How to Care for Your Jewelry

Ferko’s Fine Jewelry pieces are designed to transcend the years. So we’ve put together a complete guide on how to care for your jewelry so that it shines forever.

Beautiful jewelry deserves to last a lifetime. Simple, classic and elegant, your Ferko’s pieces are meant to be timeless—not only in style but also in longevity.

Timeless appeal doesn’t mean much without the durability to back it up. We pride ourselves on every little detail when it comes to crafting quality jewelry. That’s why we’ve put a lot of thought into the materials we use and the creation process behind every made-to-order piece.

However, special care and attention are also essential in keeping your Ferko’s pieces in top shape. So we’ve put together a complete guide on how to care for your jewelry so that they continue to shine for years to come.

How to Clean Your Jewelry

If you wear your jewelry often, we recommend that you give it the occasional cleaning. The dust, pollution and dirt that comes with everyday wear can impact the sparkle of your pieces. A little TLC every now and then does wonders in preserving the health and brilliance of your favorite necklaces, earrings, bracelets and rings.

Light Wash:

  1. Mix mild dish detergent with warm water in a shallow dish until it’s fully dissolved.
  2. Soak your jewelry piece in the solution for 5 to 10 minutes.
  3. Use a soft cloth or soft-bristle toothbrush to gently scrub clean. Rinse with clean water to remove any soap residue.
  4. Let it dry on a clean, soft cloth.

Protecting Your Jewelry

It’s also important to avoid exposing your jewelry to any harsh chemicals and abrasives that you may encounter on a regular basis. This includes chlorine, bleach, hairspray, soaps, perfumes, toothpaste and more. Buildup and exposure can dull the shine of gold and diamond over time.

We also recommend removing your jewelry pieces before certain activities, such as exercising, swimming, showering, sleeping, gardening and washing your hands. It’s also a good idea to apply any creams, perfumes and hair products before you wear your jewelry. Any necklaces, earrings, bracelets or rings should be the last items you put on.

Another tip to remember is to avoid impact against hard surfaces. Our 14K Solid Gold jewelry provides a great balance between strength, value and purity—but you still want to minimize any collision. Even diamonds, which are one of the hardest natural substances on earth, should be handled with care. Although uncommon, diamonds can chip if hit with enough force at just the right angle.

How to Store Your Jewelry

Between wearings, we recommend that you place your jewelry in proper storage. Store your favorite pieces in a safe, memorable and dry place when not worn to protect them from the elements of daily exposure. The pouch and jewelry box provided with your purchase are a great place to shelter your pieces when you’re not using them.

It’s best to store your jewelry separately to keep them from scratching or tangling. Try to keep your pieces at room temperature and away from intense heat.

Regularly Examine Your Jewelry

It pays to occasionally check your jewelry for any loose prongs or stones, both big and small. If you feel a stone might be loose, contact a member of our customer care team and send it to us for a professional examination and repairs. We offer a free stone replacement within 6 months of purchase if there’s no damage done to the jewelry piece itself.

In addition to making sure everything is safe and secure, you can also look into repolishing and replating every few years. Be sure to have all prongs checked and stones tightened after each polishing.

Jewelry to Last a Lifetime

Simple, classic and elegant jewelry can be worn for decades for their timeless appeal. Your Ferko’s pieces will be with you through thick and thin—each holding a lifetime’s worth of love, dreams, possibility and memories. This all begins with special care and attention, so your favorite pieces can continue to shine for years to come.
