Fine Jewellery Care
Lucia Rose Jewellery has been designed and made to the highest quality standards. Proper care and maintenance will preserve the beauty and shine of your jewellery. Take care to avoid exposing jewellery to substances containing chemicals like bleach or ammonia and remove your jewelry before swimming in chlorinated water or the ocean. Always put your jewellery on after you dress to avoid contact with perfumes, cosmetics or other household chemicals.
When it is not being worn, always store your jewelry in its original case. If this is impractical, use a suitably lined box or protective pouch, even a bag that seals with suffice. To avoid scratches, each piece of jewelry should be stored separately and bracelets should always be stored flat. Never store your Lucia Rose Jewellery in a leather pouch or bag.
Most gold jewelry can be safely cleaned with a non-abrasive jewelry cleaner. Always rinse completely and blot dry with a chamois cloth. Never use creamy jewelry cleaners on gold as they may containing harsh abrasives that will scratch the surface of the jewelry.
Exposure to air, dust or other elements, particularly those containing sulfur, may cause sterling silver to tarnish more rapidly. There are a number of non-abrasive polishes on the market specifically designed to remove tarnish. Always read the warning label and take care when using polishes on jewelry containing gemstones. Never store your Lucia Rose Jewellery in a leather pouch or bag.
Special attention should be paid to gemstone jewelry. Avoid extreme temperature changes and contact with household chemicals. Never expose stones to hot solutions, abrasive cleaners or ultrasonic cleaners. With the exception of pearls, which require special care, gemstones may be cleaned with a non-abrasive jewelry cleaner.
Pearl jewelry require special care to keep the stones looking their best. Never let these stones come in contact with creams, ammoniated liquid, nail polish remover OR chlorinated water (swimming pools, etc.).
