Disfamily5, I believe by law, sterling silver needs to be marked with .925.
Check inside the ring If it is sterling, there should be a mark stating so.
A polishing cloth could be used to clean off tarnish. Just don't rub the pearl with the cloth. Never put pearls in a sonic jewelry cleaner or soak pearls in liquid jewelry cleaner.

Take special care when wearing pearl jewelry. I mean they should be treated with alot of extra care to keep them in good condition. Especially rings- you know how active hands are, try to avoid scratching the pearl, avoid 'soaking it' (washing dishes or swimming, hot tubbing..) because they are glued into place & that might loosen the setting. Esp. Necklaces- put them on after you apply hair spray or perfume. Store them separately,(esp when traveling) not with any other jewelry that could rub or scratch the pearls if they shifted around with other pieces.

Occassionally check the settings of your jewelry to make sure the pearl/stone has not become loose, or a clasp doesn't close properly.
Pearls are so beautiful & easy to keep lovely if you take extra care.

Here is an article that explains care better than I just tried!

Very pretty. I plan to get a ring as well. Do you what you paid for the whole experience?

Wow, what a great close-up. That is really pretty and I love the color. Thanks for the prices too.

Okay, so I hadn't thought about how to care for those little guys. One of the first things I do when I come home from work, besides kicking off my shoes, is to take off my rings. I'm covered there. I want to get a ring b/c I have a special Mother and Child necklace that I wear and I don't wear anything else. Is there a ring setting that is better for a pearl, kind of like the cage for the necklace to protect it?

I have to smile to myself when I read the posts about how some of your daughters will love to 'pick an oyster'. MY husband LOVES to do this!!!! He would spend all of his money in Japan picking oysters just to see what type of pearl he gets. I have MANY different sizes and colors in almost every setting from rings, neckless and earrings. He enjoys doing this so much and I benefit from it!!!!

I got a ring from Japan Epcot a few years ago and I lost the pearl.

Do you think if I brought my ring, and purchased a new pearl, they would reset the new pearl for me?

Hi Pearl lovers! I finally took a picture of my pearls. I love both settings. For those getting a ring - be sure to take into account the swelling of your fingers in the Florida heat. My pinky ring fits on my ring finger!

Beautiful. Were the two pearls on the necklace picked from the same oyster?

No - my son picked one, pinkish tint, and my daughter the other, yellowish. They were both 7.5mm. I like the "mother's necklace" they made together!

i've never done this pearl thing, but am planning to next trip - my question is: are all the pearls so perfectly round? or are some misshapen-ish?
