Jewel Care - Stunning As Ever
With proper care, precious jewellery can last for decades and bring you years of delight. These tips are designed to show you how you will get lasting pleasure from your purchases and bequeaths. By taking a few extra minutes of care or adapting practical advice you can safe guard them for longer.
Beauty products can affect jewellery. Spray of perfume or hairspray can discolour gold or make pearls turn yellow. Put jewellery on after you have used your cosmetics and sprays.
Take off your jewellery especially rings when doing household chores or gardening. They could be damaged by knocking out stones or coming into contact with abrasive materials, which also discolour metal.
Settings can get clogged up with soap and hand cream. Take them off before washing hands and using cream.
Heat and hot water can loosen settings where an adhesive has been used. Pearl rings, earrings and pendants have this type of setting, so be careful with them!
Don't wear too many chains at one time, they will tangle and rub off one another causing damage.
Strong smelling foods e.g. fish & onions can tarnish gold and silver.
Wear jewellery as much as possible, as this keeps the metals bright.
Clean your jewellery periodically. An old soft toothbrush is ideal to get into mostly all the difficult nooks and corners. Rub gently with warm soapy water or purchase jewellery cleaning fluid from your jeweller.
