Be sure to handle your jewellery with care. Remove your jewellery when washing your hands or using corrosive products that could permanently damage precious metal, stones or pearls.
Take your sports activities into consideration when wearing your jewellery, including potential for impact or those involving movement. Keep your jewellery away from intense sources of heat, extreme temperature changes or long periods of direct sunlight.
Cleaning and Storing
Your jewellery should be cleaned regularly. you may carry out the cleaning yourself by brushing the jewellery delicately with a very soft small brush in lukewarm soapy water, carefully rinsing it in lukewarm water and then wiping it with a soft cloth to dry it.
Pieces of jewellery can become scratched when they come into contact with one another. we recommend you to store them individually in their Ilaria Icardi case or dust bag.
Chains should be closed and laid flat so as to avoid the formation of knots. You are strongly advised not to place several pieces of jewellery in the same case or dust bag together without protection.
Before putting on your piece of jewellery, make sure to check that the clasp and its safety catch, if it has one, is not loose.
Check that the settings of the stones have not moved. You can do this by either shaking the piece of jewellery close to your ear: if you hear a slight noise, this means that the stones are no longer perfectly secured.
Or rub the piece of jewellery against a thin cloth: if the cloth catches, this means that the prongs have moved. In this case it is advisable not to wear your piece of jewellery and to get it checked or contact us.
Shocks or Hits
If your jewellery suffers a shock or hit, the stone setting may need to be checked. Avoid forcing clasps, joints and metal frames and be sure to check that the clasp and safety latch close properly. If you have any concerns, do not wear the piece of jewellery and get it checked or contact us.
