How to care for your jewelry

Owing to our elaborate craftsmanship and ethically sourced material, our jewelry last for long and withstand your everyday wear. Proper care will certainly add to the lasting quality of your jewelry for the years to come. We have thus come up with this Basic Jewelry Care Guide, as a simple guideline for the care and cleaning of your fine jewelry:

Keep Your Jewelry Secure

Store your jewelry pieces individually in a container, preferably the original soft-lined jewelry box so that the cherished pieces do not tangle, scratch, or rub together. For multiple pieces stored in one container, it is strongly suggested you choose a soft-lined case with compartments to divide each piece, or you may add a soft-texture wrapping (i.e. soft tissue paper) on each piece individually if you opt for an ordinary box.

Remove Your Jewelry Before Bathing

Remove all jewelry before showering, swimming, or cleaning. Chlorine, salty water, and even freshwater affect the color and luster in various ways. Chlorine is a particular underminer for silver in that it makes your silver pieces discolored. Soapy water during bathing or shower also leaves a film, making the metal look dull.

Use Jewelry Polishing Cloths to restore the luster

If the pieces have turned dull, professional jewelry polishing cloth is a great option to restore the luster. An old towel may also work, though professional clothes are mostly recommended. Avoid using tissue or paper towels as the fibers can cause scratches on your jewelry.

Clean Your Jewelry with Care

Regular and proper cleaning helps to keep your jewelry lasting, but proceed with caution. You can either purchase commercial cleaners from a jeweler or clean it yourself. Rubbing alcohol works effectively on stains, but bleach can destroy jewelry so avoid it by all means.

Use Warm Water

Warm water is the best option for cleaning most of your jewelry, but with the exception of sterling silver, which is particularly liable to discoloration when exposed to residual chlorine in the water. To offset the impact, buffing or a tarnish remover is always recommended for your silver pieces.

Avoid Cleaning Damaged Jewelry

Do not try to clean any jewelry that is damaged, cracked, or broken in case of a worsening of the situation. If you find that a piece of jewelry is damaged, it should be set aside for repair as soon as possible.
