Over time fine jewellery can become a treasured family heirloom, if it is cared for properly. Dust, pollution and daily wear all conspire to cloud the brilliance of gemstones. The surface of gold, platinum and silver jewellery can become dulled. Timeworn prongs and clasps can result in the loss of a stone or an entire piece of jewellery.
Professional cleanings are recommended as often as once every couple of years. We encourage you to have your Ursula Jewels jewellery professionally serviced regularly. Professional jewellers are knowledgeable and experienced in all aspects of jewellery care, including cleaning gemstones, restringing pearls and repairing clasps and earring backs.
Between professional servicing, most gold and platinum jewellery can be maintained with a non-abrasive cleaner. You can use a soft baby toothbrush and warm soapy water to gently brush your jewellery clean. Pat dry with a soft towel. Examine your jewellery regularly to make sure settings are snug and clasps are secure.
Avoid exposing jewellery to perfumes, anti-bacterial gels and household bleach, which will quickly cause gold to discolour and possibly disintegrate.
Jewellery storage is important as well. At the time of purchase, all Ursula Jewels jewellery is placed in a tarnish-resistant pouch. Between wearings, we recommend that you place it back in its original case or another suitably lined box or pouch.
Life isn't perfect but your jewellery can be.
