Jewellery Care Guide
Some helpful tips and information for keeping your jewellery at its best:
First and foremost, please treat your jewellery with care – ideally remove jewellery when carrying out any physical work: gardening, sports, etc. Jewellery should always be removed before swimming, bathing and sleeping. For optimum care store your jewellery in their original box or a jewellery box.
Perfume and other beauty products can damage your jewellery; pearls and some gemstones are particularly susceptible. Always apply your products before putting on your jewellery and leave for a few minutes to be absorbed by the skin.
As a precaution, it is advisable to have your jewellery checked by a professional at least once a year to assess any wear or possible damage.
Here is a handy four step ring cleaning guide:
- Fill a small container with hot water, just below boiling temperature is fine. Place the ring in the water and this will start to break down any soap or hand cream which has accumulated under the setting.
- Now add a small amount of washing up liquid to the hot water. Use an old toothbrush brush to clean around the settings.
- Leave the ring to soak in the warm soapy solution for around five minutes, and then give it another brush around the setting.
- Time to rinse. Fill a small container with some clean hot water and leave the ring to soak for another five minutes. Dry with some paper towel.
