• Apply lotion, cosmetics, hairspray and perfume before dressing in jewelry.
  • When undressing, wipe each piece with a clean soft cloth to remove oils and perspiration.
  • Store in a fabric-lined box, separately or individually wrapped in tissue to prevent scratches.

    Tips for Cleaning

    • Follow the instructions appearing on the label or box.
    • Clean in a secure location, not the rim of a sink where a piece may slip down the drain.
    • Use only a soft brush, never sharp or hard objects, to remove dirt or particles.
    • Clean your jewelry often; lotions, soaps and skin oils alter the optical properties of diamonds and gemstones, causing them to look dull.
    • Seriously soiled jewelry should be cleaned professionally.
    • Clean diamond jewelry with a soft brush dipped in warm water and mild detergent; rinse under running water.
    • Never expose pearl jewelry to chemicals or solvents, and store each piece in a soft bag.
    • Don’t expose colored gemstones to chemicals, solvents or ultrasonics without knowing their specific cleaning requirements.

    Tips for a long life

    • Keep your Laboratory Reports in a safe location, separate from jewelry pieces, for security.
    • Have your jewelry cleaned and checked by a professional for worn mountings, loose prongs and general condition at least once per year.
    • Have white gold re-plated, platinum re-polished and prongs re-tipped as necessary to maintain original condition (generally every 24 months or so).
    • Have frequently-worn pearls restrung as necessary, with a knot between each pearl to prevent loss if the string breaks.
    • Some colored gemstones should not be exposed to sudden temperature changes; know your pieces and their needs.
          – Select daily-wear jewelry that is in harmony with your lifestyle and schedule of activities.
    • Treat each piece as if it were a family heirloom, for someday it may be.
