Everyday Use and Care of Gemstone Jewellery

It is crucial to take care of your gemstone jewellery to maintain its longevity. Here are some tips to keep your jewellery looking great for years to come:

  • You should always remove your jewellery before engaging in any housework or manual labour. Household cleaners and hard labour can cause permanent damage to your gems.
  • It is important to remove your jewellery before swimming or showering. Chlorine, soaps, and water can cause wear and tear on your gemstones and settings, leading to long-term damage. Additionally, it’s advisable to avoid  wearing your jewellery while sleeping. Moving around while sleeping can put undue strain on your jewellery, causing it to become loose or even break. Hence, it’s best to take off your jewellery before you hit your bed.
  • It’s recommended to wait until your perfume and hair care products are dry before putting on your jewellery. This helps to prevent any damage to the stones and preserve the overall appearance of your jewellery.
  • It is recommended to store your jewellery in a dark place, away from sunlight, and to use a pouch, ziplock bag, or jewellery box. Sunlight can cause certain types of stones to fade, while humid air can cause silver to tarnish.

These simple steps will help you enjoy your gemstone jewellery for many years.

General Cleaning

If you own silver jewelry, you must be aware that it can tarnish quite easily, leaving your precious pieces looking black and dirty. To keep your silver shiny, you can take a gentle approach and polish it with a jewellery cloth. Alternatively, you can opt for standard silver polish to restore your silver’s natural shine.

When cleaning gemstones, it’s important to take care and use gentle methods. Avoid using polishes and tarnish removers as they can cause gems to become dull and fade. Instead, opt for a soft silver cloth to wipe over all gemstones. Some gemstones are more sensitive to getting wet than others, so keep them dry as much as possible.

It’s important to protect precious gems so they can sparkle and shine for years to come.
