With reasonable care, your jewellery can be a lasting treasure.
- For routine care, it’s best to wash your jewellery with a jewellery cleaner once a month. Note that different jewellery cleaner are used for different purposes (e.g. the jewellery cleaner for diamonds and precious stones cannot be used to wash pearl jewellery).
- Store your jewellery separately from each other as the metal may scratch the gemstone or pearl surfaces.
- It is advisable to take off your jewellery when performing household chores, gardening and outdoor sports. If your ring or other jewellery has undergone trauma, such as having been dropped or knocked against hard surfaces, we strongly advise a professional check to ensure the firm setting of the diamond / gemstone.
- For pearls, never store pearls in a plastic bag. Plastic can emit a chemical that will damage the surface of pearls. The same is true of cotton wool. Also, never store pearls in a safe deposit box for a long time. Like your skin, pearls need a little moisture so that they will not dry out.
- Jewellery can be damaged by many chemicals and all acids. The list includes hair spray, perfume, cosmetics, and even perspiration. Always apply perfume, hair products and cosmetics before putting on your jewellery. Remember: when dressing, jewellery should be the last thing you put on and the first thing you take off.
- Apply lotion, cosmetics, hairspray and perfume before dressing in jewelry.
- When undressing, wipe each piece with a clean soft cloth to remove oils and perspiration.
- Store in a fabric-lined box, separately or individually-wrapped in tissue to prevent scratches.
- Never wear jewelry when doing physical work such as housekeeping, gardening or exercise.
- Never expose jewelry to household cleaning products.
- Never expose jewelry to chlorine swimming pools or hot tubs.
