Care and Cleaning of Your Jewellery
Fine jewellery is a precious possession that is designed and crafted to last a lifetime. The proper care will assure the lasting qualities of your jewellery.
Gerry & Co are pleased to offer the following simple guidelines and tips for the care of your fine jewellery.
Tips for general care –
Even though you may wear your diamond engagement ring 24 hours a day, you should still give a thought to its care.
Even though a diamond is durable, it can be chipped by a hard blow.
Don’t let your diamond come into contact with chlorine bleach when you’re doing household chores. It can pit and discolour the mounting.
Do call in to see us at least once a year and have us check your rings and other precious pieces for loose claws and wear of mountings. We can also give them a professional clean and polish too for a small fee.

CLEANING YOUR DIAMONDS
With everyday wear, diamonds get soiled and dusty. Creams, powders, soaps and even natural skin oils put a film on diamonds and cut down their brilliance. Chemicals in the air can discolour the mounting of precious jewellery.
Clean diamonds sparkle because the maximum amount of light can then enter and return to the surface with a fiery brilliance. It takes just a little care to keep them that way. Here are four ways to clean diamonds. One of them is pretty sure to fit the time, place and the job.
