Caring For Your Tailor-Made Jewellery
Years of experience have combined with expert craftsmanship to create your perfect piece of tailor-made jewellery.
Jewellery is designed to be worn and enjoyed and your bespoke Christopher Stoner piece is no different. Great care and attention has gone into ensuring your jewellery is fit for purpose.
However, accidents do happen and damage does occur. Being aware of the situations where items of jewellery are at the greatest risk can help to eliminate any damage occurring in the first place.
Store your jewellery with care
Protect your Christopher Stoner jewellery from scratching, denting, chemicals, direct sunlight and excessive heat/cold by storing it carefully and appropriately when not being worn.
Pieces of jewellery can become scratched when they come into contact with one another. Each piece should be stored individually, preventing tangles and reducing scratching and damage. The box you received your jewellery in is the perfect place to store your item.
Keep your jewellery somewhere dry, with low humidity. Damp, hot conditions may tarnish metals and damage certain gemstones over a period of time.
Respect Your Jewellery
Ideally, your jewellery should be the last thing you put on and the first thing you take off every day.
Harsh chemicals can cause damage, so avoid wearing your jewellery when swimming or cleaning.
Consider your daily activities and remove your jewellery when gardening, playing sport or when at the beach. Gyms and gym equipment are frequent culprits in the damage of rings in particular. So.....
Take care to protect your jewellery from impact against hard or abrasive surfaces. This can be the difference between a piece of jewellery lasting several lifetimes and one that has endless problems.
Even a diamond can chip if it is hit with enough force and at the right angle. Other precious gemstones such as emerald, ruby, opal, pearl, tanzanite and tourmaline are very delicate in comparison and are easily abraded.
Your piece of Christopher Stoner jewellery should last you a lifetime and if taken care of will last for generations to come.
