It requires very little effort to keep your jewellery looking as beautiful as when it was new, so you can cherish it for years to come.

Care tips

  • Try to avoid contact with water, perfumes and lotions, particularly in the case of costume or fashion jewellery and pearls.
  • Chlorinated water can affect the settings of your jewellery, so be sure to avoid swimming. There is also chlorine present in tap water.
  • Keep your jewellery stored away safely and separated, ensuring tangling or tarnishing does not occur.
  • Keep chains fastened to help stop them getting tangled.
  • Regularly check your fine jewellery for damage and wear.
  • Gently rub gold and silver jewellery with a soft, clean cloth to clean and maximise the shine.
  • Diamond jewellery can be carefully cleaned with a soft brush and soapy water if you don't have any specific cleaning solutions to hand.
  • Check the instructions of ultrasonic cleaners before use, as they are not suitable for all gemstones. Pearls, opals and turquoise are particularly at risk.
  • Avoid getting threaded and beaded jewellery wet.
  • Make sure your pearl jewellery is the last thing you put on, after any make-up or perfume.
  • Gently wipe pearls with a soft cloth as soon as you take them off. A damp cloth can be used, but always allow pearls to ‘air’ dry before putting away.
  • Never use harsh detergents or abrasive cleaners or cloths on your pearls.
  • Do not wear pearls in bed or during strenuous activity.
  • Always store pearls separate from other jewellery to avoid scratches. Ideally store in a soft bag.
