Caring for your Jewellery

Caring for your jewellery

Wearing Jewellery

• Jewellery should not be worn while working in the house or garden, during sports and while swimming (in either salty or chlorinated water)

• Jewellery should be removed before going to bed, bathing or showering.

• Perfume and hairspray can remove the sheen and brilliance of jewellery. For this reason, it is advisable to use perfume, hairspray and other cosmetics and wait for a couple of minutes before putting on your jewellery.

• We recommend that your jewellery is the last thing you put on and the first thing you take off.

• Pearls are absorbent and need to maintain a certain level of moisture to retain their bright colour and lustre – the best way to do this is to simply wear them!

• We advise extra caution wearing Pearl Rings. Pearls can only be set using Pearl glue on a metal post, a sharp blow could break the post or knock the pearl off.

Storing Jewellery

• Ideally, each item of jewellery should be stored in a separate, air-tight pouch in a dark place. fabulous always have spare pouches to keep jewellery in.

• Did you know that the silicon pouches found inside shoes and handbags are there to remove moisture? These are great to store with your jewellery to prevent tarnishing.

• Pearls should be kept in a soft cloth to prevent scratches.

Cleaning Jewellery

• Soap, Crème and makeup residues can usually be removed using a silver polishing cloth or with a soft brush in diluted soapy water.

• Alternatively some jewellery can be cleaned with dipping baths or an ultrasonic device.

• Oxidisation is a semi-permanent finish. The oxidised (blackened) items of jewellery should not be cleaned using a silver dip, as this will remove the oxidised finish. When using a silver cleaning cloth, focus on polishing the shiny, silver areas to prevent removing any of the oxidised finish.

• Many semi-precious stones used in jewellery, such as imitation pearls, cultivated fresh water pearls, lapis lazuli, turquoise, mother-of- pearl, hematite, coral, agate or marcasite are also not suitable for cleaning in water or a dipping bath.

• In the case of leather use leather care creams and only the silver parts should be cleaned using a polishing cloth.
