Gemstones and Jewellery Care When your jewellery has been sourced all over the world, created with the finest gemstones and precious metals, it is good to give a little care and attention to keep it looking its best. Dust, pollution and daily wear all conspire to cloud the brilliance of a gemstone and dull the surface of precious metals. As with all fine things in life, you should take care to protect your jewellery and always store it in a fabric-lined jewellery box, taking care not to drop, bash or scratch. CARE TIPS Always remove your jewellery when applying scents, lotions and potions, or even better, always put your jewellery on last when getting dressed. Please note that chlorine is especially damaging to jewellery. Ensure that you rinse off any chemicals that come into contact with your jewellery straight away to avoid build up which can make cleaning difficult. Avoid storing your jewellery next to costume jewellery or watches with leather straps. Store jewellery separately so that pieces do not tangle, rub or scratch against each other.
