Maintenance is key when ensuring the life of your most precious pieces. Jewelry should be cleaned on a regular basis to keep its shine and sparkle. Beautiful stones, diamonds and metals need to be cleaned to retain their beauty. Oils on your skin and beauty products such as perfume and hair spray can dull and damage stone and precious metals over time, not to mention accumulate grime and germs!Settings, links and fasteners should also be checked once a year to ensure the structure of the piece is in top shape. The time and cost of proper upkeep is nothing compared to losing or ruining a beautiful piece.
