Pearls & Opals
Pearls and Opals draw moisture from the air, so storing your pearl in a dry area, such as safe deposit box, can sometimes do more harm than good.
Store all Jewellery separately to prevent scratches or other impact damages. Jewellery should be checked every 1-2 times/year and cleaned frequently.
Clean your Jewellery by brushing with soft toothbrush in warm water and mild dish soap detergent. Dry them individually with soft cloth.
Ensure loose clasps are tightened to prevent dropping of ear thuds/backs.
Chemicals & Weather
Avoid direct contact with perfume, body lotions, hand sanitizers/other chemicals.
Keep your Jewellery away from extreme temperatures, humidity or sunlight.
Remove Jewellery when bathing, showering or swimming.
Remove Jewellery before going to bed or participating in physical activities e.g. sports, doing house chores.
Keep your Jewellery dry at all times, remove when washing as water trap dust particles beneath and make your gems looking dull.
Remember to keep your bag from prolonged exposure to direct sunlight. Over time, this will cause it to deteriorate and fade.
You can normally wipe your bag with a microfiber cloth dampened with water, and immediately dry of with a clean drying cloth. This will keep dust off and remove minor debris accumulated after a day’s use.
Other best-practice include:
— Moisturize your bag about once a month or so with a leather conditioner to keep it shiny and supple.
— Remove stains as soon as you notice them.
— Store your bag in its original dust bag and fill it with stuffing (bubble wrap or butter paper, avoid newspaper!)
Ensure crown is securely screwed in and do not use any functions which
require the unscrewing of its crown whilst underwater.
Avoid coming into close contact with items that emits strong magnetic
fields such as speakers, laptops and even magnetic clasps on bags.
As best as possible, try not to drop your watch to avoid damaging
delicate components within such as its hairspring and balance wheel.
Opt to rest your watch on a soft surface like a microfiber cloth. If a
soft surface is not available and you must put your watch down, consider
resting it on its crown to reduce the surface area in contact with the surface.
Follow your manufacturer’s recommended servicing guideline. As a rule of
thumb, have your watch serviced once every 5 years. Servicing your watch will
not only likely increase its lifespan but will also ensure proper timekeeping
