How to take care of your jewellery?

Proper care of jewellery can keep it looking beautiful for a long time. Here are some general tips on how to take care of your jewellery:

  • Keep it Clean: Regularly clean your jewellery to remove dust, dirt, and oils from your skin. Depending on the type of jewellery, you may use a soft cloth, gentle soap, and warm water. For precious gems and metals, specific cleaning solutions can be used. Make sure to dry the jewellery thoroughly after cleaning.
  • Avoid Chemicals: Exposure to chemicals can damage or discolor precious metals and may harm some colored gems. Remove your jewellery before using cleaning supplies, cosmetics, hair products, or perfumes.
  • Proper Storage: Store your jewellery in a clean and dry place. It’s best to keep jewellery in a fabric-lined jewelry box, or wrapped in a soft cloth. Keep different types of jewellery separately to avoid scratches.
  • Handle with Care: Always handle your jewellery carefully. Some materials, such as gold, can scratch easily. Gems, even diamonds, can chip if hit with enough force or at just the right angle.
  • Regular Check-ups: For fine jewellery, especially pieces that you wear regularly like engagement rings or bracelets, it’s good to have them checked annually by a professional. They can assess for any damage or wear, make necessary repairs, and give them a thorough cleaning.
  • Avoid Water Damage: Remove your jewellery before you swim or bathe, as prolonged exposure to water can weaken its structure. Chlorine, in particular, can damage gold alloys.
  • Protect from Extreme Temperatures: Some gemstones can be damaged by sudden changes in temperature. Try to avoid wearing such jewellery in situations where it will be exposed to extreme heat or cold.

Remember, different types of jewellery may require different care, so it’s always a good idea to ask for specific care instructions when purchasing a new piece of jewellery.
