You would certainly have to be careful with pearls. Definitely nothing acidic if you value them.

I have my great-grandmother's pearls.  The only thing I've ever used to clean them was olive oil soap, recommended by a jeweler who re-strung them for me about thirty years ago. 
they have lived in a safe-deposit box at my bank for many years as the insurance for keeping them at home got too expensive.  They are "Indian" pearls with a pinkish tinge which I was told was quite rare.  She got them as a wedding present in 1862 when she was 18. 
I am going to give them to my daughter on her birthday this year.

How lovely Andie. I have my Mum's Mikimoto pearls. I would like to wear them but I should get them checked first, I'd them to break when they were on me.

Wow Andie. What a wonderful present for your daughter. I have my mothers pearls (my sister doesn't like pearls  ???) but they need to be checked before I wear them. And Santa, if it's not too early, a pearl ring would be a lovely gift this Christmas ;D

What a wonderful gift to give your DD Andiesenji.

I have my Mum's pearls and my Grand Mothers opals.  I'm too scared to wear any of them in case something happened to them :)`

Can anyone remember the name of the cookie jar that Djinni and I think Mich and JD were talking about?

Thanks  :)

Yvette the one I received from my SS is so useful. It keeps the cookies really fresh.
