Ray’s Top Tips for Jewellery Care

  1. Remove your jewellery when doing physical work like gardening, housework & exercising to avoid scratching and damage.
  2. Have your jewellery professionally checked regularly (at least once a year) for wear & tear.
  3. Avoid harsh chemicals as they can damage your jewellery (chlorine bleach, pool chemicals & some detergents) as the chemicals can erode the finish of both the jewellery & some gemstones.
  4. Store your jewellery to prevent scratching, keep items separate in a jewellery box or store in their individual boxes.
  5. Get professional advice on the best way to clean your jewellery items, each gemstone and metals are cared for differently.
