Jewelry Care

Fine jewelry is not just a symbol of elegance; it's an investment that needs proper care to maintain its beauty and longevity. Here's a straightforward guide to keeping your precious pieces looking their best.

Cleaning Diamonds

  1. Choose the Right Cleaner: Use a commercial jewelry cleaner specifically designed for diamonds or prepare a mild solution of soap and warm water.

  2. Scrub Gently: Use a new, soft-bristled toothbrush to gently brush the diamond, focusing on the underside, where dirt and oil build up.

  3. Rinse and Dry: Rinse the diamond with warm water, and dry with a lint-free cloth.

Caring for Pearls

  1. Wipe After Wearing: Use a soft, dry cloth to wipe your pearls after wearing them to remove body oils and residue.

  2. Clean with Care: If a deeper clean is needed, moisten a cloth with water and gently clean each pearl.

  3. Dry Flat: Lay the pearls on a soft cloth to dry. Don't hang pearl necklaces to dry as this can stretch the thread.

Maintaining Gold Jewelry

  1. Prepare Cleaning Solution: Mix a bit of mild dish soap with warm water.

  2. Soak and Scrub: Soak the gold jewelry briefly, then use a soft toothbrush to remove any dirt gently.

  3. Rinse and Polish: Rinse the jewelry with clean water and polish with a soft, lint-free cloth.

What Not To Do

  • Avoid Harsh Chemicals: Chlorine, bleach, and strong detergents can damage jewelry. Keep your pieces away from such substances.

  • Beware of Abrasives: Baking soda, toothpaste, and abrasive cleaners can scratch metals and gemstones.

  • Skip the DIY Methods: Household remedies like vinegar, lemon juice, or baking soda can harm certain metals and stones.

  • Don't Overheat: Steer clear of direct sunlight and don't clean your jewelry with hot water, as heat can cause damage to some gemstones.

  • Be Careful with Ultrasonic Cleaners: These are not suitable for all jewelry, especially delicate stones or pieces with loose settings.

Professional Care

Despite best efforts at home, some jewelry may require professional cleaning, especially if it has intricate designs or if you're unsure of the gemstone's treatments. Visit your jeweler for professional cleaning and inspection once a year to ensure settings are secure and stones remain vibrant.
