Over time, jewelry is exposed to dust, pollution and daily wear which can cloud the brilliance of gemstones and dull the surface and polish of gold. Certain basic precautions should be taken with all of your jewelry. However, some gemstones, as outlined in this section, require special care. Timeworn prongs and clasps can result in the loss of a stone or an entire piece of jewelry. Professional cleanings are recommended as often as once a year.

At Home Care

Between professional servicing, most gold jewelry can be maintained with a non-abrasive cleaner. Examine your jewelry regularly to make sure settings are snug and clasps and joinings are secure.
Avoid exposing gold jewelry to household bleach and similar de tergents, which will quickly cause gold to discolor and possibly disintegrate.
Jewelry storage is important as well. At the time of purchase, all Tesoro 1949 jewelry is wrapped in a protective box, case or tarnish-resistant pouch. Between wearings, we recommend that you place it back in its original case or another suitably lined box or pouch.
Take care to protect your jewelry from impact against hard surfaces and avoid contact with abrasive surfaces. Even a diamond can chip if hit with enough force or at just the right angle. Many stones such as amethyst, emerald, kunzite, opal, pearl, peridot, tanzanite and tourmaline are very delicate and easily fractured. Enamel can also chip or scratch when struck. Gemstones can scratch other gemstones and wear away at precious metals. Therefore, avoid stacking rings and bracelets that would be vulnerable to such abrasion. Extreme temperatures, perfumes, cosmetics, ultrasonic cleaning and household chemicals can also damage jewelry.
To clean diamonds, use a mild solution of six parts water to one part ammonia and apply with a soft bristle brush.
