Storing your jewellery
- Store jewellery in a dry jewellery box or cotton bag to protect its details from wear and scratching.
- Do not overcrowd your jewellery box or pouch, this may lead to scratching a stone or bending a fragile piece.
- Avoid sleeping with your jewellery.
- Remove your jewellery before taking a shower or swimming, residues from soap and chlorine will affect their luster.
- Spray perfume, hairspray and apply lotions before you put on your jewellery, not after.
- Avoid working out with your jewellery, sweat is acidic and does affect the colour of precious metals and stones.
- Do not leave your wood jewellery in your car, in direct sunlight or extreme temperatures.
- Wood and ebony jewellery should not be immersed in water or kept in high humidity, blot dry immediately if it gets wet.
- Avoid the use of chemical products while wearing your jewellery.
- Gemstones vary in their hardness index. Keep gemstones, pearls and crystals separated to avoid scratching and wear.
- Precious and semi-precious stones are fragile natural materials and are easily scratched and affected by chemicals. For this reason precious stone jewellery should be gently cleaned using only a soft cloth and tepid water.
- Genuine pearls are tiny natural beauties that are grown from living organisms. Mother-of-pearl in a vast number of layers has formed over time, making a pearl something very special, but also a fragile natural product. Any kind of trauma or contact with hard surfaces should be avoided in order not to scratch or knock off one or several layers of mother-of-pearl. Store them separated to preserve their luster for years.
