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.
- 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.
- 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.
