A little care invested in your jewellery will pay off in the long run!
Direct contact with liquids and aerosols, including perfume, insect repellent, creams, makeup and hairspray, can affect the quality and condition of pearls etc, therefore, must be avoided. So last on first off!
Caring for your Pearls
To remove natural body oils, before putting your pearls away gently wipe them using a soft lint-free cloth. If dirty use a lightly dampened soft lint-free cloth. Always ensure your pearls are air dried before storing.
Never clean your pearls;
in ultrasonic cleaning machines
in solutions that contain ammonia or harsh detergents
using abrasive cleaners or rub pearls with abrasive cloths
Pearls should be stored separately as they can get scratched, therefore, don’t just store your pearls with other jewellery. Always put them back in their jewellery bag and ideally store them separately in their own slot in your jewellery box.
Caring for your Sterling Silver Jewellery
Open air and humidity encourages Sterling Silver to tarnish, therefore, avoid just leaving out your jewellery. To slow down the tarnishing process and reduce the risk of scratching against other jewellery, always put the pieces back in their jewellery bag and store in an air-tight cool dry place.
Sterling Silver, stored properly, can be worn often and with minimal cleaning required making it very easy to care for. Silver polishing cloths are impregnated with jewellery cleaner and are an excellent choice for cleaning your Sterling Silver jewellery and daily cleaning is recommended. These are inexpensive, widely available and very easy to use and it is a good idea to have one cleaning cloth for gold and one for silver.
