Jewelry Care Tips
Tips for Preserving Your Precious Pieces
- Remove all jewelry while washing your hands, showering, applying lotions, soaps, hairsprays, and perfumes. These products will cause fine jewelry to become dull, and faux jewelry to discolor.
- Avoid household detergents coming into contact with your jewelry. They may be harsh on the metal.
- Do not wear jewelry while doing gardening, playing sports, at the beach, or gym or in chlorinated water. Jewelry may get bent, scratched, or stones may fall out.
- Fine jewelry can be cleaned at a professional jeweler.
Tips for Cleaning
- Use only a soft brush, never sharp or hard objects, to remove dirt or particles.
- Clean your jewelry often. Lotions, soaps and skin oils alter the optical properties of diamonds and gemstones, causing them to look dull.
- Seriously soiled jewelry should be cleaned professionally.
- Clean diamond jewelry with a soft brush dipped in warm water and mild detergent: rinse under running water.
- Never expose pearl jewelry to chemicals or solvents and store each piece in a soft bag.
- Don’t expose colored gemstones to chemicals, solvents or ultrasonic without knowing their specific cleaning requirements.
