JEWELLERY CARE TIPS
Rossette emphasis on a
combination of craftsmanship and creative standards, therefore exceptional
jewellery calls for exceptional care. There are simple things we can all do at home to help your jewellery
look its best and last (almost) forever.
To keep your jewellery fabulous and
fresh, here’s a guide to care for your jewellery:
Wear with Care
THE GOLDEN RULE: Your jewellery should be the last thing you put on
– after skincare, perfume, hairspray and other chemical substances that can
dull & discolour the stones and metal – and the first thing to take off
when you reached home from events/functions.
Secure your Precious
ALWAYS store jewellery separately, in a cool, dry place –
preferably in the same box the jewellery comes with – away from sunlight. Just
as the sun’s harmful ray can damage our skin, light and heat can affect a coloured
gemstone’s durability and colour.
REMEMBER TO USE a non-abrasive cloth when cleaning your jewellery.
Don’t use a chemical cleaner as they could discolour the surface and cause
damage. Clean regularly to avoid tarnish build up.
Beware of Contamination
DO NOT wear your ring(s) while washing your hands with soap or
applying lotion. The soap and lotion will build up and cause the stone to be
Protect Your Investment
MAKE SURE to have your jewellery checked by a local jeweller every
three to six months to address any signs of damage or loose gemstones to keep
your pieces in excellent shape for years.
Know When to Take Off Your Jewellery
ALWAYS take off all jewellery prior showering, swimming, spa or
going to bed. Shampoo and conditioner can get stuck behind mountings and steam
can loosen the glue that holds pieces together. Salt water and chlorine can
damage and discolour metals and can erode the polishing finish of gemstones.
Certain minerals used in spas can also tarnish your jewellery. Your blanket can
catch onto the prongs and break them off. Contact with a wall or hard material
can damage the ring.
Jewellery is one of our most intimate and
cherished accessories. With proper care and attention, your precious jewellery can
stand the test of time, for many generations to come. Visit Rossette
