Caring for your gemstone pieces 

To ensure your gemstone pieces maintain their allure, follow these care tips: 

  • Cleaning: Gently wipe gemstone jewellery with a soft, damp cloth after wearing to remove any oils or residues. 
  • Storage: Keep gemstone pieces in individual pouches or compartments to prevent scratching and damage. Keep them away from diamonds, are the hardness of diamonds can stratch or damage softer gemstones. 
  • Avoid contact: Remove gemstone-adorned accessories when applying perfume, lotion, or hairspray to prevent chemical interactions. Last on, first off!
