WEARING JEWELRY
Caring for your jewelry begins with proper wearing of jewelry which means when
to wear and when to take off your jewelry. Always remember this golden rule: it

ALWAYS
wear jewellery only after applying makeup, perfume and
hairspray.

chemicals that can damage jewelry. Putting jewelry on after
applying these materials will limit exposure to jewelry and
any potential damage.

ALWAYS
give your jewelry a rest
Most jewelry and especially fashion jewelry are not meant to
be worn every day.
If you wear the same pieces of jewelry every day,
discoloration will occur soon.

ALWAYS
handle gemstones and pearls as little as possible.

NEVER
go to sleep with fashion jewelry on
IIt is a sure way to damage, break and accelerate its rate of
discolouration. Wearing jewellery to bed could also colour,
injure and scratch your skin.

NEVER
wear jewelry during manual labour
Remove your jewelry before doing your household chores.
Removing your jewelry will prevent it from getting physically
damaged especially from chemicals found in cleaning fluids.
Harsh solvents used in cleaning are harmful to all kinds of
jewelry, particularly pearls.

NEVER
wear jewelry during swimming
Chlorinated water will react with metals found in fashion
jewelry, causing colour changes and even structural
damage. Remove your jewelry before swimming or entering
a spa

Cleaning
Jewelry
The key to make your jewelry last

08

CLEANING JEWELRY
Keeping jewelry clean and looking good require regular effort. This may be a little
bit burdensome but it is they key to making your jewelry last.

ALWAYS
follow instructions
Follow the instructions on the label or box. The best care
for that particular jewelry usually is given by the jewelry
maker himself.

ALWAYS
inspect your jewelry regularly
Prevention is always better than cure. Having your jewelry
professionally cleaned and inspecting each of them for any
possible problem will prevent further damage and keep all
your jewelry in good condition for years to come.

ALWAYS
use jewelry polishing cloths
Professional cloths are the best way for polishing your
jewelry. Avoid using tissue or paper towels. Fibers in these
products can cause scratches.

bit burdensome but it is they key to making your jewelry last.

ALWAYS
clean your jewelry with care
It is always good to clean your jewelry regularly but you
have to be careful. Always use commercial cleaners from a
jeweler. If you use some chemicals like bleach, your jewelry
can be destroyed.

NEVER
clean damaged jewelry
Cleaning damaged, cracked or broken jewelry is likely to
worse the problem. Set aside your damaged jewelry and
send it for repair as soon as possible.

NEVER
clean in an unsecured location
Do not clean an in unsecured place, for example, at the rim
of a sink where a piece may slip down the drain.

Keeping jewelry clean and looking good requires regular effort, this may be a
little bit of a burden but it is they key to make your jewelry last.

NEVER
shower with your jewelry
Soap can cause your jewelry to appear dull by causing a
film to form over it. By preventing this film to form, you do
not need to send your jewelry for servicing as often.

NEVER
use toothpaste or other abrasives to clean metals or stones
Some people recommend toothpaste as a cleaner, but this is
not an accepted practice by us. The abrasives in toothpaste
can damage the surface of the metal. Toothpaste will also
abrade the surface of amber, lapis, turquoise and other soft
stones.

NEVER
use ultrasonic cleaners
These cleaners use sound waves to cause vibrations, and
these vibrations shake off the dirt on your jewelry but this
method of cleaning can cause serious damage to your
jewelry. Fragile stones like emeralds can be enlarged by
vibrations, making it less attractive and bringing its value
down. Only use ultrasonic cleaners if your jeweler
guarantees you that it will not damage your jewelry.

Storing
Jewelry
Storing your jewelry to keep it safe
and in good condition for many years
to come is a must for everyone

12

STORING JEWELRY
Learning how to store your jewelry to keep it safe and remain in good condition
for many years to come is a must for everyone. When your jewelry is stored and
organized properly, picking out accessories to match your outfit is much easier and
saves time. 

ALWAYS
keep jewelry clean and dry
Metals like brass, copper or bronze will oxidize and a
bluish green encrustation can form on their surface,
causing them to change color. Silver and gold platings
could chip.
Humidity can also damage jewelry. Jewelry should be
stored in a dry place all the time.

