Quick Tip on Cleaning your Jewellery.
So you have just purchased a piece of jewellery that has the potential of becoming a family heirloom and you have brought it home with pride. It sits in a velvet box in a special place and is worn on special occasions. Unfortunately time will eventually take its toll and soon enough the piece will start showing small signs of dirt, which detracts from its sparkle and beauty.
The best option for cleaning your jewellery would be to take it back to Mac, but that isn’t always possible due to time and distance. So, if you decide to clean it yourself, err on the side of caution. Avoid harsh cleaners at all costs, especially if your piece contains the subtle and soft Queensland ironstone opal. Warm, soapy water and a Q-tip will get into those hard to reach places, and a soft, dry cloth for the polish.
A simple gold or sterling silver piece is the easiest of all as there are a choice of cleaners on the market and all readily available. It goes without saying that jewellery should never be left to soak as too much moisture can be damaging.
