Pearls were presented as gifts to Chinese royalty as early as 2300 BC, while in ancient Rome, pearl jewelry was considered the ultimate status symbol. So precious were the spherical gems that in the 1st century BC, Julius Caesar passed a law limiting the wearing of pearls only to the ruling classes.

*HOW TO TAKE CARE OF YOUR PEARLS: After every wear, wipe your pearls with a soft cloth.

Both of these methods are likely to damage the outer layer of the pearl.
