Care for Antique Gemstones
Gemstones are a valuable part of any piece of antique jewellery. Common sense is the best preventative measure when caring for any antique gemstone. Although the metal components of ornaments often receive the most attention, gemstone care is equally as important.
Hairdryers should never be used to dry freshly-cleaned gemstones, and no pieces should ever come in contact with chlorine. It is crucial to protect antique jewellery as a whole, in order to maintain as much value as possible over time.
