CARING FOR YOUR JEWELLERY

 

STORE

Store each piece individually: to prevent tangles and reduce scratching.

Keep your jewellery somewhere dry: damp or hot conditions can tarnish metals and damage certain stones over time.

 

PROLONG ITS LIFE

Last thing on and the first thing off: avoid contact with nail polish remover, perfume or hairspray.

Take off  when swimming or cleaning, harsh chemicals may damage your pieces.

Clean your jewellery regularly with designated products and do follow maker’s instructions!


 

YOUR GEMS

Protect your pieces from impact against hard surfaces.

Gemstones such as amethyst, emerald, opal, pearl, peridot, tanzanite and tourmaline are very delicate and are easily abraded.

 

YOUR PEARLS

Pearls are relatively soft and can scratch easily, especially if stored with other jewellery.

Avoid spraying perfume or other strong chemicals onto your pearls, and keep them away from direct heat.

Do not submerge your pearls in water.

When cleaning your pearls, refrain from using any strong detergents. Instead, wipe them with a dry, lint-free fabric.

Keep your pearls in a soft pouch made of chamois, silk or leather. Never in a plastic bag.

 

YOUR SILVER

Using & wearing  Silver

Use & wear it!: Sterling silver tarnishes, especially when exposed to salt air and products containing sulfur, such as rubber bands and some papers. However, silver that is regularly used typically needs less care, so use or wear your silver every day.

 

Washing Silver

Wash silver by hand, in warm water with a mild detergent.

Dry your silver immediately after washing, to avoid spotting.

 

Polishing Silver

Use specially intended silver polish.

Avoid "dip" polishes: some may contain harsh chemicals.

Electrolytic cleaning (aluminum foil, salt and baking soda in a water base) is not recommended.

 

Oxidised Pieces

An "oxidised" finish is the deliberate blackening of crevices often in the ornamentation of a silver object to make its decorative details stand out.

This finish can be removed by overzealous cleaning and polishing - so easy on those!

 

YOUR GOLD & PLATINUM

Between professional servicing, keep your gold and platinum jewellery in order with a non-abrasive cleaner.

Do not expose your gold jewellery to household bleach, your gold is likely to discolor and possibly disintegrate.

Keep your gold in a case or a tarnish-resistant, soft pouch made of chamois, silk or leather.

 

Happy wearing! x
