How to Care for Your Gems:
- Clean your gemstone jewellery with some warm water and gentle soap.
- Do not soak your pearls, corals or turquoise jewellery in water. We repeat, don’t do it.
- Humidity and moisture? Trust us, they are the enemy.
- Don’t wear your jewellery while swimming, in the shower or at the gym.
- Your gemstones aren’t perfume-friendly or lotion-friendly. So apply them first, and wear your jewellery after they settle into your skin.
- Got yourself a pretty string of pearls? Don’t forget to get them restrung every other year or so.
