Taking Care of Your Jewellery

Taking Care of Your Gold and Sterling Silver Jewellery
Gold jewellery can dull and appear to have lost its beautiful shiny lustre from general day to day wear and needs occasional polishing
Sterling silver tarnishes naturally and requires occasional cleaning. Also, Perfumes, skin preparations, hairspray, sunscreens, perspiration and cosmetics all can tarnish your silver jewellery too.
Storing your jewelry in plastic bags with an interlocking seal when not in use slows the tarnishing process.
Wash your jewellery in a very mild warm bath with (my favorite morning fresh dishwashing liquid and a cap of cloudy ammonia), rinse thoroughly with warm water and dry with a clean soft cloth, an old nappy or flannelette cloth is perfect.
DO NOT use the olds wives toothbrush as it is abrasive
Polish your Sterling Silver and Gold Jewellery carefully with the Hagerty Silver and Jewel Cleaning Cloth.
Polish both metal and precious gems carefully with a Hagerty Polishing Cloth.

Taking Good Care of Your Pearls
Your pearls are of organic origin with a soft and delicate porous surface. To maintain their beautiful luster, and to prevent damage, some simple care instructions should be followed.
~ Store your pearls separately, away from other jewellery. A soft cloth bag is ideal.
~ After wearing, wipe your pearls with a damp soft cloth to remove any perspiration, makeup or body oils.
~ Ideally have your pearls rethreaded by a professional jeweller who offers a pearl re-threading service every 1-2 years.
~ If you need to wash your pearls use warm very mild soapy water.
~ Use a very mild pure soap and never use detergents.
~ Rinse in clear water.
~ Pat dry with a soft clean cloth.
~ Lay out on a towel to dry.
~ DO NOT use ultrasonic cleaners.
~ Perfumes, skin preparations, hairspray and cosmetics all can be damaging to pearls. Complete your toiletry preparations prior to putting on your pearls.
~ If you follow these simple steps your pearls could become an heirloom and be treasured for generations.
