How To Care for Your New Linneys Jewellery Piece – Our Top Tips
No matter the size of your Linneys jewellery collection, knowing how to care for your pieces is essential. From storing your items correctly to regular gentle cleaning, read on to learn more about taking care of your stunning jewellery pieces.
1. Get in the habit of removing your jewellery.
All jewellery is delicate, so ensure you remove rings, necklaces, and bracelets when working with your hands or engaging in activities involving chemicals or abrasives. This can include:
- Swimming in chlorinated water
- Housework cleaning
- Working in the garden
- Playing sports.
2. Make jewellery the finishing touch.
It's best to wait until you're almost walking out the door ready before adorning yourself with your jewels. Chemicals from make-up, hair products, and perfume can damage delicate pieces.
3. Avoid using moisturisers or lotions while wearing jewellery.
While occasional exposure is unlikely to damage fine jewellery it can build up and dull surfaces. We recommend applying hand or body creams after you've removed your jewellery.
4. Store your pieces carefully.
Correct storage will avoid damage to precious gemstones like pearls and delicate chains.
5. Use a jewellery case while travelling.
While regular storage is important, safely storing your jewellery while travelling is essential. Protect your precious pieces using specially designed travel jewellery cases or jewellery rolls to keep your items safe and tangle-free.
6. Inspect your pieces regularly.
Everyday wear and tear takes its toll on jewellery. Before putting on a pair of earrings or a necklace, examine them to help identify elements requiring cleaning or repair. Linneys offer all our clients a complimentary cleaning service, so make regular upkeep a habit.
7. Service your jewellery.
You may not realise that luxury jewellery can require regular servicing. Here at Linneys of Perth, we recommend servicing your items once a year. A professional jewellery service can help rectify:
- Loose gems in fine jewellery
- Deep scratches • Dust or dirt build-up
- Broken clasps or chain links
- Lost parts
8. Keep your pieces dry.
Moisture can cause issues for precious jewellery, possibly leading to cracks, a lack of shine, and water stains. Dry each piece carefully with a soft cloth if it does get wet.
Caring for your jewellery is an integral part of maintaining its value and beauty. From diamond engagement rings to incredible bespoke pendants, every piece looks better when it sparkles. Refer to our jewellery care guide for more information.
