Jewellery is one of our most intimate & cherished accessories. An elegant jewellery piece makes an individual statement. Understanding how to care for your treasured jewellery can make a world of difference in maintaining its beauty and keeping its heirloom quality sparkling for generations to come.

By following the simple tips on taking care of jewellery, you can preserve it for a longer period and also save on unnecessary expense to repair it.

1. Caring for your jewelry starts with proper wear - That means knowing when to put your jewelry on – and when to take it off.

2. Remove Jewelry During Tasks – When performing manual tasks, remove your jewelry to prevent physical damage or exposure to chemicals or cleaning fluids.

3. Put Jewelry On After Applying Makeup – Cosmetics, hairspray, perfumes and lotion can contain chemicals that can often damage jewelry. Putting jewelry on after applying these materials will limit exposure to jewelry and any potential damage. Also, handle gems and pearls as little as possible, since skin oil can build up over time and dull their appearance.

4. Don't Wear Jewelry In Swimming Pools and Spas – Chlorinated water can react with the metals found in jewelry causing color changes and even structural damage. As a result it's a good idea to remove jewelry before entering the pool or spa.

5. Remove Your Jewelry Before Bathing - Remove all jewelry before showering or cleaning. Soap can cause a film to form, making it appear dull and dingy.

6. Use Jewelry Polishing Cloths for Best Results - Polish silver or gold jewellery with a jewelry polishing cloth for best results. You can use a svelte, but the professional cloths are the best. Use of tissue or paper towels can cause scratches because of fibers in these products.

7. A regular professional cleaning is a good idea - Not only does it keep your jewelry looking its best, it also ensures that a trained professional takes a look at it at least once a year, allowing for the earliest possible detection of wear or damage. Between professional cleanings, however, there are some things you can do to keep your jewelry clean.

8. Take your diamond jewellery to a professional jeweller - It is highly recommended to take your diamond jewellery to a professional jeweller every 6 months or 1 year (depending upon how often you use them) to have its settings checked and timely repair done.

9. Clean your diamond jewellery - Clean your diamond jewellery regularly using jewellery cleaner, a mix of ammonia and water, or a mild detergent. Dip the jewellery into the solution and use a soft brush to wipe dust or dirt from under the setting. Avoid touching your clean diamonds with your fingers. Handle clean jewellery by its edges.

Wash pearls in very mild, soapy water and nothing else or better still rinse lint-free cloth in lukewarm water and clean the pearls. It's also a good idea to bring your pearls in for restringing every couple of years, especially if you wear them often. Keep pearls away from household chemicals like hair spray, makeup and perfumes which can dull their luster over time and cause spots and blotches.

Most colored gemstones should be cleaned using warm water, mild soap (no detergents), and a soft brush. Lint-free cloth can also be used to clean and dry.

10. Storing of Jewellery - After wearing, wipe your precious gemstone jewellery thoroughly with a clean soft, slightly damp cloth. This will enhance the gemstone's luster and ensure that your jewellery is clean before storage. Keep every piece of diamond jewellery separately in a box lined with velvet. This will protect it from dirt. If you want to keep more than one jewellery item in a box, wrap smaller pieces in tissue paper or keep them in plastic zip locks to guard against scratches. Handle your diamonds sparingly as your finger provides enough oil from your skin to alter the way your diamond looks. Store gemstone pieces individually in soft pouches or plastic zip locks.
