Caring For Jewellery 

  • Always Remove When Cleaning

If you are going to be cleaning, make sure you remove your jewellery first. Spraying chemicals around your jewellery could affect its look, so always remove it before you start cleaning and using cleaning liquids.

  • Stay Away From Chemicals

Try and stay away from chemicals and don’t spray perfume or apply makeup while wearing your jewellery. Perfume could tarnish your pieces and makeup could affect the look of your jewellery also.

  • Take Off Your Jewellery In Water

Remove all jewellery before getting into the water. This includes getting into a spa or pool as chlorinated water may discolour your jewellery.

  • Keep Away From Direct Sunlight

Try and keep your jewellery out of direct sunlight, also try and avoid wearing your pieces in extreme temperatures and keep away from humid areas.

How To Store Jewellery

When you are not wearing your jewellery, try and keep it stored in a safe place. Stackers jewellery boxes are your best bet, making sure your jewellery is kept out of direct sunlight. You may also want to store each piece in separate plastic bags or soft fabric pouches. This will help prevent the pieces from scratching against one another or getting tangled up. It will also help to protect your jewellery from dust and dirt.

Here at Joshua James, not only do we stock a fine selection of jewellery, but we also know how to look after our pieces too. So if you received new jewellery this Christmas and want to know exactly how to care for your gifts, make sure to read our guide above on how to care, clean and store your precious pieces.
