Gemstone Jewellery Care Manual

In order to keep gems looking vibrant and valuable , it is important to keep in mind a few basic rules and follow some specific cleaning techniques:

Since gems vary in hardness, storing them next to each other can result in scratches and reduced polish.

Keeping jewelry separately, wrapped in cloth, silk or velvet is an easy task that will ensure preservation of luster and prevent damage.

The temperature at which gemstones are stored should be constant. Extreme temperature fluctuation can cause gemstones to fracture , also extreme exposure to strong sunlight may cause some coloured gemstones to fade or discolour.

Therefore jewellery should be stored out of direct sunlight .

To clean gemstones , wipe with slightly damp soft cloth and allow to air-dry before storing in box . Moisture trapped in stones can often cause discolouration.

Check for loose gemstones before wearing your jewelry and always remove it when engaging in strenuous activities.

Restringing pearl or beaded necklaces at least every two years is adviced to prevent loss of gemstones.

Do not wear or expose your gemstones to chemicals .

Do not wear your jewellery while cleaning or during activities such as swimming or showering . Chlorine can damage gemstones and soap residue leaves jewelry looking dull.

The chemicals in cosmetics, hairspray and perfume can damage gems, so jewellery should be put on last when dressing up , and taken off first when un-dressing .
