A little bit of maintenance goes a long way in keeping your precious pieces looking like new.
Whatever the occasion, a beautiful new piece of jewellery can be a great gift for your partner. Before investing your hard-earned money in a special keepsake, it’s worth knowing how to keep the piece looking brand new.
Cameron Marks, director of the Jewellers Association of Australia, says we really need to think about our jewels like we would a prized car. “You change your tyres and you get your car serviced every year—the same should apply to jewellery,” he says.
That’s why Costco jewellery and watches buyer, Katrina Ngo, recommends having your pieces inspected and cleaned by a jeweller every six months. “This will keep the piece looking like new and assist with ensuring the integrity of the setting,” she explains. In the meantime, there’s a lot you can do at home to protect your most sparkly assets.
