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:
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.
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.
