Jewellery care guide

Cleaning:

You won't normally have to clean your jewellery very often but it is important to look after your beautiful things. Fortunately when it comes to cleaning your jewellery, the easiest methods are also the safest for it.

In almost every case the best ways to clean precious metals and gemstones is a simple light scrub with a toothbrush in some warm water and a mild dish soap. A quick 30 seconds will bring your jewellery back to as good as new!

After washing your jewellery, make sure to rinse it off thoroughly in a glass of clean water. (If you rinse it over the sink you might accidentally drop it and we don't like accidents!)

We also recommend when cleaning silver to get some silver polish and a small cloth as a small wipe and polish will bring the very best out of your silver jewellery.


Storage:

The best way to care for your jewellery is to store it safely.
Metals such as gold and stones like pearls are quite soft and can scratch/damage easily (although all metals and s. A good jewellery box is essential to store your beautiful things and save them from any accidental damage.

Also the addition of a good jewellery box means you can store bracelets and necklaces separately - which prevents the nightmare of untangling chains when you want to wear something different.


Keep away from chemicals.

When possible it is always best to remove your jewellery when using soaps, lotions or even better, only put your jewellery on last when getting ready. Chemicals accelerate the wear and tarnishing of jewellery - and please note that chlorine is especially damaging to jewellery so always take it off when going swimming.

If your jewellery does come in contact with chemicals, make sure that you rinse off any straight away to avoid build up which can make cleaning difficult.

Store jewellery separately so that pieces do not tangle, rub or scratch against each other.
