Jewellery Care Tips
Remove your jewellery when you sleep, shower, clean and exercise. Avoid contact with perfume, hairspray, chlorine and other chemicals.. This is particularly important is your piece has stones. To avoid stones loosing their sparkle it is best to remove rings when washing your hands. Soap and hand cream gets easily lodged under the stones and even a little affects the shine.
Cleaning your jewellery regularly will keep your pieces looking good. Silver particularly oxidises over time and goes dark when the silver reacts with hydrogen sulphide in the air. If you want to clean your jewellery yourself use luke warm water, a tiny bit of washing up liquid and a soft toothbrush. Rinse in water and dry gently.
For jewellery with stones use only warm water. Especially Opals, Turquoise, Coral and Pearls are porous and sensitive. Even the slightest bit of ammonia (contained in some soaps and cleaning liquids) will make these stones matt..
