How should I care for my jewelry?
Dust, pollution, cosmetics and perfumes all conspire to cloud the brilliance of a gemstone and dull the surface of gold, gold vermeil and sterling silver. We suggest that you take the time to properly store and care for your jewelry. We recommend applying perfume or other sprayed substances before and away from your jewelry. Jewelry should always be removed prior to showering.
In general, to preserve the life of your jewelry, we recommend periodic cleanings:
• in warm, mild soapy water with a soft cloth or an old soft toothbrush.
• After cleaning make sure the jewelry has been thoroughly dried (GENTLY pat dry) before storing or wearing. Store in a jewelry box or plastic bag.
• As a rule of thumb, avoid exposure to household cleaners, chlorine (hot-tubs, swimming pools) cosmetics, perfumes, hair products, perspiration, and oils as they may alter the color and stability of the stones.
• Protecting your stones from the elements (sunlight, prolonged exposure to water, heat, and drastic temperature changes) will also help prevent damage and/or discoloration.
• Organic gems such as pearls and coral should be wiped clean with a damp (not wet) cloth as water may alter the stone’s appearance.
• Jasper, Larimar, and Turquoise should be cleaned with a soft completely dry cloth as any water contact may damage the stone.
• Stones such as Kyanite, Opal, and Rhodochrosite are susceptible to thermal shock so any cleaning should be conducted with room temperature soapy water.
Please see the stone section for precise care instruction of each type of stone.
