While our jewelry was created to last a lifetime, there are some factors that can contribute to the everyday wear and tear of your fine jewelry.
Storing your Jewelry
Because of the high value and rarity of certain jewelry, some people like to store their jewelry in a safe when not in use. If you have individual gemstones, a soft pouch is good for keeping them from coming in contact with other hard surfaces. Store silver jewelry in a cool, dry place, preferably in a soft piece of felt or cloth. Ask one of our sales representatives about getting a jewelry box for all your valued treasures. If you would like to have your jewelry professionally cleaned, bring it in to Estella Collection and we will have your jewelry looking shiny and new!
Cleaning Your Jewelry
Although our designs are made to withstand the test of time and shine through whatever life throws your way, we still recommend a little TLC every now and then to keep them undeniably radiant. With a few simple tips and tricks, you can keep your pieces looking brand new for years to come. A simple cleaning once a year is all it takes to keep your treasures shining bright each and every day.
Be careful using ultrasonic cleaners, as only certain gemstones can handle the ultrasonic vibrations. Diamond cleaners usually contain ammonia and water. Using a soft brush, you can remove dust or dirt from under the setting. Silver jewelry can be cleaned with a silver polishing cloth, with or without special silver cleaning solution.
Diamond Cleaning - The Do's and Don'ts
If you have questions, feel free to contact one of our diamond experts at Estella Collection, and we will be happy to provide all the information you need to help you keep your diamonds in great shape.
Your jewelry is designed to withstand the normal rigors of modern life, but keep in mind that gemstones can still be delicate to some degree, meaning that a bit of TLC goes a long way. We recommend applying your perfumes, colognes, and hairsprays before you put on gemstone jewelry to avoid having chemicals reduce your gem’s brilliance. For annual or biannual do-it-yourself cleaning, simply wash them with warm, soapy water. And always be sure to remove jewelry with gemstones before washing your hands, showering, swimming, or working out. Finally, we propose storing your precious gems in a padded box or jewelry case whenever you’re not wearing them.
Clarity Enhanced Stones
For color or clarity enhanced gemstones, ask a Estella Collection professional about cleaning and repair for your gemstone jewelry. For more information about each particular gemstone, read our gemstone guide.
