JEWELLERY CARE TIPS 

F Saadallah  jewellery is created using 18ct & 21ct gold with pearls, 925 ct silver, semi precious and precious stones.

When dressing, jewellery should always be put on last as make-up, cosmetics and perfumes can cause damage to delicate items.

In order to preserve your jewellery, clean it with an polishing cloth or mild soapy water whenever needed.

Keep all jewellery in its own box or pouch to prevent it from becoming scratched or dented.

Tips

Gold jewellery should be cleaned regularly to maintain its beauty and shine. A soft, lint free cloth is an effective way to keep your gold pieces looking lustrous. Gold is a relatively delicate metal, and is susceptible to damage from chlorine. Chlorine, especially at high temperatures, can permanently damage or discolour your gold jewellery. Therefore, avoid wearing gold jewellery when using chlorine or bleach, or while in a pool or hot tub. White gold is plated with a metal called rhodium, which gives it a bright white finish. Rhodium plating may wear away if the item is worn regularly and is in regular contact with other surfaces. Consequently rings and bracelets will occasionally require re-plating; earrings and necklaces will rarely need re-plating.

To maintain the natural colour and shine of silver, and to avoid oxidation or tarnishing, gently clean your silver jewellery regularly with an polishing cloth. After time, your jewellery may require ultrasonic cleaning. This is a process whereby the item is placed in a pool of vibrating warm water and the ripples extract any hidden dirt within the setting, which can also cause a dull appearance. Silver is a relatively delicate metal, and is susceptible to damage from chlorine. Chlorine, especially at high temperatures, can permanently damage or discolour your silver jewellery. Therefore, avoid wearing silver jewellery when using chlorine or bleach, or while in a pool or hot tub.

Diamonds should be kept separately from other jewellery (including other diamonds), preferably in their own pouches, padded compartments or boxes to prevent scratching. To maintain their natural sparkle, clean your diamonds using warm water, mild detergent and a soft toothbrush. Gently brush the setting and stone and then rinse thoroughly. Dry and polish using a lint-free cloth, or an polishing cloth.

Although gemstones are some of the most durable of the world’s natural materials, they still need some care to maintain their natural beauty, and colour and shape. Store fine jewellery and gems in separate pouches, padded compartments or wrapped in a soft lint free cloth to prevent scratching, chipping and entanglement. Porous gems including turquoise, amber, opal and pearls may absorb liquid substances, in the same way that other, non-gemstones absorb liquid. Porous gems are usually those which are not made from a single crystal, and are therefore opaque. Liquids and oils can seep into the gems through the tiny cracks between the crystals, causing permanent discolouration and damage. Therefore all porous gemstones should be kept away from dirty water, oils, chemicals, cosmetics and cleaning agents. Particular substances to protect your gems from include household chemicals – even those as mild as washing up liquid – cosmetic products such as sunscreen and hairspray, as well as hand lotions and face creams. In addition, porous gems should not be worn to a beach, or other hot, extreme environments. To clean, wipe these gems gently with a soft, damp cloth or sponge, and dry using a lint-free cloth. When cleaning non-porous gemstones, wash them very gently with a weak solution of mild detergent, rinse with clean lukewarm water, and dry them with a soft, lint-free cloth. On harder stones, it is safe to do a little very gentle scrubbing with a soft toothbrush. If you are cleaning jewellery, however, be careful not to scrub highly polished metal surfaces, as the slight abrasive action of the brush can wear away the plating or polish of the metal. A little soaking might be necessary to remove heavier deposits

Pearls are very delicate and will be permanently damaged by cosmetics containing alcohol or acids. Apply perfume and make-up before putting on your pearls and let it dry first. Do not use jewellery solutions to clean pearls, and keep them stored in a separate pouch or box to avoid scratching, helping them to maintain their lustre. Pearls are usually strung on knotted thread, which although highly durable is susceptible to stretching and wear. Therefore, over time, you will need to have your pearls restrung. As a guideline, if you wear your pearls weekly or more often, you are probably going to need to re-string once every couple of years. If you are wearing your pearls once a month or less, then re-stringing every three or four years will usually suffice. If restringing is delayed, the process can become more difficult as the thread can deteriorate, dirt accumulates, and then both can become stuck in the drill holes of the pearls. To assess whether your pearls need to be restrung, look carefully at the thread. If it is bright white, they probably do not need re-stringing. If the thread is greasy, turning grey or you can see an accumulation of dirt, especially near the drill hole of the pearl, it is probably time to have them re-strung. To arrange to have your pearls restrung, either contact our customer services team, or bring your pearls into one of our boutiques and our expert staff will be happy to assist you.
