Try to keep jewellery items separate from each other so they don’t rub.
Organic gems like pearls, coral and amber should only be wiped clean with a moist cloth. Due to their organic nature these gems are both soft and porous. Be careful about chemicals in hairspray, cosmetics or perfume.
Gems can scratch the finish on your gold, silver or platinum if you throw your jewellery in a heap in a drawer or jewellery box.
Think twice before putting gems in an ultrasonic cleaner – when you’re not sure – DON’T!
