Caring for your jewellery:

    • Your jewellery should be stored in a dry place away from humidity, moisture and extreme temperatures.
    • To avoid damaging gemstones and scratching your jewellery store them in a jewellery box with separate compartments or in soft pouches.
    • Remember to remove your jewellery before applying perfumes, skin creams, suntan lotion or oils of any kind.
    • Never use detergent, soap, toothpaste etc to clean your gold jewellery.
    • Never wear your jewellery when working with detergents, bleaches, ammonia or alcohols; these chemicals will cause discoloration, damage and loosen stone     settings.
    • To clean sterling silver or gold plated jewellery use a dry soft clean cloth to wipe them clean. Do not use brushes of any kind as these may scratch your      jewellery.
    • To clean stainless steel jewellery use warm soapy water and a soft toothbrush.
    • Gentle rubbing with a silver cleaning cloth will restore the original brilliance of the surface.
    • If you wear your gold plated silver jewellery for significant periods of time, the plating will eventually wear down. To restore its appearance, you can have it     re-plated. Please contact help@tressor.com
    • Rings and bracelets should be worn sparingly to avoid damage through impact.

Wearing

Silver Jewellery will naturally tarnish over time. Always protect your jewellery from knocks, scratches, chemicals, sunlight and heat/cold to minimise these effects.

    • We recommend removing jewellery when you shower or bathe and particularly when on the beach, in the sea and in chlorinated water.
    • Avoid spraying perfume or applying creams directly onto your jewellery.
    • Keep away from extreme temperatures, humidity and sunlight, and avoid wearing your jewellery when using bleach.

Storing

To protect your jewellery, pieces should be individually placed in a pouch or within a soft lined box to stop them being scratched or tangled. Ideally store your jewellery in a dark, cool and dry place, and try to keep pieces apart, so that they don’t rub together or tangle up.

Cleaning

Metal –
Using a soft, lint free cloth is an effective way to keep silver, 18ct yellow and rose gold vermeil jewellery looking shiny and lustrous. A silver cleaner can also be used to clean sterling silver pieces. Ideally, store silver pieces in an airtight bag to help reduce tarnishing. Do not use tissue paper or paper towels to clean metal as they can cause scratching.

Gemstones –
Since many gemstones are quite delicate, hot water, harsh chemicals and cleaners should be avoided at all times. We advise cleaning your precious stones with a clean, soft, damp cloth after wearing. Very porous stones such as turquoise and emeralds should be cleaned using an untreated, dry, soft cloth only. Do not use tissue paper or paper towels to clean gemstones as they can cause scratching.
