Jewellery care

Maintain the beauty of your treasured Diamond and Dragonflies jewellery by following these practical tips:

  • We include a jewellery cloth with your purchase.
  • Keep your jewellery away from chemicals and apply your hand cream careful. Jewellery do not like cream.
  • Store your jewellery away from direct sunlight, moisture, extreme heat, cold or dust.
  • Store your jewellery separately, to avoid scratches and tangles- we recommend keeping each beautiful piece in your Diamond and Dragonflies pouch.
  • Take your jewellery off at bedtime.
  • Clean your jewellery gently with warm water, using a soft toothbrush and sunlight liquid.
  • Always be careful when cleaning not to loose a piece down the drain! It happens.
  • Although the rings are delicate, but still strong, it is best to wear it on your non-dominant hand. We tend to be more careful with this hand.
  • When in doubt abut how to look after your jewellery, seek a professional’s help.
