Jewellery Care

Many factors can influence the condition of jewellery. Therefore you should make sure that your jewellery is properly cleaned, repaired and stored. Take care to avoid extreme humidity or heat as this may cause tarnishing. This will keep them looking their best. Avoid direct contact with water and chemical products e.g. soap, perfume, abrasive products. Avoid impact with hard surfaces. Protect them from moisture and keep away from all sources of heat such as radiators and windows

 you may pay special attention and handle them with care following our tips below:

CARE INSTRUCTIONS

  • Do not wear jewellery when in the swimming pool, Jacuzzi, sauna/steam room or while bathing or showering. Chlorine, detergents, oils & perfumes can all cause tarnishing & damage.
  • Always put jewellery on last as a finishing touch after getting ready.
  • Make-up, perfume & hairspray all contain chemicals which may dull the finish of jewellery.
  • Gently wipe jewellery clean with a soft cloth after each wear to remove make up & oils (from skin).
  • Thoroughly dry jewellery after exposure to water: moisture can cause tarnishing & may weaken springs & clasps.
  • Remove jewellery when doing household tasks.
  • Keep away from extreme temperatures, humidity and avoid wearing your jewellery when using bleach.

 Storing

To protect your jewellery, pieces should be individually placed in a pouch or within a soft lined box to stop them being scratched or tangled. Ideally store your jewellery in a dark, cool and dry place, and try to keep pieces apart, so that they don't rub together or tangle up.

 Cleaning metal-

Using soft, lint free cloth is an effective way to keep silver, jewellery looking shiny and lustrous. A silver cleaner can also be used to clean sterling silver pieces. Ideally, store silver pieces in an airtight bag to help reduce tarnishing. Do not use tissue paper or paper towels to clean metal as they can cause scratching.

Gemstones – 

Since many gemstones are quite delicate, hot water, harsh chemicals and cleaners should be avoided at all times. We advise cleaning your precious stones with a clean, soft, damp cloth after wearing. Very porous stones such as turquoise and emeralds should be cleaned using an untreated, dry, soft cloth only. Do not use tissue paper or paper towels to clean gemstones as they can cause scratching.
