Sterling silver tarnishes naturally and requires occasional cleaning.
Storing your jewelry in plastic bags with an interlocking seal when not in use slows the tarnishing process.
Wash your jewellery in a very mild warm bath, rinse with warm water and dry with a clean soft cloth, an old nappy or flannelette cloth is perfect.
Polish your Sterling Silver and Gold Jewellery carefully with the Hagerty Silver and Jewel Cleaning Cloth.
Polish both metal and precious gems carefully with a Hagerty Polishing Cloth.

Your pearls are of organic origin with a soft and delicate porous surface. To maintain their beautiful luster, and to prevent damage, some simple care instructions should be followed.
• Store your pearls separately, away from other jewellery. A soft cloth bag is ideal.
• After wearing, wipe your pearls with a damp soft cloth to remove any perspiration, makeup or body oils.
• Ideally have your pearls rethreaded by a professional jeweller who offers a pearl re-threading service every 1-2 years. If you need to wash your pearls use warm very mild soapy water. Use a very mild pure soap and never use detergents. Rinse in clear water. Pat dry with a soft clean cloth. Lay out on a towel to dry. Do not use ultrasonic cleaners.
• Perfumes, skin preparations, hairspray and cosmetics all can be damaging to pearls. Complete your toiletry preparations prior to putting on your pearls.
• If you follow these simple steps your pearls could become an heirloom and be treasured for generations.
"The four C's" is a term commonly used when discussing diamonds, however few understand just how vital a piece of information this really is. The term is used to refer to the four most important attributes of a diamond - Carat-Weight, Color, Clarity and Cut - and it is these characteristics alone that determine a diamonds quality and value. If you are buying a loose stone, it is a good idea to ask your JAA Jeweller to arrange for a grading certificate from an independent diamond-grading laboratory, to determine the quality of the diamond by accurately assessing the different characteristics according to international standards.
