While our jewellery was created to last a lifetime, there are some factors that can contribute to the everyday wear and tear of your fine jewellery.
Storing your Jewellery
Because of the high value and rarity of certain jewellery, some people like to store their jewellery in a safe when not in use. If you have individual gemstones, a soft pouch is good for keeping them from coming in contact with other hard surfaces. Store silver jewellery in a cool, dry place, preferably in a soft piece of felt or cloth. Ask one of our sales representatives about getting a jewellery box for all your valued treasures. If you would like to have your jewellery professionally cleaned, bring it in to Barthau Jewellers and we will have your jewellery looking shiny and new!
Cleaning Your Jewellery
Be careful using ultrasonic cleaners, as only certain gemstones can handle the ultrasonic vibrations. Diamond cleaners usually contain ammonia and water. Using a soft brush you can remove dust or dirt from under the setting. Silver jewellery can be cleaned with a silver polishing cloth, with or without special silver cleaning solution.