ALWAYS
use anti-tarnish strips.
This should be used in all jewelry storage. The strips should
be replaced every nine months to ensure proper safety for
the jewelry.
.

ALWAYS
store necklaces hanging.
This will prevents kinking. In a drawer, necklaces have a
tendency to get tangled.

organized properly, picking out accessories to match your outfit is much easier and
saves time. .

ALWAYS
use a jewelry box
Use a jewelry box with a soft, lined interior that can prevent
the jewelry from being damaged and will limit exposure to
air. Exposure to air causes jewelry to tarnish, leaving dark
stains on the metal surfaces. Jewelry boxex also have
multiple compartments for all storing different types of
jewelry, This will bring us to the next topic.

NEVER
store your jewelry together
Storing all types of jewelry in one compartment increases the
chance of entanglement which can cause damage and scratches.
Harder materials can scratch softer materials. Diamonds can
scratch softer stones as well as gold and even platinum. For this
reason, it is important to store your jewelry individually so the
pieces do not come into contact with each other.

NEVER
store your jewelry in direct sunlight
Sunlight can cause damage over time. Jewelry should be
stored at room temperature. Some metals and gemstones
may even change colors and become lighter after long
exposures to excessive heat.

Repairing
Jewelry
If your jewelry is in need of repair,
bring it to the jewelers as soon as
possible.

15

REPAIRING JEWELRY
Do not repair your own jewelry unless you are professionally trained. If your
jewelry is in need of repair, take it to the jewelers as soon as possible. If your
jewelry is broken and the longer you wait,  the more likely you might lose those
small broken pieces of jewelry. 

ALWAYS
prevent damage to your jewelry
This is the best way to prevent repairs. You can perform a
simple inspection every three months to ensure that your
jewelry is in good condition. This can prevent a small
problem from becoming a big one. You should also
schedule cleaning your jewelry every year and during this
cleaning, ask your jewelers to check for wear and tear so
that they can fix them before it become a serious problem.

ALWAYS
Look for reviews and referrals
Read reviews of the work done by jewelers before deciding
on which jeweler to repair your jewelry. Get to know about a
jewel repairer’s professionalism by asking him questions
before submitting your jewelry to him..

ALWAYS
Get a proper repair quote
When a jeweler shows you the breakdown of the repair
costs, it shows that they have made an effort to be
transparent in their work.

REPAIRING JEWELRY
Do not repair your own jewelry unless you are professionally trained. If your
jewelry is in need of repair, take it to the jewelers as soon as possible. If your
jewelry is broken and the longer you wait,  the more likely you might lose those
small broken pieces of jewelry. 

ALWAYS
Observe the jewelry take-in procedures
Usually when a jeweler assesses your jewelry for repair,
they will document the state of your jewelry and how the
repairs will be done by describing and drawing to ensure
that the repair will be a success.

ALWAYS
Inspect your jewelry when you collect it
Ensure that the jewelry you collect is the one you sent for
repair. Check that the repairs have been done to your
satisfaction. Check if your jewelry has been cleaned and
polished. All professional jewelers will clean and polish
jewelry after they have repaired them.

NEVER
Repair jewelry yourself
If you are not trained, it is best to avoid repairing jewelry
yourself, especially fine jewelry. You might destroy the
jewelry or you might even injure yourself.

Shipping
Jewelry
Steps to take to ensure your jewelry
have a safe trip

18

SHIPPING JEWELRY
Shipping jewelry can be a great deal of concern due to its fragility and high-value.
There are many guides out there for this. Here is our guide on how to ensure that
your jewelry have a safe and sound journey. 

STEP ONE
Bubble wrap the jewelry
In fact, wrap it in bubble wrap several times until it’s shape
is not seen.

STEP TWO
Put the wrapped jewelry in a small box
Fill the box with stuffing to protect the jewelry. If you are
mailing expensive jewelry put the small box in another
bigger box. Larger boxes are less likely to be lost in the
transit and are less likely to be stolen.
.

STEP THREE
Check for movements
There should not be any movement in the box. If there is, it is
a sign that the item will either bump into another item in the
same box or it can be smashed during delivery.

times at least.

STEP SIX

Request a signature upon delivery. Insure the jewelry if it is
