CARING FOR GOLD JEWELRY

It’s always best to remove your rings and bracelets before washing your hands. This will keep abrasive chemicals and perfumes away from your jewelry. The same is true for hand lotions. Exercise is as essential as accessorizing — just don’t do them at the same time! A vigorous workout might not only damage your jewelry but soil your pieces with sweat. Whether you swim for fitness or prefer to relax in a Jacuzzi, it’s important to remove your jewelry first. This may seem obvious, but chlorine can cause severe damage to gold. Ditto for chlorine-based cleaning products. Always store your gold pieces neatly, and separately from other jewelry. Tangled chains are the worst! Be sure to close any clasps before putting your pieces away.

CARING FOR GEMSTONE JEWELRY

Take care to protect your jewelry from impact against hard surfaces and avoid contact with abrasive surfaces. Even a diamond can chip if hit with enough force or at just the right angle. Extreme temperatures, perfumes, cosmetics, ultrasonic cleaning and household chemicals can also damage jewelry. To clean diamonds, use a mild solution of six parts water to one part ammonia and apply with a soft bristle brush.

TRUE GOLD CHARACTER

Understanding what makes 22 and 24 karat gold special, will also help you care for your Auvere pieces. Beyond the basics, it’s important to recognize that high karat gold jewelry is exceptional. Auvere jewelry is designed to maximize the beauty, essence, and character of 22 and 24 karat gold. One of the traits of 22 and 24 karat gold is its inherent softness. This distinguishing characteristic is one of the reasons why we love it. It’s gentle malleability, and soft, sensuous feel makes it a dream to wear.
