At Powells Jewellery, we understand that your jewellery isn't just an accessory; it's an investment and a keeper of cherished memories. We're here to help you ensure that your pieces retain their allure for years to come. Whether you're caring for a diamond engagement ring, a beloved pearl necklace, or a delicate gold bracelet, our guide will empower you to care for your jewellery with confidence.
We recommend periodic professional check-ups for your jewellery to detect any signs of damage or wear. In the meantime, here are some tips to ensure your treasures stay in excellent condition:
Remove your jewellery before engaging in activities that might pose a risk of scratching, knocking, or damage. When in doubt, it's best to take it off and keep it safe.
For a good night's sleep, bid your jewellery adieu before bedtime.
Keep your jewellery well clear of chemicals, especially chlorine. In case of accidental contact with chemicals, promptly rinse your piece in water.
Apply lotions and perfumes, and finish bathing before adorning your jewellery. Organic gemstones like pearls and opals are particularly sensitive to acids.
Store your jewellery individually, preferably in soft-lined boxes or cases, to prevent your favourite pieces from tangling, rubbing, or scratching against one another.
Ensure that chains and necklaces are securely fastened when storing them to avoid tangles.
Remember to remove your jewellery while cooking, cleaning, or engaging in washing up activities.
When not in use, store your jewellery away from direct sunlight, extreme heat, or damp conditions.
To safeguard your diamond's beauty, here are some steps to follow:
Handle with Care: Always handle your diamond with care and store it separately from other pieces of jewellery to prevent scratches, especially when stored with other diamond jewellery. Individual small plastic bags or a fabric-lined case can provide added protection against damage, wear, and the accumulation of dirt.
Regular Cleaning: Keep your diamond sparkling by cleaning it regularly. A gentle soak in warm water with a degreasing solution (a few drops of washing-up liquid will do the trick) can help dislodge dirt. Follow this with a soft, clean toothbrush to gently brush the diamond before drying it with a lint-free cloth. Pay special attention to the stone's setting, as it may be delicate. Avoid using harsh abrasives or bleaches, as these can potentially damage the precious metal in which the diamond is mounted.
