CARE OF JEWELLERY AND MEMORY BOXES

CARING FOR YOUR JEWELLERY

Cultured pearls, shell pearls, mother-of-pearl and some of the "softer" gemstones will mark or scratch if you are careless with your pieces when they are not being worn, so keep them safely in a dedicated jewellery box or a ziplock bag. I store my pearls wrapped in a soft cloth wrapped with a sheet of bubble wrap. Keep a piece of white chalk in with your jewellery and it will help prevent tarnishing (it soaks up moisture).

Obviously, don't swim or bathe or wash up wearing your pieces. Remove rings before washing your hands.

Plated wires, over time, will wear to reveal copper.

LOOKING AFTER YOUR MEMORY BOX

To keep your Memory Box looking beautiful, dust with a high quality feather duster using the lightest of touches. Do not use spray polish or cleaner - avoid moisture. Avoid placing it in direct sunlight or near direct heat. A Memory Box is not a toy and should not be given to children to play with as it is made up of, and contains, small parts.
