Jewellery Care Tips

Welcome to ZaniL Design Jewellery Care Tips
Here you will find a few jewellery care tips that will make your jewellery last longer and look as good as when you first bought it.
  • Pearl Jewellery should be keep separate from other jewellery to avoid scratching the pearls.

  • Pearls should be restrung every 12 -24 months depending on how often they are worn.

  • Keep chemicals ( perfumes, hair spray, hand cream etc) away from jewellery in general, but especially so with pearls ( pearls will absorb chemicals as they are a natural gem) and beaded jewellery.

  • Pearls should be the last item to be put on (after applying perfume and makeup) and the first thing to remove.

  • Clean Pearls and beaded jewellery by wiping down gently with a damp cloth.

  • Beaded jewellery strung on tiger tail should not be bent to avoid getting kinks in the wire as it will retain the kink shape.

  • Do not immerse jewellery in water, sea water, chlorinate pools.

  • Pearls should not be exposed to direct sun light as they will discolour over time.

Why are pearls and beads knotted??

  • Pearls and some beads are knotted between each bead so that if the strand of beads break, you will not loose all or some of the beads.
  • Pearls are also usually knotted to keep the beads seperate so the individual pearl beads do not touch each other to avoid scratching and wearing against the pearls.
  • Beads are knotted for the particular look. Each bead stands out on its own.
