Caring for your Jewellery

  • Keep all your jewellery separate so that they do not scratch one another.
  • Remove all jewellery when swimming as chlorine may damage them.
  • Remove all jewellery while bathing or showering as the soap causes a soapy film on jewellery.
  • Protect your jewellery from damage by removing them while doing house work or gardening.
  • Have your jewellery checked and cleaned by a professional jeweller at least once a year.
  • Keep your jewellery out of direct sunlight and fireplaces as the heat can cause your jewellery to fade.
  • When dressing up for work or going out always remember to put your jewellery on last, as hairspray, make-up can cause damage to your jewellery.
  • Do not wear too many chains at once as they can rub against eachother and damage each of the chains.
  • When working with food, remove all jewellery as strong smelling foods can blemish the gold.
  • Try to clean your jewellery at least once a month by using warm soapy water with a soft toothbrush or buy a special cleaning product from your jeweller.
  • Wear your jewellery as often as possible as this keeps the metals bright.
  • Remove chains and bracelets when going to sleep to prevent them from breaking.
  • Check your jewellery for loose stones to prevent you from losing them.

Caring for your Pearls

  • Always remember that a pearl is a gem, which is organic by nature and grown in water from living cells of a living creature.
  • Do not swim with your pearls on.
  • Never expose to chlorinated water.
  • Pearls must be kept away from extreme heat.
  • Store pearls seperately from your other jewelery.
  • Store pearls in a damp linen cloth as this helps to prevent the pearls from drying out.
  • Always put your pearls on last when getting ready as make-up, perfume and hairspray can damage your pearls.
  • After wear, always remember to wipe your pearls with a soft cloth.
  • Remove pearls when bathing or showering.
  • Restring your pearls regularly.

Caring for your Platinum Jewellery

  • Clean platinum periodically in the same way you clean other fine jewellery –using a pre-packaged jewellery cleaner or by soaking it in a mild solution of soap and warm water then gently rubbing it with a soft cloth.
  • Have your platinum jewellery professionally cleaned once in a while.
  • If looked after properly your platinum jewellery should not need to be repaired, but, for adjustments, re-sizing, polishing and cleaning look for a qualified jeweller with a platinum trained bench worker.
