Jewellery Care :

Jewellery is one of our most intimate and cherished accessories. Understanding how to care for your treasured jewellery can make a world of difference in maintaining its beauty and keeping its heirloom quality sparkling for generations to come. Hence it is very important to know your jewellery and be familiar with its care tips.

Care Tips :

  • Store your jewellery in a dry place away from humidity, moisture and extreme temperatures.

  • Always store your jewellery in a fabric-lined box, separately or individually wrapped in tissue to prevent scratches.

  • Never expose jewellery to harsh chemicals, lotions, hairspray, cosmetics or perfumes as this could cause damage and discoloration.

  • Never wear jewellery while doing physical work such as housekeeping, gardening or exercising.

  • Never expose jewellery to household cleaning products.

  • Never expose jewellery to chlorine in swimming pools or hot tubs.

Tips for Cleaning:

  • Clean your jewellery in a secure location, not on the rim of a sink where a piece may slip down the drain.

  • Clean your jewellery often because lotions, soaps and skin oils alter the optical properties of diamonds and gemstones, causing them to look dull.

  • Seriously soiled jewellery should be cleaned professionally.

  • Clean diamond jewellery with a soft brush dipped in warm water and mild soap (no detergent); rinse under running water. Never use sharp or hard objects, to remove dirt off your jewellery.

  • Use a non-abrasive silver cloth or soft lint-free cloth to polish jewellery and remove oils, perspiration and tarnishing.

  • Never expose pearl jewellery to chemicals or solvents and store each piece in a soft bag.

  • Don't expose coloured gemstones to chemicals, solvents or ultrasonics without knowing their specific cleaning requirements.

Tips for Long Life:

  • Have your jewellery cleaned and checked by a professional for worn mountings, loose prongs and general condition at least once a year.

  • Have white gold re-plated, platinum re-polished and prongs re-tipped as necessary to maintain original condition (generally once a year).

  • Have frequently-worn pearls restrung as necessary, with a knot between each pearl to prevent loss if the string breaks.

  • Check for signs of wear and tear regularly, especially on catches and joints. Stone settings can become loose over time, especially if they have been hit against a hard surface or snagged on clothing.

  • Select daily-wear jewellery that is in harmony with your lifestyle and schedule of activities.

Treat each piece as if it were a family heirloom, for someday it may be.
