When washing hands or using cleaning products
Swimming (fresh, chlorinated, or salt water)
Before physical daily activities such as exercise
Hitting any stone against a hard surface (this may loosen, chip, or break the stone–even diamonds!)
Exposing your pieces to high temperatures. Direct sunlight or temperature change over prolonged periods of time can ruin or damage certain types of stones
Layering other pieces on top of carved stone in a way that the other jewelry will hit/scrape gemstones
Household cleaners, perfumes, harsh chemicals, hairspray, and lotions as they can alter or ruin certain gemstones
We do not recommend using ultra sonic cleaners for our pieces
Check regularly for loose stones (if you feel or hear a tapping sound, your stone is loose in its setting)
Store your jewelry in separate pouches to avoid scratching metal and damaging stones during travel.
Always put on your jewelry over a soft surface in case you accidentally drop it
Wait until fragrances and cosmetics have dried completely before putting on jewelry
For Daily Cleaning
We recommend using a microfiber cloth to regularly wipe away dirt from your jewelry
For a Deeper Clean
Use a soft brush with a solution of mild dish soap and lukewarm water. Rinse well and dry with a soft, clean cloth.
In the case of emeralds, opals, and pearls, please contact the Brent Neale team to have your jewelry professionally cleaned.
