Jewelry storage is important as well. At the time of purchase, all jewelry is wrapped in a protective box, case or tarnish-resistant pouch. Between wearings, we recommend that you place it back in its original case or another suitably lined box or pouch.

 

 

 

Between professional servicing, most gold and platinum jewelry can be maintained with a non-abrasive cleaner. Examine your jewelry regularly to make sure settings are tight and clasps are secure.

Avoid exposing your jewelry to household bleach, which will quickly cause discoloration and possibly disintegratation.

Precautions should be taken with all of your jewelry. However, some gemstones require special care.

Be mindful and protect your jewelry by avoiding impact against hard and abrasive surfaces. Diamonds, being the hardest rating on the Mohs Scale, can still chip if hit with enough force or at just the right angle. Many stones such as amethyst, emerald, kunzite, opal, pearl, peridot, tanzanite and tourmaline are very delicate and easily abraded. Gemstones can scratch other gemstones and wear away at precious metals.  Extreme temperatures, perfumes, cosmetics, ultrasonic cleaning and household chemicals can also damage jewelry.

Diamonds should always be professionally cleaned, but a quick do it at home formula can be used by mixing warm water and soap, gently using a toothbrush with a soft bristle brush to wipe down your jewelry.

If worn often, pearls should be cleaned and restrung professionally once a year. Between cleanings, wipe pearls gently with a damp cloth.
