Jewellery must always be handled and cared for as precious pieces of art, even thou jewellery is basically stone and metal.
Basic caring instructions are as follows
Store in a safe, dry, and dark environment.
Regularly check stone settings , meaning prongs ,bezels. An effective way of doing this is with a simple magnifying lens (your phones camera ) look for any damage and irregular looking prongs. A simple shake of your jewellery next to your ear will also tell you if any stones are loose .
Do not use harsh chemicals on or around your jewellery , especially with organic gems like pearls corals and softer gems like turquoise.
Clean your jewellery often to keep away any unnecessary build up of contamination. A simple hand wash liquid , with a soft worn toothbrush is great , rinse off with warm water and let the jewellery dry.
Try not to wear your jewellery gardening or similar activities.
Most of all enjoy and love your jewellery.
