Jewellery Care

Just like you, our beautiful jewellery does need to be looked after.  Many factors can influence the wear and tear of jewellery.  We have compiled a list of hints and tips on how to care for your House of Pascal jewellery; so it will look as lovely as the day you received it.  This care guide will help you to keep your jewellery looking its best so that you can enjoy wearing it for years to come.

 


 

How to Care

 - Always store your jewellery pieces individually, preferably in your House of Pascal box or pouch so that they don’t rub together, scratch or tangle. Also remember to keep your chains fastened so they don’t become tangled.

- Take care to avoid extreme humidity or heat as this may cause tarnishing. Your gold vermeil and silver jewellery should be kept in a dark, cool and dry place. With time and wear, sterling silver will naturally become oxidised and eventually tarnish. Storing silver jewellery in a sealed plastic bag or airtight box when it is not being worn will keep out the air that causes oxidation.

- Use a soft, dry, lint-free cloth after each wear to remove any make up or natural skin oils. 

- Do not use abrasive cleaners on jewellery or rough paper tissues to clean precious metals as this can scratch the metal.

- Never spray perfume, hairspray or any other solvent on your jewellery. To prevent harsh chemicals damaging your jewellery, we advise you to apply cosmetic products prior to putting on your jewels.

- Harsh chemicals, such as chlorine can damage, discolour or erode precious metals and gemstones, therefore jewellery should be removed when bathing and swimming.

- Silver is a soft metal by nature so treat your jewels delicately and do not wear to bed. We recommend removing jewellery when participating in any physical or labour intensive activities. 

 


 How to Clean

- Clean your jewellery carefully with a soft, non-abrasive and lint-free cloth or chamois; this helps maintain or bring back its shine. If necessary, you can use a mild washing up liquid with warm water and a soft toothbrush, then rinse with clean water and pat dry with a soft cloth.

 

 


Avoid using ‘dip’ polish or abrasive jewellery cleaners as these contain harsh chemicals and can destroy your jewellery over time. We do not recommend the use of any jewellery polishing cloths which have been treated with cleaners or polishing agents.

 


Keep Away 

- Always remember that your jewellery should be the last thing you put on and the first thing you take off when dressing.

- Your jewellery is particularly susceptible to damage when exposed to chemicals that are present in perfume, lotions, hairspray, make-up, nail polish remover, body oils, sun tan lotion, deodorant, pool and sea water.  

- Do not swim or shower while wearing gold-plated or silver jewellery, and remove rings when washing your hands. Chlorine, salt water and fresh water can damage precious metals and gemstones by dulling or eroding them. Gold and silver are particularly susceptible to damage from chlorine, which can permanently damage or discolour them.  Soapy water when bathing and showering can also leave a thin film, which makes the metal seem dull.

- Avoid undue moisture and should your item get wet, make sure to dry it off.
