Cleaning your jewellery at home
Regular cleaning is essential to maintain the brilliance of your jewellery. Our recommendation is a gentle approach using a mild soap, warm water, and a soft brush. Avoid harsh chemicals, as they may damage certain gemstones or metals.
We also recommend regularly inspecting your jewellery for any loose stones, clasps, or signs of wear. If you notice anything amiss, please bring it to our attention promptly and our skilled jewellers can perform repairs and preventive maintenance to keep your pieces in optimal condition.
Ensure proper storage of your jewellery
Proper storage is crucial. Keep your jewellery in separate compartments or individual pouches to prevent scratching or tangling. For more delicate items, consider lined boxes to provide an extra layer of protection.
When not wearing your jewellery, store it in a secure place. A home safe or a safety deposit box can provide an extra layer of protection, especially for high-value items. This ensures that your cherished pieces are safeguarded against theft or loss.
What to avoid when wearing your jewellery
Chemicals, including perfumes, lotions, and household cleaners, can affect the integrity of your jewellery. Apply these products before putting on your jewellery to minimize exposure. Additionally, remove your jewellery before swimming, as chlorine in pools and salt in seawater can be harmful.
