Jewelry Care

Your treasured jewels need some love to make sure they last generations. Jewelry care includes limiting their exposure to the elements, regular light cleaning, and routine checkups.

Exposure to everyday chemicals like lotions, perfumes, and makeup should be limited. It is best to remove your jewelry before applying.

Avoid any exposure to household cleaners. Remove your jewelry when doing rough activities like housework, gardening, sports, or handling cast iron. Avoid extreme temperatures such as a hot sauna or skiing.

To clean your jewelry, soak in warm water with a couple of drops of mild dish soap for a few minutes. Then brush lightly with a very soft brush and rinse. This can be done every few weeks for a piece that is worn every day. Do not do this for soft gems such as pearls, turquoise or amber.

Every 6-12 months, we recommend bringing your jewelry in to be checked and professionally cleaned. Even though our jewelry is made to last, it will require maintenance and inspection, especially worn every day. If you notice anything such as a loose stone or bent edges bring it in right away so we can fix it before you lose a stone.

Most importantly, get your jewels insured! We recommend insuring your jewelry with your homeowner’s policy.
