One reason our master jewelers are held in such esteem is their attention to preventative care. We understand that when one has something of value they will take better care of it. The simple steps of Jewelry Care our professional jewelers have put together will help you extend the life of your jewelry.
You have the jewelry that you think is beautiful and some of the easiest ways to continue that beauty is through preventative care. The best care is one that is simple: be careful. This will keep your jewelry sparkling and shinning into the future. Accidents do occur, but being careful helps to deter these issues. Some extremely soft or fragile jewelry may need extra care.
Keep in mind that the harder the rating on the Mohs scale of hardness indicates the durability the stone generally has. At the same time, a stone with a high or distinctive cleavage is prone to be fragile and could break or cleave if struck. Hardness in this case will not equate into toughness. Therefore, a tough gem might be easily scratched whereas a hard stone might break. Remember these points when storing your jewelry.
Metals are similar. The purer the silver or gold the easier it is to damage. You should also consider the combination of metals in the setting with or without gems. In many cases, what works to clean metals, like silver, do not work on certain stones. Moreover, always consider the entire piece of jewelry not just the metal or gems.
Therefore, you must store you jewelry in a way to help extend the life of the piece. Damage could happen at any point, but storing soft metals with hard metals will end with the softer metal scratching.
