Care Instructions

Basic Jewellery care
SENSA recommends that you have your jewellery cleaned professionally once a year to preserve and protect your heirloom for years to come.

Claw / Prong settings
We recommend that you examine your prongs regularly by running your fingers over the gems to ensure that they are flat on top of the stone. Please note that loosening of the prongs can happen if jewellery is hit against a hard surface or snagged continually on clothing.

Avoid exposing gold jewellery to household chemicals, which will quickly cause the gold to discolour and possibly disintegrate.

White Gold
Usually white gold is rhodium plated to give it a pure white colour so it`s best not to use a gold polishing cloth to clean it as this will polish it away. If you notice over time that the metal is looking a little yellow then we recommend that you have it re-rhodium plated.

Sterling silver tarnishes fairly easily if not rhodium plated. To clean this we recommend using a non-abrasive silver polish.

Diamonds and non-porus semi precious gems, use a mild soap, water and a very soft brush.

Porus Gemstones

Pearls, opal, emerald, turquoise, amber, coral and onyx are porus gemstones and should be cleaned with a soft non-abrasive polishing cloth.
We advise against ultrasonic baths as they are not safe for many gemstones.

Pearls should be the last thing to put on when getting dressed and the first thing to come off when undressing.

Generally there is no need to clean the pearl - their natural oils will help maintain its lustre. However if they are in contact with perspiration, or make up use a damp cloth to wipe them clean.

Avoid contact with perfume, hairspray, cosmetics and household cleaning agents as they contain alcohol, acids and harsh chemicals that are harmful to the pearls lustre and surface.

Note: Pearl strands will need to be restrung when you start to see more of the silk string in-between.

Keep separately from other jewellery to avoid surface scratching from other gemstones.
