From the hustle and bustle of the holiday season to the wind down in the New Year be sure to have the right jewellery for every occasion.
Classic diamond studs are a wardrobe must have and a simple pair of pearl studs will take you from skating to a romantic dinner.
Layering for the changing climate is not only for clothing – your jewellery can use an additional layer as well. Start with your ear lobes and add a larger more impressive earring. Moving to your neck, try accenting a bar pendant with a longer necklace to go below it. Now it’s time for your wrist. Find one special statement piece, many an oversize Muskoka Watch, and top it off with a couple of slim bangles or bracelets. Finally moving down to your fingers, you can’t go wrong with one big, bold ring or several stackable rings to round out your wardrobe. And don’t forget if you are travelling this winter you can always add in some silver jewellery so you don’t have to take your more valuable jewellery with you.
Storing your Jewellery
Make sure when you are ready to store your silver jewellery. Store it in a cool, dry place, preferably in a soft piece of felt or cloth. You can also add an anti-tarnish strip for your silver jewellery. Ask one of our sales representatives for more details.
Because of the high value and rarity of certain jewellery, some people like to store their jewelry in a safe when not in use. If you have individual gemstones, a soft pouch is good for keeping them from coming in contact with other hard surfaces. If you would like to have your jewellery professionally cleaned, bring it and we will have your jewellery looking shiny and new!
Cleaning Your Jewellery
Be careful using ultrasonic cleaners, as only certain gemstones can handle the ultrasonic vibrations. Diamond cleaners usually contain ammonia and water. Using a soft brush you can remove dust or dirt from under the setting. Silver jewellery can be cleaned with a silver polishing cloth, with or without special silver cleaning solution. Never wear your silver jewellery in a hot tub or chlorinated pool. The chemicals will pit your silver and they cannot be repaired.
Diamonds are forever, as long as you take good care of them! Bridal jewellery, such as engagement rings and wedding bands are typically worn daily, and can appear like they’ve lost their sparkle if not cleaned on a regular basis. Lotions put film on diamonds and reduce their shininess. Don’t wear diamond jewellery while doing rough work. Avoid chlorinated pools and hot tubs. Avoid touching diamonds with your fingers, as smudges can affect a diamond’s luster and fire.
