How To Care For Your Jewellery

Jewellery Care Tips:

Fine jewellery can become a cherished heirloom if it’s properly cared for.

Timeworn settings can cause the loss of gemstones and loosened clasps can compromise the security of your jewellery. A clean diamond not only reflects light better but looks bigger than one that’s been dulled by skin oil, soap and dirt etc.

As part of Caratell’s after-sales-service, we encourage our clients to bring in their jewellery for regular professional cleaning and servicing.

Other care tips are as follows:

Don’t

  • Wear your jewellery to do sports, or while performing chores. Even diamonds can chip when knocked along their grain.

  • Wear your jewellery to bed. This may cause damages like tangles that weaken certain chains and create scratches on the gold.

  • Try to clean your jewellery in hot water as some gemstones can be ruined.

  • Clean Pearls, Coral, Malachite, Lapis Lazuli, Turquoise or Ivory / Bone in jewelley cleaner / chemicals. These organic materials can suffer from permanent and irreversible damage from such chemicals.

Do

  • Send your jewellery for regular cleaning and servicing. Our master setter will check your jewellery for loose settings, clasps and signs of wear and tear en-site.

  • Avoid impact against surfaces, extreme temperature changes and contact with perfumes, cosmetics and household chemicals as much as possible.

  • Wipe your jewellery with a clean, soft cloth without soap, chemical or abrasives after use.

  • Pay special attention to the care for your pearls. Gently wipe them with a soft, clean cloth after each wear to remove oils and dirt from the nacre of the pearls.

  • Remember that when it comes to jewellery, its always “last on before you step out of home, and first off when you get home”.

  • Store your pieces of jewellery separately in individual bags to prevent unnecessary scratches and tangles not just to the gold and chains, but also damages to gems.
