How To Care For Your Jewellery
If you look after your jewellery, it will last you a long time. The advise below will guide you on how to do this.
Before you start doing any work where you might subject your jewellery to chemicals take off your jewellery and put it somewhere safe. Everyday wear is usually safe but chemicals can a have an affect particularly on gemstones, especially softer ones like amber.
At night, take your jewellery off and gently wipe your jewellery with a soft cloth to remove excess dirt and oil. If allowed to build up on the surface of gems, these will dull the brilliance of faceted stones.
Put your jewellery on after you apply your makeup, perfume, and hairspray. The chemicals contained in these products will affect most gemstones over time by ruining surface appearance.
Once a year, have your rings professionally cleaned. The jeweller will check for loose settings and put the original sparkle back into your favourite jewellery.
