General Guidelines

  • Wipe your jewelry with a soft cloth after wearing.
  • Put on your jewelry last, after cosmetics, perfume, hairspray and other chemical substances that can be corrosive.
  • Store your jewelry pieces separately, in a jewelry box or pouches, to avoid scratching.
  • Be sure to observe the special cautions listed in this section.

Cleaning Notes

  • Most gold and silver jewelry can be cleaned with a liquid detergent solution.
  • For silver jewelry, it is best to use a mild cleaner without bleaching agents, abrasives, or ammonia.
  • Soak the items in a very warm solution of water and detergent, then rinse. (Important: do not use detergent on pearls.)
  • A gentle brushing with a soft toothbrush can loosen stubborn dirt.
  • Do not soak sterling silver very long, as it can change oxidized finishes.

Ribbon Care

  • Silk Ribbons can be hand washed with a gentle detergent such as Woolite. Air dry and then iron to flatten.
