The beauty of gemstones is that they're unique. No two gemstones are the same. But with over a hundred to choose from, it pays to know how to store and clean them.
Storing your gemstones
To maintain their natural beauty, store our gemstone jewellery in the provided By Fairfax & Roberts pouch. Keep in a cool, dry place.
Caring for your gemstones
Most gems will respond well to warm water, mild detergent and a soft brush. Alternatively, gently rinse your gemstone jewellery in a bowl of warm water with a little dishwashing detergent and dry flat on a towel. For the chains or fittings, simply use a soft damp cloth to wipe off dust or marks.
However, because there are so many types of gems, we strongly recommend consulting our gemstone care guide, which outlines thorough cleaning techniques, before proceeding.
Things to avoid
- To keep your gemstones bright, you must avoid spraying them with perfume or makeup. This can dull the look of the gemstone with a build-up of compounds.
- The chemicals used in swimming pools and spas can permanently damage the finish of the gold plating, resulting in a worn look.
- Never wear earrings or chains while sleeping as they may wear the links or become twisted or tangled resulting in broken links.
