Great question! And, safety first here, always follow the manufacturer’s instructions on any solution(s) you are using whether it’s Liver of Sulfur, Silver Black, etc. and always wear protective eye gear.
Here’s my answer: You should not place your pearls or other porous gemstones (such as turquoise, etc.) or fragile beads (painted, AB coated crystals, etc.) into a solution of Liver of Sulfur.

a bit of it's beautiful luster. If I had a before and after pic, it would
probably be a lot easier to tell the difference.
