Jewelry Care

WEAR.  Always last on, first off.  Your jewelry should be the last thing you put on and the first thing you take off when dressing.  Put on jewelry after makeup and hair styling.  Keep all jewelry away from sea water, hot spring, and household chemicals including chlorine, bleach, perfume, cosmetics, and hair products as they may damage your jewelry.  It is NOT recommended to wear jewelry while sleeping, swimming, bathing, or during sports activities.

STORAGE.  When cared for properly, fine jewelry can last a lifetime.  Wipe your jewelry with a soft cloth after each wear and store the items separately in a fabric-lined jewelry box or pouch to avoid scratches.

CLEANING.  Cleaning your jewelry regularly is one way to keep your jewelry looking its best.  After each wear, you may clean it by polishing with a soft dry cloth to remove any buildup of dirt, skin oils, makeup and perspiration.  To clean dirty gold jewelry, soak the jewelry in a solution of warm water mixed with mild soap or dish detergent.  Use a soft bristled toothbrush to gently scrub the jewelry, rinse it and dry thoroughly with a soft cloth.  Do not use a brush to clean pearls, turquoise, or other soft stones – use your fingertips instead.

PEARLS.  Store your pearl jewelry separately to prevent scratching.  Keep it away from anything acidic and wipe your pearls with a soft, lint-free cloth as soon as you take them off.  Dirty pearls can be cleaned with a mild soap and water solution.

GEMSTONE CORALS.  For daily maintenance, rinse your coral ornamental jewelry with water after use and wipe it dry gently with a soft cotton cloth.  Little amount of baby oil can be used to polish your coral.  Store it in a clean and dry place and avoid light contact.
