Tips & Tricks

Tips to Maintain your Jewellery

Always :
  • Apply lotion, cosmetics, hairspray and perfume before wearing your jewellery.
  • After removal of jewellery, wipe each piece with a clean soft cloth to remove oils and perspiration.
  • Store in fabric-lined box, separately or individually-wrapped in tissue to prevent scratches.
Never :
  • Never wear jewellery when doing physical work such as housekeeping, gardening or exercise.
  • Never expose jewellery to household cleaning products, such as bleach and chlorine.
Tips for Cleaning:
  • Follow the instructions appearing on the label or box.
  • Clean in a secure location; not the rim of a sink, where a piece may slip down the drain.
  • Use only a soft brush, never sharp or hard objects, to remove dirt or particles.
  • Clean your jewellery often. Lotions, soaps and skin oils alter the optical properties of diamonds and gemstones, causing them to look dull.
  • Seriously spoiled jewellery should be cleaned professionally.
  • Clean diamond jewellery with a soft brush dipped in warm water and mild detergent and rinse under running water.
  • Never expose pearl jewellery and coloured gemstone to chemicals, solvents or ultrasonic without knowing their specific cleaning requirements.
  • Store each piece in a soft bag.
Tips for Long Life:
  • Keep your laboratory reports n a safe location, separate from jewellery pieces, for security.
  • Have your jewellery cleaned and checked by a professional for worn mountings, loose prongs and general condition at least once per year.
  • Have white gold re-plated, platinum re-polished and prongs re-tipped as necessary to maintain original condition (generally every 24 months or so).
  • Have frequently worn pearls re-strung as necessary, with a knot between each pearl to prevent loss if the string breaks.
  • Some coloured gemstones should not be exposed to sudden temperature changes; know your pieces and their needs.
  • Select daily wear jewellery that is in harmony with your lifestyle and schedule of activities.
  • Treat each piece as if it is a family heirloom, for one day it will be!
