• Jewellery should be the last thing you put on and the first thing you take off. Wear your jewellery after getting dressed (including make-up, hair, and perfume) and remove it before getting undressed and starting your beauty routine. • Remove your jewellery before going to sleep, practicing any sport, washing your hands, or using corrosive products. Avoid contact with fragrance, alcohol, cosmetics, ammonia, chlorine, and keep your pieces away from intense sources of heat and extreme temperature changes. • Prevent damage or loss of your jewels by storing them individually in their original box or pouch after wearing them; contact with other jewellery pieces could cause scratches. Chains should be closed and laid flat to avoid them becoming tangled; if they do, please contact us for assistance. When carrying jewellery, use a protective jewellery pouch. • If your jewellery suffers a shock or hit, the stone setting may need to be checked. Avoid forcing clasps, joints, and metal frames, and be sure to check that the clasp and safety latch close properly. If you have any concerns, you should not wear your jewel until you have had it checked by one of our experts. In the meantime, you can check it yourself either by: 1. shaking the piece of jewellery close to your ear: if you hear a slight noise, this means that the stones are no longer perfectly secured; or, 2. by rubbing the piece of jewellery against a thin cloth: if the cloth catches, this means that the prongs have moved. • Keep your jewellery away from intense sources of heat and extreme temperature changes as this shock could permanently damage delicate stones. • Earring backs should be put on gently as forcing them onto the post may result in it becoming stuck, weakened, or bent. Flexible hoop earrings should also be put on gently to avoid permanent damage. • Any rings with delicate designs, moving pieces, or gems all around should be worn on occasion and with due care. Avoid impact, heavy lifting, or repetitive metal-to-metal contact to maintain the longevity of your jewel and reduce the frequency of servicing.

By following these guidelines, you'll be able to preserve the beauty and value of your cherished jewellery pieces for generations to come.


Remember that each gemstone and metal requires unique care, so refer back to this guide whenever you need assistance.


We recommend that you contact us if you have any doubts, questions, or concerns and if you want to have the jewel checked professionally, cleaned, and restored. Your satisfaction and the longevity of your jewellery are our top priorities.
