Always use make-up, lotions, cosmetics, perfume, hair spray, soap before wearing your jewellery.
Remove any perspiration or oil gently with a soft cloth after using your jewellery, before storing.
Use fabric lined boxes to store your jewellery. Wrap each piece individually in tissue or cotton to prevent scratches.
Do not wear jewellery while doing physical activities like exercise, swimming, gardening, housekeeping and other household chores.
Never expose jewellery to household cleaning products.
Never wear jewellery when swimming in a chemically treated swimming pool or while soaking in a spa.
Cleaning your jewellery
Establish a daily care routine of washing your jewellery in very mild soapy water after wearing it at the end of the day.
Always wash in a secure location, never at the rim of the sink, where your piece may slip down the drain.
Use only a soft brush or cloth to clean, never hard objects to remove dust or particles.
Jewellery which has become too soiled should be cleaned professionally.
Clean your jewellery regularly. Sweat, soaps, lotions, skin oils make diamonds and gemstones appear dull.
Diamond jewellery should be cleaned with a soft brush dipped in warm and mild detergent, rinsed under running water.
Pearl jewellery should never be exposed to chemicals, solvents or ultrasonics without knowing their specific cleaning requirements.
Tips for long life
Keep the certificate or laboratory reports separately, in a safe location for security.
Atleast once a year get your jewellery cleaned and checked by a professional for worn moldings, loose prongs and general conditions.
Around every two years, get white gold re-plated, platinum re-ppolished and prongs re-tipped, to maintain original condition.
Your daily wear jewellery should be carefully selected, it should be in harmony with your lifestyle and schedule of activities.
Treat each piece as a family heirloom, as someday it just may be.
