Some rules for Japanese gemstones
- Do not throw your jewels on a heap. Keep them separated and respect their composition to avoid scratches. Be careful with diamonds, they scratch other gems easily, like pearls. Have a special box with labels or wrap them in cotton and store individually.
- A day jewel and a night jewel need different care. Day jewels need water and light to keep brilliance. Aerate them at least once a year. Rinse with water and a soft towel. Expose them to gentle light. Surprising no? But… some gemstones are meant to shine at night. Keep those away from sunlight… so know your gem and when to wear it.
- Never use cleaning chemicals or scrubbing brushes. They will damage your gems. Never use pressure on them.
- Remove your jewels when working in the garden, swimming or cleaning. Also when washing your hands. Especially when using chemicals. They will harm sensitive jewelries.
- When dressing up, put on your jewels last.
- Stretch beaded gemstones.
- Store your jewels after use in a safe place.
And remember chemicals are to be banned at all costs!
