caring for your jewelry


Read below on how to properly care for your Jewelry, Precious Metals, and Gemstones.

Caring For Your Diamonds


Cleaning:

Use a cleaner or detergent bath, steam cleaning or ultrasonic cleaner. Do not boil gemstones.


Storing:

Keep your jewelry in a fabric-lined case or a box that has individual compartments. If you use ordinary boxes, such as department store gift boxes, wrap each piece of jewelry in tissue paper. Important: Do not let your diamond pieces tumble around with other jewelry. Diamonds can scratch other gemstones, precious metals and even other diamonds.


Traveling:

When traveling, pack your jewelry with care. Many types of travel cases specifically designed for jewelry are on the market. These carryalls come in various sizes, shapes and fabrics. Most have velvet pads inside to hold pins and earrings, and compartments for bracelets and necklaces.

Caring For Your Fine Jewelry


For cleaning fine jewelry, we recommend using a cleaner or detergent bath, steam cleaning or using an ultrasonic cleaner. Do not boil gemstones.


Emeralds and Opals:

These are very delicate stones. Emeralds should be cleaned only with a soft brush. Opals may be cleaned in a mild, soapy solution. Jewelry cleaner, ultrasonic cleaners and steam cleaning are not recommended.


Blue Topaz:

Clean blue topaz gemstones in a warm, mild, soapy solution with a soft brush. Steam cleaning is permissible. Do not boil or use an ultrasonic cleaner.


Pearls:

Do not wear pearls while applying cosmetics, hair sprays or perfume. It is best not to wear pearl strands while bathing, because water can weaken the string. Wipe pearl strands with a damp cloth after each use. Do not clean cultured pearls with chemicals, abrasives or jewelry cleaner. 


Storing:

Keep your jewelry in a fabric-lined case or a box that has individual compartments. If you use ordinary boxes, such as department store gift boxes, wrap each piece of jewelry in tissue paper.

Caring For Your Watch


Treat your watch as a piece of fine jewelry and it will last a long. This includes filing your warranty and instructions in a safe place in case you need them in the future. Timepieces such as sports watches often have many features that may require you to look at the instructions several times.


To keep your watch running smoothly, it’s a good idea to have it professionally serviced every 2 years. Periodic cleaning and proper care will also ensure that your fine timepiece looks its best and gives years of faithful service.


Cleaning:

With a watch that is not water-resistant, clean the bracelet and casing with a toothpick, then a soft, lint-free cloth. Keep watches that are not water-resistant dry to prevent rusting.


For water-resistant watches, use warm water and mild soap to clean the casing. Use a soft cloth to clean leather straps; do not use water.


Quartz watches contain batteries that need to be changed about every 2 years. Change the battery before it runs out. Dead batteries can leak and ruin the inner workings of the finest watch.


Crystal Care:

The crystal is the clear cover that protects the watch face. Some crystals are scratch-resistant but not scratchproof. Replace damaged crystals right away to ensure proper functioning. Storing your watch in its original case will help prevent scratches.
