Remove your jewelry when participating in strenuous activities, such as exercising, housekeeping or gardening. If you forget, there’s a risk of chipping, breaking and damaging your treasures. Additionally, it’s important to take off your pieces before applying cosmetics, swimming and going to sleep. Whenever something is taken off, take the correct steps to ensure it’s stowed away properly.


Fine jewelry should be stored at room temperature, away from sunlight and in low humidity. When putting your pieces away, it’s essential that they’re put in separate, inclosed areas. Investing in a compartmentalized jewelry box is a great option to prevent scratched, damaged and broken pieces. Before storing your pieces, give them a quick clean with a soft, lint–free cloth to ensure buildup of product is removed.


Cleaning your jewelry is easy and can be done with products you have lying around. To begin, create a mixture of warm water and mild dish soap, soak your pieces separately and gently brush them with a soft toothbrush. Once they’ve been cleaned, rinse them under water to remove soap. Make sure you stay away from drains to avoid the risk of your treasured pieces falling down. Some gemstones are more delicate than others, requiring an alternate cleaning process. So, before you get started, we recommend reaching out to our team for recommendations. We’re always happy to share our knowledge and even set you up with a professional cleaning.
