Fine Jewellery Care Tips

Fine jewellery should be enjoyed for years to come.

Precious metals, fine stones, crystals and beads are not indestructible so please follow these guidelines to ensure years of enjoyment:
  • Avoid direct contact with perfumes, lotions, hair sprays and other chemicals by putting your jewellery on after you've applied these, especially if your item has a plated finish.
  • Always remove jewellery before going to bed so that prongs don't hook on your hair or bedding.
  • Avoid heat shock which can cause delicate stones to crack by avoiding very high or very low temperatures such as boiling water.
  • Remove jewellery before bathing, showering or swimming to prevent them from slipping off unnoticed when your skin is wet.
  • Do not wear jewellery when you're busy with physical activities such as gym, gardening etc as your fine jewellery might get bent or damaged.
  • Occasionally wash jewellery with a mild warm water and dish soap solution, using a soft toothbrush to gently brush away caked on dirt and oils.
  • Wipe clean and polish with a soft jewellery polishing cloth such as this one when you need to restore lustre.
  • Store jewellery away in a safe and soft place, such as a jewellery box or pouch, when not wearing. Oxygen exposure can encourage tarnishing on some metals, even pure gold, over time.
  • Do not store with hard materials such as diamonds, as these can scratch softer stones and metals when they're crowded in the same box of pouch.
