Taking care of our fine jewellery is essential if we want it to last a lifetime, and more. Discover below some top tips that will help to keep it in immaculate condition.


  • When not worn, keep jewellery in a clean, dry, and cool place and away from direct sunlight to prevent fading or discolouration.
  • Use individual soft pouches, jewellery boxes, or compartments to prevent pieces from scratching or tangling with each other.


  • Clean jewellery regularly to remove dirt and oils that can dull its appearance.
  • Use a mild, non-abrasive jewellery cleaner or warm, soapy water. Soak for around 20 minutes and gently scrub with a soft toothbrush or a specialised jewellery cleaning brush.
  • Rinse thoroughly and pat dry with a soft, lint-free cloth.
  • Avoid using harsh chemicals or abrasive materials that can damage gemstones and metals.

Avoid Contact with Chemicals

  • Remove jewellery before applying cosmetics, perfumes, lotions, and hairsprays as these can damage the surface of gemstones and metals.
  • Chlorine can be particularly damaging to metals and gemstones, causing discolouration, so always remove jewellery before swimming in pools or hot tubs.

Be Gentle

  • When handling jewellery, be gentle to avoid bending, scratching, or breaking delicate components.
  • Put on jewellery once dressed to avoid it getting caught on clothing.

Professional Cleaning and Maintenance

  • Periodically, have jewellery professionally cleaned and inspected by a jeweller. They can check for loose stones and perform any necessary maintenance or repairs.


  • Diamonds are relatively durable however take care not to dislodge the stones, especially if they are knocked against other hard materials.
  • Keep free from oils and dirt by cleaning regularly.

Gold and Silver

  • Gold and silver jewellery can tarnish over time. Use a polishing cloth or a specialised jewellery cleaner to restore their shine.


  • Avoid exposing pearls to excessive moisture, which can weaken their lustre and turn dull.
  • Clean with a soft, damp cloth and store in a separate pouch or box to prevent scratches. Avoid contact with sharp surfaces.
