Jewellery can be some of our most valued possessions in life, so it is important that we know how to take care of it correctly.

Other Ways to Care for your Gemstones
Always store your gemstones separately to avoid scratches from harder gems. Soft stones like Lapis Lazuli and Turquoise can easily be scratched by the edges of other jewellery.
Sunlight and Heat
Gemstones like Amethyst and Citrine can fade in sunlight, so it is best to store jewellery away from direct sunlight. Opals also require extra special care since strong sunlight can dry out their water content, which can cause crazing or colour change.
Always avoid wearing jewellery whilst swimming, as the chlorine in the water can damage jewellery. Gold prongs are particularly susceptible, chlorine can cause gemstones to become loose and potentially fall out.
Remember to remove jewellery before using any product that contains bleach as gold and other metal alloys can deteriorate, leaving irreparable damage. Many gemstones are porous and can also be discoloured by products that contain bleach or ammonia.
