Caring For Your Tailor-Made Jewellery
Years of experience combined with expert craftsmanship combine to create our tailor-made jewellery.
Jewellery is designed to be worn and enjoyed and each bespoke Christopher Stoner piece is no different. Great care and attention has gone into ensuring your jewellery is fit for purpose.
However, accidents happen and jewellery and gemstones can be damaged. Being aware of situations where jewellery is at risk can help to avoid damage occurring in the first place.
Store your jewellery with care
Protect your jewellery from scratching, denting, chemicals, direct sunlight and excessive heat/cold by storing it carefully when not being worn.
Jewellery can become scratched when it comes into contact with other hard objects. 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 jewellery dry with low humidity. Damp, hot conditions may tarnish metals and damage certain gemstones over 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. Gym equipment is a frequent culprit in the damage of rings.
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. If cared for correctly it will last for generations.
