Jewelry Care Tips

In addition to proper cleaning and storage, there are a few extra things to remember when it comes to protecting your jewelry.


Avoid Chemicals

Both metal and germstones can be demaged if they come into contact with harsh chemicals. While some products to avoid are obvious such as bleach or chlorine, you should also have caution with the direct contact of skin care products such as sunscreen, lotion and perfume.


Avoid Direct Sunlight

Our skin isn't the only thing we want to protect from UV rays. Too much exposure to sunlight can dull the color in germstones.


Avoid Wearing Jewelry to the Gym or Spa

Because these two places are chock-full of many of the hazards we've mentioned – moisture, skin care products and chlorine – it's best to leave your fine jewelry at home when you're headed out for a workout os spa day.


Insure Your Jewelry

No matter how hard you try to protect your jewelry, there's always the risk of damage. Consider getting valuable pieces insured in order to provide peace of mind.
