Jewelry and Watch Care

Jewelry Care. Whether you wear them every day or only occasionally, your pieces of jewelry are precious objects that require care and attention. You should remove your jewelry when washing your hands and putting on perfume or face cream. Regular contact with household detergents or insecticides may damage pearls and certain precious stones. Products containing mercury, such as Mercurochrome, will cause irreversible damage to gold.
spacerPrecautions. Before putting on your piece of jewelry, examine it for a moment: check that the clasp is not "loose" and check that the settings of the stones have not moved. Take your regular activities and lifestyle into account; avoid wearing jewelry on the beach, at the swimming pool or to play sports to avoid knocks and scratches. Wearing your jewelry should also be avoided when doing housework or gardening.

Maintenance. Your jewelry should be cleaned regularly. Settings and overall conditions of a piece should be evaluated every 6 months or so. Scrub the jewelry delicately with a soft small brush in lukewarm soapy water, carefully rinse it in lukewarm water and wipe it with a soft cloth. Once every year, have them checked, cleaned and revitalized.
Jewelry Care
spacerStorage. Don't place several pieces of jewelry together without protection - they can become scratched when they come into contact with one another. We recommend that you store them individually in the case that you were given at the time of purchase. Chains should be closed and laid flat so as to avoid the formation of knots.
Watch Care. Whether you wear it every day or only occasionally, your watch is an object that requires care and attention to maintain accuracy, regularity of rate and authenticity. Keep your watch away from all sources of magnetism, e.g., smartphones and computers, but also magnetized handbag clasps, loudspeakers or airport metal detectors. Magnetic fields may have an effect on your watch's movement ranging from minor interference to actually causing it to stop.

To preserve the shine of the polished surfaces and precious stones found in your watch, avoid wearing a bracelet on the same wrist. Do not wear your watch when sleeping. To protect its movement from vibrations or temperature differences, don't wear your watch when playing sports such as golf or tennis or taking part in activities such as saunas. Whether your watch is water-resistant or not, you can clean it with a soft, dry cloth.
