To ensure that your jewellery maintains its beauty, shine, and durability over time, please consider these simple guidelines:

  • Avoid exposure to chemicals :
    Keep your jewellery away from perfumes and other strong chemicals, as they can tarnish or damage the metal and gemstones.

 

  • Remove during bathing, swimming or physical activities :
    Take off your jewellery before taking a bath or going swimming to prevent exposure to chlorine, saltwater, and sand, which can be abrasive and harmful. It’s best to remove your jewellery before engaging in any exercise or physical activities to prevent accidental damage from impacts and excess sweat.

 

  • Don’t wear while sleeping :
    Avoid wearing your jewellery while sleeping to prevent any potential damage or entanglement during the night.

 

  • Proper storage :
    Store your jewellery in a clean, dry, and cool place. Avoid storing them in extreme temperatures or exposing them to direct sunlight, as this can cause damage over time.

 

  • Always put on your jewellery last :
    It’s always a good practice to put on your jewellery last after you’ve finished dressing and applying cosmetics or perfumes. This helps to reduce the exposure to chemicals that may affect the appearance of your jewellery and ensures that it remains in pristine condition for longer.
GOLD JEWELLERY

Given that gold is resistant to tarnishing and corrosion from air and water, it needs minimal care to maintain its beauty. To clean a piece made entirely of gold, you can use a small amount of liquid soap and softly brush it with a gentle brush, then rinse the jewellery in lukewarm water and dry it with a soft, dry cloth.

SILVER JEWELLERY

Silver can tarnish over time when exposed to air and moisture, so it will benefit from regular care to keep it looking its best. To clean a piece of silver jewellery,
use a small amount of mild liquid soap and gently scrub it with a soft brush, then rinse the jewellery under lukewarm water and dry it with a microfiber cloth. This simple routine can help preserve the shine and beauty of your silver jewellery for years to come.

TITANIUM JEWELLERY

Titanium jewellery is durable and resistant to tarnishing but occasional cleaning must be maintained. Use a mild liquid soap to clean titanium jewellery and softly brush it with a gentle brush, followed by rinsing the jewellery under lukewarm water and drying it with a soft, dry cloth. This simple care routine will help keep your titanium jewellery looking its best and ensure its longevity.

 

AVOID:

Using harsh soaps, abrasive materials, or aggressive cleaners and brushes can result in scratches on your jewellery, leading to a loss of shine and affecting its overall appearance. Additionally, ultrasonic cleaners can risk damaging gemstones or causing settings to become loose. It’s important to handle your jewellery carefully and choose gentle cleaning methods to preserve its beauty and prevent potential damage.

RECOMMENDED:

Consider sending your jewellery for occasional professional polishing to help maintain its shine and overall appearance. Professional polishing can effectively remove surface scratches and restore the lustre of your jewellery, ensuring it looks its best for years to come.

Here’s a reminder to keep in mind : treat your jewellery delicately as it deserves. When removing rings, do so gently from the sides and never from the top stone to avoid any accidental damage to the stones. It’s a good idea to take off your jewellery before swimming to protect it from pool chemicals and potential slipping due to temperature changes. Similarly, removing jewellery before showering helps maintain its lustrous appearance by avoiding contact with soaps and shampoos.

For those who prefer to wear their jewellery constantly, regular maintenance is key to ensuring its longevity. When storing your jewellery after wear, keep each piece separate to prevent tangling and scratching. While solid gold is durable, it can develop scratches over time, so handling it with care is important.

When it comes to storing your jewellery, it’s crucial to avoid methods that could harm them. Never use rubber containers, as they can speed up tarnishing and cause your jewellery to darken over time. Additionally, avoid storing your jewellery in bathrooms or humid locations, as moisture can be damaging.

Here are some recommendations to follow :

  • Separate jewellery by metal : This helps prevent metals from tarnishing when they come into contact with each other.
  • Clean your jewellery before storing it : Storing dirty jewellery for an extended period can lead to tarnishing.
  • Find a dry (and dark) spot for storage : Humidity is not a friend to jewellery!
  • Ensure pieces don’t touch each other to avoid scratching.

 

By following these guidelines, you can help ensure that your jewellery remains in excellent condition for years to come.
