Maintaining your jewelry

​IF YOU HAVE ARTICLES OF JEWELRY THAT YOU WEAR 

FREQUENTLY, IT IS RECOMMENDED TO HAVE YOUR JEWELRY CHECKED AND CLEANED 

BY A PROFESSIONAL JEWELER EVERY 3-6 MONTHS. 


  • For rings: Have your prongs checked to ensure that all of your stones are secure.

  • If your stones are loose, we can adjust or rebuild the setting to ensure the security of your stones. 

  • For pearl or beaded necklaces: it is recommended to have your strand restrung once a year. 


How to clean your jewelry​:

  • Use warm water and mild soap.

  • Rinse well.

  • Polish with soft cloth.

  • ​ Dry your jewelry before storage. Both gold and silver can tarnish.  Water can leave residual stains on precious metals. 

  • Store jewelry carefully and follow instructions for care when provided.
