When seasons change, your wardrobe will also. Don’t forget, when transitioning from sandals to boots, you should update your jewellery as well.
As the warmth of the season regresses from high heat to cool breezes, try mingling summer silvers with warm yellow or rose gold to add warmth akin to the suns. Pair these with warm colored gemstones, reminiscent of radiant sunsets, to add luminosity to your outfits.
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, maybe an oversized 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. Easing out of your summer jewellery is enjoyable as you look forward to the autumn and winter season ahead.
While our jewellery was created to last a lifetime, there are some factors that can contribute to the everyday wear and tear of your fine jewelry.
Storing your Jewellery
Make sure when you are ready to put away your silver jewellery, store it in a cool, dry place, preferably in a soft piece of felt or cloth. Ask one of our sales representatives about getting a jewellery box for all your valued treasures.
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.
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.
