Beautiful jewellery is an investment designed to last a lifetime, so it's important to keep it in good shape and care for it appropriately.
Let's have a look at when you should take it for some professional tender loving care.
To keep your jewellry in good condition it's important to take it in for professional maintenance once a year, at a stretch every year and a half. This ensures that any damage or wear from use and age is caught before it's too late. This is particularly important for rings containing precious jewels where it is essential that prongs are kept strong and tight.
Well trained jewellers are able to tighten any loose fittings as well as file out any dents or deep scratches. This will help to protect the surface of your pieces over their lifetime.
It is advisable to take your jewellry for a check up after getting it first professionally cleaned. This allows jewellers to have an unhindered view of the piece and makes it easier to spot any potential areas of damage and wear.
Fine jewellry should be something worn with pride, whenever and wherever you like – so it's important to keep them sparkling.
While quite a lot of cleaning can be done at home, for your finest pieces we recommend taking them for a thorough professional clean every six months to a year. This can usually be done at your local jewellers for a very reasonable cost.
A lot of your jewellry will be made of the highest quality metals, diamonds and gemstones – but this does not make them indestructible. Even diamonds can be chipped and worn in the rough and tumble of daily life. To keep your jewellry intact here are a few of our top tips:
