Jewelry Care

How to take care of your jewelry?
The longevity of your jewelry depends on how you take care of it.
  • Do not wear your jewelry during swimming or taking a bath.
  • Do not allow your jewelry to come into contact with your lotions, perfumes or makeups.

How to clean rhodium plated metal.
Clean it with the soft cloth. Though rhodium is a precious metal, time rubs it out, so it’s important to be careful when cleaning it.

How to Take Care of Your Swarovski Jewelry
The easiest and most convenient way is to use baby wipes to restore the shine of your Swarovski jewelry.
Wipe it a couple of times before you use a dry and clean cloth or tissue to dry it off. One important thing to note is that if you are using a tissue, make sure that you do not use those which contain lotion.

How to take care of your pearls.
Use a dry, soft cloth, or, if necessary, a slightly damp cloth. Pearls which have developed a film from lotions or makeup can be cleaned with a solution of gentle soap and water placed on a soft cloth. Whenever your pearls come in contact with water, either through the cleaning process or otherwise, be sure to let them air dry before putting them away.

Caution : never use solutions that contain ammonia or harsh detergents to clean your pearls as it can damage or discolour them.

How to store the jewelry
  • All the jewelry should be kept in closed jewelry boxes or zip lock bags after wiping dry with a soft cloth.
  • Keep away from heat and direct sunlight.
  • Never store your jewelry in the bathroom (esp. silver jewelry) because all the metals and stones are afraid of damp.
