How to take care of your jewel

Your jewels are precious. By taking a few precautions in using and maintaining them, you will be able to preserve their original beauty over time.

Your jewelry should be cleaned regularly. You can use a very soft brush and soapy water/baking soda to clean it, then rinse your piece with clean warm water and blow-dry it. Jewels with leather parts can be cleaned with a soft cloth.

Consider removing your jewelry before going to sleep, practicing any sport, washing your hands or using corrosive products. Avoid contact with fragrance, alcohol, cosmetics, ammonia, chlorine and keep your pieces away from intense sources of heat and extreme temperature changes.

Prevent damage or loss of your jewels by storing them individually in their original box or pouch after wearing them; contact with other jewelry pieces could cause scratches. Keep them away from marble/stone or metallic surfaces. Chains should be closed and laid flat to avoid their becoming tangling. Neck bands should be stored open, separately, and laid flat into a box, to avoid creases.

If your jewelry suffers a shock or hit, the stone setting may need to be checked. Avoid forcing clasps, joints and metal frames and be sure to check that the clasp and safety latch close properly. If you have any concerns, you should not wear your jewel until you have had it checked by an expert in a Margoni shop or in our workshop.
