For fine jewellery to bring you joy for a lifetime, it will require regular maintenance. We strongly recommend that you visit a Gerard McCabe boutique annually to have your jewellery cleaned and inspected for wear and tear.
We always recommend you store your jewellery items individually, in a softly lined jewellery box or pouch when you are not wearing them. It is best to remove your jewellery when undertaking any manual activities such as dishwashing or gardening. Apply creams and perfumes before you put on your jewellery.
You can clean and care for your jewellery at home between boutique visits following the instructions below. Please be aware that some gemstones have very specific cleaning instructions so as not to damage them. If in doubt, leave it to a professional and pop in to see our experts in our Adelaide jewellery stores.
Emeralds and Tanzanite are fragile gemstones that can be easily damaged by heat and ultrasonic cleaners. These gemstones are best left to professionals to clean.
Part of the allure of antique jewellery is the history and patina that accompanies its great age. Vigorous cleaning methods can damage these pieces, thus we recommend bringing your piece in regularly for a professional clean. In between store cleans, store the pieces separately in a lined jewellery box, only wear your Antique jewellery as a dress piece and remove your jewellery when undertaking any manual tasks. Wipe over with a soft cloth after each wear.
