Over time jewellery becomes a treasured family heirloom if its cared for properly. Dust, pollution and daily wear all conspire to cloud the brilliance of gemstones and dull the lustre of silver jewellery. Time worn prongs and clasps can result in the loss of a stone or an entire piece of jewellery.
Sterling Silver Jewellery
Aiyaana only uses sterling silver in all its products, one of the most beautiful and lustrous of all metals. With proper care, your silver will retain its beauty and character for many generations to come.
Certain basic precautions should be taken with your entire jewellery. However, some gemstones, as outlined in this section, require special care.
Take care to protect your jewellery from impact against hard surfaces and avoid contact with abrasive surfaces. Many stones such as Amethysts, Opals, Pearls and Peridots are very delicate and easily abraded. Gemstones can scratch other gemstones and wear away at precious metals.
Therefore, avoid stacking your rings and earrings into one common pouch.
Extreme temperatures, perfumes, cosmetics, ultrasonic cleaning and household chemicals can also damage jewellery.
