DRAJÉE London jewellery is created using the finest materials and designed to last forever. But, to ensure it stays looking as bright and beautiful as the day you bought it, follow this simple jewellery care advice.
Gold has no oxides meaning it won’t tarnish. But, it is a relatively soft metal, so you should take care to store it so that it doesn’t tangle, rub, or scratch against other jewellery pieces. Always take off your gold jewellery when applying perfumes or lotions to avoid a build-up of chemical residue on the metal. Clean it regularly using mild soapy water and a soft, lint-free cloth. Tougher dirt build-ups or stains can be removed using a soft-bristled toothbrush and pieces should always be dried thoroughly – again using a soft, clean, lint-free cloth or specialist jewellery cloth.
Pearls are organic and composed of a relatively soft material that is more prone to damage than harder gemstones. Make sure not to store them with other jewellery which can lead to scratches or damage. Ideally, store them in a silk box or pouch. Pearls don’t need to be cleaned with any type of detergent, as even the mildest of soaps may damage their delicate natural coating. Instead, wear them regularly. The natural oils from your skin will help to protect and maintain them. If your pearls do get dirty, you can use a soft damp cloth to gently wipe them. Allowing them to dry fully before storing.
Diamonds may be the hardest material known to man, but they can still suffer from scratches and knocks, particularly from other diamonds. So, take special care when wearing diamonds with other stones and when storing diamond jewellery. They should be cleaned regularly to maintain their sparkle using a mild solution of soap and water along with a soft cloth or soft-bristled toothbrush. Take care to concentrate on the area around the diamond setting where dust and grime can build up most easily. Always rinse diamonds thoroughly after cleaning and dry gently with a soft, clean, lint-free cloth.
