Tips for the storage and care of jewellery.
Represented brand name jewelleries by E-shop www.jewellery.lv are made of gold and silver or other precious metals. Correct and regular care can prolong the durability of the jewellery.
To ensure you enjoy your precious and beautiful jewellery for as long as possible, you should follow a few basic rules:
Rings and other items of jewellery should preferably not be worn while working in the house or garden, while swimming (in salt or chlorinated water) or during sports.
The jewellery should be taken off before going to bed and prior to showering.
Perfume and hairspray can remove the sheen and the brilliance of the jewellery. For this reason, it is advisable to use perfume, hairspray and other cosmetics before putting on the jewellery.
Pearls must not come into contact with perfume, make-up or hairspray. Their surface could be damaged by alcohol or other solvents. It should be stored separate from other jewellery, ideally in a fabric pouch or wrapped in a soft cloth. This will prevent your pearls being scratched. Please note: pearl jewellery must not be exposed to sunlight. The UV radiation in sunlight damages and bleaches the pearls.
Soap, crème and make-up residues can be removed using an ultrasound device. The ultrasound device should not contain aggressive cleaning agents. For best results, use water and a neutral detergent.
For standard commercial silver dipping baths, only silver jewellery dipping baths must be used. In other words: no silver cutlery dipping baths and no gold jewellery dipping baths!
Immerse the jewellery for approx. 10 seconds and then rinse thoroughly under hot water and rub dry using a cloth or a hairdryer.
Blackened items of jewellery should not be cleaned using a silver dipping bath or polished with a silver cloth as these may remove the blackening. Such jewelery can be cleaned by polishing with a soft cloth that is not impregnated with special cleaners.
Items of jewellery with imitations, pearls, lapis lazuli, coral, turquoise, mother-of-pearl or hematite are not suitable for cleaning in a silver dipping bath.
Only the silver parts of leather, rubber and silk cords should be cleaned using a silver cloth. Leather and silk cords must not be placed in a silver dipping bath or cleaned in an ultrasound device.
