Checking your jewellery

Checking your jewellery

How do I maintain and protect my jewellery?

It is so important to have your jewellery checked regularly to ensure it is in perfect condition. Jewellery does wear down overtime, especially if worn everyday and checking the settings yearly is strongly recommended to ensure stones are not lost. Also, take it into your local, quality jeweller for professional cleaning and checking.

How to turn my jewellery into an heirloom piece?

We often get clients that want to take their jewellery and turn it into something they can hand down. There are so many great options for helping you to preserve and protect your family pieces of jewellery. One is simply to keep it in good repair and condition. Another is to incorporate it into a new piece that will stand the test of time. Talk to a jeweller that specialises in hand crafted, quality jewellery to see what kind of jewellery re-imagining would work for you.

Everyday jewellery maintenance

Not every piece of jewellery has to be an heirloom piece to be worth preserving – sometimes it’s simply a sentimental piece of jewellery or something you love. In these cases, there are a number of things you can do at home to help keep your favourite jewellery items in good nick. Use warm, soapy water (a little bit of Morning Fresh will do) and a VERY soft toothbrush. Rinse, and repeat weekly (depending on how much you wear the jewellery!) This can also depend on the gemstone or metal (for example, we would not recommend using soap on your emeralds), so don’t hesitate to contact us and ask!
