strong and long-lasting.
If you know how to properly handle and care for them, you can maintain their luster semi-permanently.
First, let's learn what pearls are not good at.
The main component of pearls is calcium carbonate, which hates acids, alkalis, and heat.
The Mohs hardness of pearls is 4 degrees, which is much softer than rubies, sapphires (9 degrees), and crystals (7 degrees).
Be careful not to rub pearls against metals, hard stones, diamonds, or other hard gems, as they are quite soft.
Please be careful not to rub it against metal, hard stones, diamonds or hard gems.
Human nails have a Mohs hardness of 2.0, so even if you press it hard with your nails, it will not be scratched.

The lower the number, the softer the diamond.)
