Your jewellery says a lot about you, therefore it is important to maintain it as best as possible. Below are some practical guidelines for taking care of your jewellery.
- Regularly cleaning your jewellery is important: when you wash your hands, don’t be afraid of keeping your rings on. You can also soap them up while they are on your fingers and rinse them with water to eliminate any surface impurities.
- Cleaning jewellery yourself is easy: just submerge it in lukewarm soapy water and brush it delicately with a soft brush, then rinse carefully and dry with a soft cloth.
- Avoid applying perfume or creams when wearing jewellery: take them off before applying perfume or cream, and then put them back on. These substances may leave a corrosive residue that, with time, may build up and prematurely damage your jewellery.
- Pearls and a few other precious stones can be very delicate: it is advised to avoid exposing them to frequently used detergents.
- Gold may be permanently damaged if exposed to products containing mercury.
- It is better not to wear more than one ring on a finger.
- Jewellery is prone to scratches when in contact with similar items; keep them separate or keep them in a protective covering.
- Keep necklaces clasped and lying flat in order to avoid any annoying knots.
