How Should I Clean My Gold Jewellery?
Clean your jewellery carefully with a soft, non-abrasive and lint-free cloth or chamois; this helps maintain or bring back its shine.
What Should I Keep Away from My Jewellery?
Your jewellery is particularly susceptible to damage from the effects of chemicals present in perfume, hairspray, make-up, nail polish remover, body oils, sun tan lotion and deodorant.
Do not keep jewellery in direct sunlight as prolonged exposure to sunlight can cause many gemstones to fade and lose their colour.
Do not swim or shower while wearing gold jewellery, and remove rings when washing your hands. Chlorine, salt water and fresh water can damage precious metals and gemstones by dulling or eroding them. Gold is particularly susceptible to damage from chlorine, which can permanently damage or discolour them. Soapy water when bathing and showering can also leave a thin film, which makes the metal seem dull.
Some stones can also be quite porous (such as turquoise,coral and lapis lazuli), which is why you shouldn’t leave these kinds of stones immersed in water for too long. Liquids and oils can seep into the gems through the tiny cracks between the crystals, causing permanent discolouration and damage. In addition, porous gems should not be worn to a beach or other hot, extreme environments.
How Should I Clean and Protect My Diamond Jewellery?
Clean your diamonds with warm soapy liquid and a soft cloth, rinsing the stone and setting afterwards to ensure no soapy residue.
How Should I Clean and Protect My Opal Jewellery?
The opals used in our jewellery are a mix of doublet and triplets.
Avoid prolonged exposure to water and chemicals. This can cause damage to the opal. Use a soft, slightly damp cloth to gently clean your opal jewellery.
