HOW TO TAKE CARE OF YOUR KAIRA JEWELS

 

Cleaning

Most colored gems can be cleaned with warm water, mild dish soap (no detergents) and a soft brush. A pulsed-water dental cleaning appliance and a soft, lint-free cloth can also be used. Be sure to rinse your jewelry in a glass of water to remove cleaning solutions.

On the other hand, soft gems, such as pearls, can easily scratch. Use a clean makeup brush and warm, soapy water to softly clean them. Lay a strand of pearls on a towel to dry. The wet silk thread can attract dirt so don’t touch your strand until it is completely dry. Pearls worn often should be restrung once a year.*

 

Storage

Proper jewelry storage is often overlooked. Jewelry should never be tossed into a drawer or on top of a dresser, this will cause scratches and damages to your gems. Use the pouch or box you received with your piece for safe storage. When traveling, protect your jewelry pieces from scratches or other impact damage by padding it in a separate box or case.
