We love to collect timeless and classic pieces in our jewellery collection, a mix of keepsake pieces, heirlooms or everyday treasures. Part of this is ensuring that the precious pieces we own last and stay sparkling for years to come.
Today we're sharing our best kept secrets to keeping your jewels looking luxe.
What to do ....
Invest in Storage
Caring for the Finer Things
Get the Glow
Keep your jewels glowing brighter than Queen-Bey by gently cleaning them with a fine cloth to remove any residue and bring back the shine. Whether you have silver or gold pieces, you want to be very gentle as you do this to avoid scratching or lifting the surface. If you have a silver jewellery cloth this is perfect, otherwise a fine microfibre one (like the one that came with your sunglasses) is great.
A gentle buff with a dry cloth should be enough, or just a hint of fresh water. Always avoid using soaps or detergents as these can react with your precious metals or loosen jewellery fixings.
What to avoid ....
There are a few everyday items that don't react well with your jewels should they come into contact with them. It is always best to avoid the following:
Perfume, makeup, hairspray and moisturiser
Apply these before you put on your jewels, and do your best to avoid contact altogether.
This is a big one, as above avoid contact altogether as the oils in sunscreen are very reactive with metals.
Sweat and salt water
Whether you are hitting the beach, pool or the gym, it's always best to remove your jewellery beforehand as salt and chlorine are known to tarnish them quickly.
