    Real pearls are worth taking to a jeweler to have cleaned. It is not too expensive, and while cleaning them she will examine the string for weakness, etc.

    Only use clean water and a soft, clean cloth to wipe them. Make sure they are dry before putting them away.

    Hello Vilmaaviles2003; I too have Pearls, and I like to be able to safely clean them at home.
    What my Jeweler told me to do is this. I use water, an old toothbrush, and a tiny half drop of toothpaste. I gently clean the pearl, and the setting.
    This works well for me. Take Care.
