Jewellery Cleaning and Care

It is important to take regular care of your precious fine jewellery. Follow some of our easy tips to ensure the beauty of your jewellery for generations to come.

1. Store jewellery separately. This helps to avoid scratches to precious metals and soft gemstones. You can store them in a jewellery box with separate compartments, or a lined container with dividers, or wrap each piece with a tissue or tissue paper.

2. Keep jewellery clean. Wipe your jewellery with a soft damp cloth after each time it is worn. This will help to remove makeup, perfumes, dust, perspiration and surface grime that can accumulate on a daily basis. Don’t forget to regularly come in-store for a deeper cleaning.

3. In-store Ultrasonic Cleaner. Our ultrasonic cleaner is very effective on gold and diamond jewellery and can easily be done in a few minutes. We offer your first piece of jewellery to be cleaned for free and then $20 for each item after that. At this time, we can also examine your jewellery to determine if any repairs or special maintenance procedures are needed.

4. Coloured gemstones storing. Coloured gemstones such as rubies, sapphires, emeralds should be stored away from direct light and excessive heat. Other gemstones including turquoise, lapis, coral, onyx and amber are naturally soft and porous and must not be soaked for longer than advised. Also, be careful with them as they can be scratched easily.

To Clean Coloured Gemstones:

  • Wipe jewellery with a soft damp cloth after wearing
  • For deeper cleaning, soak your jewellery for 2-3 minutes in a bowl of warm water with a few drops of mild liquid soap
  • Do not use detergents or ultrasonic cleaners.
  • Gently scrub jewellery with a soft facial or cosmetic brush.
  • Rinse in a bowl of clean water and air-dry thoroughly on a soft, absorbent cloth.

Special tips

  • Do not expose your coloured gemstones to sudden changes in temperature or extreme heat, as it may fracture the stone.
  • Avoid household cleaners and harsh chemicals like ammonia, chlorine and bleach.
  • Avoid shocks and knocks. Some gemstones like tanzanites and emeralds are very brittle and can fracture easily.
  • Do not expose coloured gemstone jewellery to chlorinated or salt water.

Pearls

Pearls are natural, soft gems created within mollusks in the sea or freshwater. These special gems require proper care to retain their beautiful luster and color over the years. Like softer gemstones, pearls can scratch easily, so use care to store them separate from other jewellery.

To Clean:

  • Wipe with a soft, damp cotton cloth each time pearl jewellery is worn to remove traces of perfume, perspiration or makeup.
  • For occasional cleaning, soak 2-3 minutes in a bowl of lukewarm (never hot) water.
  • Rinse and dry on a soft absorbent cloth.
  • Pearl strands must dry thoroughly prior to wearing as the damp silk thread attracts dirt and can easily stretch out.

Special tips

  • Do not spray on perfume or hairspray while wearing pearls as the chemical agents contained in these products may damage the delicate nacre of the pearl and cause pitting, dulling or yellowing.
  • Avoid household cleaners, detergents and harsh chemicals like ammonia, chlorine and bleach.
  • Do not use ultrasonic or steam cleaners.
  • Remove pearl jewellery before entering a chlorinated pool.
  • Have pearl strands restrung every 1-3 years depending upon the amount of wear.
  • Store pearls separately, wrapped in silk, soft cotton or a chamois. Keep away from excessive heat or direct sunlight. Avoid airtight plastic bags or containers, as this can dry out the natural moisture of the nacre and cause pearls to crack or discolor over time. 

Diamonds

The hardest of stones, diamonds derive their beauty from the way they refract, reflect and disperse light. The slightest bit of film from skin oil, soap or hand lotion will change a diamond’s refractive index and dull the diamond’s brilliance. Diamond rings worn every day should be cleaned often to keep them sparkling and bright. 

To Clean:

  • Soak in a bowl of warm water with a few drops of ammonia.
  • Using a soft toothbrush, gently scrub the entire piece, especially underneath the setting of your stone to dislodge any dirt.
  • Rinse in a bowl of clean water and dry. 

Special tips

  • Do not touch the surface of clean diamonds with your fingertips. Instead, handle jewellery by the edges to avoid leaving fingerprints.
  • Do not perform heavy work while wearing diamond jewellery. Diamonds are the hardest of stones but can still be chipped if hit the wrong way.
