General Care For All Jewellery Types

To get the best out of your beautiful new jewellery, it’s important to know how to care for it properly. Naturally, everyone wants their jewellery kept in sparkling condition; there’s nothing like the brilliant shine of polished metals and pristine gems to really showcase the beauty of that favourite ring or necklace.

The added benefit to taking good care of your jewellery is ensuring its longevity. There’s nothing worse than unintentionally damaging a piece simply because you were unaware that it would be vulnerable during certain activities, or if exposed to certain substances.

Caring for your jewellery
Jewellery Care Guidelines
  • Remove jewellery before entering any aquatic environment, while conducting cleaning tasks or while doing exercise.
  • Thoroughly dry your jewellery with a clean, dry and soft cloth once it has been exposed to water.
  • Makeup, perfume and hairspray can damage your jewellery. Make sure that your accessories are the last to be put on.
  • Make sure that your jewellery is the first thing to come off before getting undressed.
  • Gently wipe your jewellery clean to remove skin oils and makeup.
  • To avoid scratching gold jewellery, keep it stored in a separate compartment within your jewellery box or in a soft fabric pouch.
  • Purchase a quality jewellery cleaning solution and cloth from your jeweller and clean your jewellery frequently.
