Jewellery Care

A beautiful jewellery piece can be valuable in both sentimental and monetary terms. It is therefore important to take good care of your jewellery, including the stones and the metal.

Diamond Care

Diamonds may be the hardest material known to man but donít believe your diamond is indestructible. Special care and attention is needed if you want to avoid damage and keep them looking their best.

Firstly make sure you have a secure and protective setting on the ring that doesnít leave the stone vulnerable to knocks, even though only a very hard blow will chip your diamond. Secondly be aware that day-to-day wear will eventually lead to smudging and a dulling of the surface.

Cleaning your diamond on a regular basis will bring it back to its sparkly best. You can do this at home with a solution of one part ammonia and six parts water. Gently scrub the stone with a soft bristle brush (an old tooth brush will do) to remove traces of dirt and household chemicals but be careful not to scratch the metal. Professional jewellers will clean the entire ring and check for any wear and tear to the setting. To be safe take your ring to a jeweller every six to twelve months for a full MOT.

When itís not being worn, your diamond jewellery should be stored separately to avoid being dulled or scratched by your other jewels.

General Care

Below are some guidelines about the best ways to protect your jewellery:

  • Always try to protect your jewellery from sharp blows, scratches, chemicals, sunlight and extremes of temperature.
  • When not being worn keep your jewels separate from each other in a special lined box or pouch.
  • Avoid swimming in chlorinated pools whilst wearing your jewellery
  • Keep a supply of jewellery cleaning products at home and use them often.
  • Take your very best pieces to a professional jeweller for regular cleaning and checking for damage.
  • Gold is a very soft metal and is especially susceptible to scratches and dents, so treat it with care.†
  • Sterling silver can easily be cleaned with a soft cotton cloth or a silver dip solution.
  • Storing your silver in a sealable plastic bag will reduce tarnish.
  • Jewellery with stones should be soaked in warm soapy water and then cleaned with a soft brush.
