Jewellery Care Tips


  • Apply lotion, cosmetics, hairspray and perfume before dressing in jewellery.
  • When undressing, wipe each piece with a clean soft cloth to remove oils and perspiration.
  • Store in a fabric-lined box, separately or individually-wrapped in tissue to prevent scratches.

Tips for Cleaning

  • Clean in a secure location, not the rim of a sink where a piece may slip down the drain.
  • Use only a soft brush, never sharp or hard objects, to remove dirt or particles.
  • Clean your jewellery often; lotions, soaps and skin oils alter the optical properties of diamonds and gemstones, causing them to look dull.
  • Clean diamond jewellery with a soft brush dipped in warm water and mild detergent; rinse under running water.
  • Never expose pearl jewellery to chemicals or solvents and store each piece in a soft bag.
  • Don't expose colored gemstones to chemicals, solvents or ultrasonic’s without knowing their specific cleaning requirements.


  • Never wear jewellery when doing physical work such as housekeeping, gardening or exercise.
  • Never expose jewellery to household cleaning products.
  • Never expose jewellery to chlorine swimming pools or hot tubs.

Tips for Long Life

  • Keep your Laboratory Reports in a safe location, separate from jewellery pieces, for security.
  • Have your jewellery cleaned and checked by a professional for worn mountings, loose prongs and general condition at least once per year.
  • Have white gold re-plated, platinum re-polished and prongs re-tipped as necessary to maintain original condition (generally every 24 months or so).
  • Have frequently-worn pearls restrung as necessary, with a knot between each pearl to prevent loss if the string breaks.
  • Some colored gemstones should not be exposed to sudden temperature changes; know your pieces and their needs.
  • Select daily-wear jewellery that is in harmony with your lifestyle and schedule of activities.
  • Treat each piece as if it were a family heirloom, for someday it may be.
