Jewelry Care Guide

Care Guide

We believe jewellery should be loved and worn every day; however, it is important to understand that your piece is delicate in nature and crafted with precious metals and gems that are not indestructible and can be damaged with improper care.

1. "First off, Last on"

Here's a rule of thumb to remember: jewelry should be "first off and last on". Last on means putting on your jewelry after you have completed all personal grooming, including clothing, make-up, nails, hair styling and perfume. This is important as some of the chemicals in these substances can damage your setting and you don't want your clothes to accidentally get caught on a prong. First off means you should remove all jewelry before you begin to undress or remove any make-up.

2. Working Out

Always remove all jewelry before you begin any strenuous activity. This includes any type of work-out, even yoga and dancing, and any type of heavy lifting, whether you're helping a friend with furniture or lifting weights.

3. Sleep

Remove all jewelry prior to going to bed, so that blankets or sheets do not get caught on the prongs and break them off. The weight of your body rolling onto your prongs can damage them.

4. Chemicals

Never let your jewelry come into contact with any harsh chemicals, such as chlorine or bleach. These chemicals will break down and wear away the alloy metals in your ring. Even the chemicals in nail-polish remover, perfume and hairspray can be damaging.

5. Self Care

To preserve the clarity of your ring's center stone and prevent it from clouding up or losing its shiny quality, please make sure to remove your ring before:

  • Washing your hands with soap
  • Showering
  • Applying lotion
  • Applying hair products

Soap and lotions can leave a residue, which builds up over time and causes the stone to lose its sparkle and become cloudy.

6. Cooking and Yardwork

Always remove your ring before cooking that involves manipulating food directly with your hands and outdoor activities like gardening.

Cleaning Tips

 If the stone does get cloudy, here are a few steps you can take on your own:

  • Polish, using a lint-free, 100% cotton cloth
  • Soak in warm water and a few drops of dish soap for 30 minutes. Use a soft bristled toothbrush and brush gently, making sure to get underneath the stone. Do not brush vigorously as it can loosen the prongs. 
  • Before and after cleaning, check to see that the stone is still tightly set - especially if using a steam cleaner
  • Never use an ultrasonic cleaner on micro-pavé stones or emeralds
