Care

How to care for your jewellery

  • Keep your jewellery in a clean dry place seperated in boxes or tissue paper.
  • Don’t mix pieces together as they can chip or scratch each other.
  • Have your jewellery cleaned and checked at least once a year for any signs of wear and tear.
  • Over time jewellery can get a build of soap, we advise to remove your jewellery when washing, if you can, however, if you should need to clean your jewellery we advise warm water and a soft toothbrush (preferably a baby’s one) and to gently dry with a soft cloth.

Gold Jewellery

  • Remove all gold jewellery before using any soap as it can cause a film to form making them appear dull.
  • Beware of Chlorine. Chlorine can discolour or permanently damage your gold jewellery.

Pearl Jewellery

  • Pearls are delicate and susceptible to damage.
  • Apply perfume, cosmetics and hairspray before putting on your pearls.
  • Clean your pearls with a soft cloth to remove any of these substances after wear.
  • Keep your pearl jewellery seperate as it is soft and can be damaged by other gemstones or hard metal edges.

Diamonds and Gemstones

  • Diamonds are the hardest substance known to man, but can still be dulled or damaged.
  • Don’t wear your diamonds and gemstones when doing rough work. A hard blow can cause a chip.
  • Avoid getting your diamond or gemstones in contact with Chlorine bleach or other chemicals as they can discolour the mounting.

Porous Gems

These include:

Turquoise, Aventurine, Lapis Lazuli and Opal.

  • Apply cosmetics, hairspray and perfume before putting on your jewellery.
  • Wipe clean with a soft cloth after wear to remove any trace of these substances.
  • Keep any jewellery seperate in boxes or tissue paper to avoid scratching.
