I have a white Akoya & white fresh water necklaces that I have owned for a few years. Over time they have both turned an ivory white. I keep them in velvet pearl pouches in a draw. They have not been worn very often & I always wipe them down with a microfibre cloth before putting them away. I have just bought Hanadama pearl necklace & matching earrings that are white with a rose overtone. They are absolutely stunning & I'm worried that they too will turn ivory with time. Is is common for white pearls to change colour of is there something else going on. Also I never spray perfume or hairspray when I'm wearing my pearls.
