TAKING CARE OF YOUR JEWELLERY

At our jewellery atelier, we understand the sentimental and financial value of your treasured pieces. Like all beloved possessions, frequently worn jewellery will inevitably show signs of wear over time. Proper care is essential to maintain its allure and durability. Here are some essential guidelines to keep your jewellery in impeccable condition.

General Care Guidelines

Diamonds, while among the hardest substances, still require gentle handling to prevent chips or scratches. Handle delicate pieces with care, as fine rings need more cautious treatment compared to sturdier designs. It’s also crucial to avoid exposing your jewellery to soaps, sanitizers, and lotions, as these can damage stones and settings. Remember, jewellery does not maintain itself; regular cleaning and careful handling are essential to keep it looking its best.

When to Remove Your Jewellery

To prevent unnecessary damage, remove your jewellery during activities such as sleeping, washing, swimming, exercising, performing household chores, nursing, or handling pets and children. Removing your jewellery during any potentially stressful activities will help avoid undue strain or damage.

Consider Your Lifestyle

Different jewellery styles and settings require varied levels of care and maintenance. When commissioning a bespoke piece, be honest about your lifestyle to ensure the design is both beautiful and practical for everyday wear. For engagement or wedding rings, consider how the design fits into your daily life. If unsure, consult with us for honest advice. Remember, a ring should be more than just attractive; it must withstand daily activities to last a lifetime.

Post-Purchase Care

If you already own our jewellery, we hope these tips will help you cherish and maintain your pieces for years. Each piece is handcrafted with love and care, and we want you to enjoy them as much as we enjoyed creating them.

Mindful Wearing

Be cautious with heavily textured pieces or those with sharp edges, especially around children or pets. Prong settings and diamond edges can scratch surfaces, so exercise care. Jewellery can catch on clothing and surfaces, so to minimize this risk, put on jewellery last when dressing and remove it first when undressing. Avoid pulling at jewellery if it snags, as this can distort settings and loosen stones.

 

Handling Snagged Jewellery

If snagging occurs, gently remove the jewellery and carefully untangle it from the material to prevent damage to both the jewellery and the fabric. If stones become dislodged, contact us. We are here to assist with repairs for a small fee.

Avoid Harsh Chemicals

Chemicals found in beauty and household products, such as soaps, detergents, sanitizers, perfumes, and lotions, can cause metal discoloration and erode delicate prongs over time. Avoid contact with these substances to maintain the integrity of your jewellery. A professional re-polish can usually restore discolored pieces, but prevention is always best.

Mindfulness and care go a long way in preserving the beauty and longevity of your jewellery. We cannot accept responsibility for damage resulting from improper use, so please take reasonable precautions to avoid unwanted accidents. By following these guidelines, you can ensure your cherished pieces remain as stunning as the day you acquired them.
