Caring for your jewellery

How to care for your jewellery and Liri’s repair policy

We love our jewellery but we don’t always know what’s best for it to keep it looking its best. Each Liri jewellery order comes with a jewellery care card so you know how to look after your lovely Liri pieces. Follow these easy tips to ensure your treasures continue to sparkle.

Wearing your jewellery

Take care with lotions and perfume

When putting on your jewellery, make sure you have already applied any lotions and perfumes to your skin before putting on your necklaces, bracelets or rings. Lotions and perfumes will clog and dull your jewellery so it’s best both have them completely dried on your skin before putting on your jewellery.

Keep away from the pool and sea

Although it can look glamorous, please don’t wear your jewellery in the pool, at the beach or in the sea. Salt and chlorine are abrasive and will damage precious metals and gems. Sun cream and sand also clog and scratch. You should avoid getting any jewellery made with any threads wet as this will dull and weaken the cords.

Remove jewellery before bedtime to avoid tangling

Remove jewellery before doing any physical work or exercise 

Do not wear your jewellery in the bath or shower as soap clogs the pieces

Do not wear your jewellery to a spa or in a jacuzzi or hot tub as it can react with the  chemicals used and turn black 

Most jewellery is not designed for everyday wear, so try not to wear the same piece each day, to reduce wear and tear

Storing your jewellery

Please don’t store your jewellery on hooks in the open air. Although beautiful to look at, such storage increases tarnishing. Dust will also clog and dull the metals and gems, and prolonged exposure to sunlight will cause some gems to fade.

Treat yourself to a lovely jewellery box

Please store all jewellery in a jewellery box you can close. You can either store necklaces on hooks or in a sellable bag, which will reduce the rate of tarnishing. Keep the clasp end of the necklace hanging out of the bag to prevent tangling.

Cleaning your jewellery

All you need is soap and water

Silver and gemstone jewellery are quick and easy to clean. Simply immerse in warm soapy water and gently scrub with a soft toothbrush. Be careful around prongs or any delicate fittings. Pat dry and leave to dry in an area away from draughts, returning to your jewellery box once completely dry. For tarnishing, simply use a tarnish cloth, available from all good quality jewellers. Run gently across the silver and your jewellery will look as good as new.

Look after your jewellery and it will always make sure you shine.

Please note: Liri Jewellery Ltd. accepts no responsibility for damage to jewellery caused by any of the above.
