Jewellery Care Guide

18K White Gold Brooch with Citrine and Diamonds in Star Setting

We recommend that you keep your favourite jewellery pieces shining and wearable with a few simple tips. The following advice by TVRRINI is for suggestion only. 

Avoid cleaning pearls 

There is no need to clean pearls – the natural oils on your skin will help maintain their shine. Even very mild detergent may damage their delicate coating.


Some cleaning substances are too harsh on gemstones

Gold, pearls and other organic or porous gemstones should be protected from the alcohol or acids in make-up, perfume and hairspray. Always put your jewellery on last, after your perfume has dried.

Jewellery dips and sonic cleaners can damage pearls and gemstones. These liquids may wear down rhodium coatings. Generally, jewellery should be cleaned with nothing stronger than very mild soapy water and a soft toothbrush, while porous gemstones and pearls require only lukewarm water.


Protecting gold jewellery

Most of our gold jewellery is made with 18K gold. Due to the purity of the metal, it is quite soft, and therefore needs to be treated with care.

The setting and the stones can both be damaged by sharp impacts that can occur when working with your hands, doing exercise etc.

It is therefore best to wear your rings on your non-leading hand and remove them if you know you are about to embark on an activity that may expose them to risk. 


Have a suitable way to store jewellery 

Store your TVRRINI jewellery in its own pocket or pouch of a jewellery box or wallet to prevent it getting scratched. 

Some of our 18K gold jewellery is plated with rhodium, which can give it either a bright, polished white gold finish, or a black sleek appearance.

Although gemstones are some of the hardest natural materials in the world, the cut and setting can make them vulnerable. Larger stones in particular should be worn and stored with care.

Should your pieces start to look worn down, you may stay in touch with us for re-plating to restore their shine.


Protection against cosmetics and natural elements 

Porous gemstones, including amber, turquoise, opals and pearls may be stained by oils or liquids, so it’s particularly important to avoid contact with face creams, sun tan lotion and household chemicals.

Wash porous gemstones in lukewarm water and polish with a lint-free soft cloth.

Porous gemstones are more susceptible to damage when hot, so avoid wearing jewellery to the beach, where the sea salt, sun and sand could easily mar the appearance of your gems.
