Jewellery Care Guide
We love to wear our jewellery regularly and believe it should be enjoyed as a regular addition to your attire, rather than tucked away in a safe. That said, the majority of older pieces (Georgian and Victorian especially), wouldn't have been worn daily, more so for special occasions, so with these pieces extra care needs to be taken to ensure their continued longevity.
Just as you would clean your clothing, keeping your jewellery clean is also very important. Not only is it easy to do and will allow it to be shown at its best, it will also enable you to check that no damage has occurred. Regular cleaning helps prevent a build-up of dirt and bacteria under the settings. Follow these simple steps to ensure your jewels will always sparkle as much as they did the day you received them!
N.B. Although the majority of jewellery can be cleaned this way, some items need specialist cleaning. This is not an exhaustive list, if in doubt please check with us: Items which shouldn't be immersed in hot water include Opals & Emeralds, gems which are closed or foil backed as in some Georgian pieces, lockets, sentimental/mourning pieces with hair, or those containing pictures or fabrics.
