The best ways to keep "The birds in the meadow" jewellery in good condition
All jewellery is carefully handmade and finished and can be expected to last. However there are many things that you can do to ensure your jewellery stands the test of time.
Cosmetics In time all jewellery especially vintage pieces can be degraded by exposure to hairspray, lotions, hair products, sun tan creams, perfume and perspiration. To minimise this damage, don't put on your jewellery until you have finished applying all cosmetics and toiletries.
Water Immersion in water, especially salty or chlorinated water will result in serious damage to some pieces and should be avoided.
To clean your jewellery take a lint free soft cloth and moisten slightly with tepid water. Use it to gently clean your jewellery; do not scrub or use harsh cleaning fluids. Pat dry with a dry lint free cloth.
Storage Ideally you should keep your jewellery wrapped in a clean soft cloth. This will protect it from scratches and tangles. Keeping your jewellery on a jewellery stand away from direct heat is a good alternative.
