Nonetheless, all heirloom jewelry has to be properly cared for and maintained. Daily wear and environmental pollutants can cloud the brilliance of diamonds and gemstones, and proper care and maintenance is necessary to preserve and protect your jewelry for years to come. Basic precautions should be taken with all your jewelry, and certain gemstones that are more delicate, will require special care.

Most jewelry can be cleaned safely with a non-abrasive jewelry cleaner. Rinse completely and blot dry with a soft cloth or clean microfibre tissue. When using polishes on jewelry, always take note of warning labels and choose a non-abrasive option.

Avoid exposure of jewelry to substances containing bleach or ammonia, and remove jewelry before swimming in chlorinated water or the ocean. Avoid contact with perfumes, cosmetics and other household chemicals. It is recommended to regularly examine clasps and settings and ensure a secure fit.

Storage

To avoid scratches, each piece of jewelry should be stored separately. Between wearings, it is recommended to store your jewelry in its protective or tarnish-resistant pouch. Sterling silver tarnishes rapidly when exposed to air, dust or other elements, particularly those containing sulfur. A non-abrasive silver polish cloth is recommended to remove tarnish. It is advised to never store your silver jewelry in a leather pouch.

Gemstones

Special attention should be paid to Anna Dora gemstone jewelry. Avoid extreme temperature changes and contact with household chemicals. Certain gemstones must not be exposed to hot solutions, abrasive cleaners or ultrasonic cleaners. Most gemstones may be cleaned with a non-abrasive jewelry cleaner. Do not let these gemstones come into contact with creams, ammoniated liquid, or chlorinated water. Pearls, on the other hand, require special care.
