1, Keep your jewelry away from chemicals. Exposure to chemicals can damage or discolor precious metals – gold, silver, and platinum – and may harm some colored gems.
2, Never place pressure directly on the stones themselves. Pushing rings on or pulling bracelets by their stones can loosen the fastenings which can quickly lead to lost stones.
3, To ensure your jewelry remains scratch and impact-free it should be stored just as you bought it.
4, Temperature, dryness, and sunlight also play a part in proper jewelry storage. Sunlight can discolor or damage certain gems.
5, Radical temperature changes, particularly when cleaning, should be avoided at all costs. A swift change from cold to hot can make some stones brittle and more liable to crack or break.
6, Jewelry should never be tossed into a drawer or on top of a dresser − that’s asking for scratches and damaged gems. All our jewelry pieces come in a well-crafted box with a soft pouch included, which is a perfect place to keep your piece.
7, Protect your jewelry pieces from scratches or other impact damage by padding them in a Separate Jewelry Box. Jewelry boxes that feature individually padded slots for rings and posts for hanging necklaces and bracelets are also ideal.
8, If you do want to keep your jewelry together in a box, just make sure the pieces can’t touch, or they may scratch each other. Pay particular attention to this if traveling with your jewelry.
9, Don’t use harsh cleaning chemicals such as bleach or anything that contains ammonia, as many gems will react badly with them. Never commit to a cleaning method until you are sure it is safe for your gem.
10, Jewelry can be the longest-lasting part of your wardrobe, provided you wear it responsibly. When in doubt, remember the golden rule: last to put on and first to take off.
