FINE JEWELRY CARE

Gold: 

While gold is tarnish resistant, it can get dirty or smudged. To care for your LeRocs fine jewelry, we recommend cleaning it with a mild detergent or ammonia solution. You can use a soft brush but avoid using an abrasive as it can scratch the gold. Be sure to rinse and wipe clean.

Pearls: 

If you have a fine jewelry piece that contains a pearl, extra care should be taken. Cultured pearls are precious jewels and should be treated accordingly. Cosmetics, hair sprays and perfume should be applied before putting on pearl jewelry. Extra care can be taken by wiping the pearl carefully with a soft cloth to remove any traces of these substances when you take off the jewelry. You can also wash your pearl with mild soap and water. Do not clean cultured pearls with any chemicals, abrasives or solvents.


Charm Necklaces:

It is normal for charm necklaces to experience slight wear as the various charms come into contact with one another.  LeRocs Jewels is not responsible for the natural scratches that will form on your jewelry.  


General Care

To ensure the life of jewelry.  Please remove your jewelry while exercising, bathing, and swimming, and avoid contact with perfumes, lotions or hair products.  LeRocs Jewels recommends cleaning your plated jewelry using a damp, soft cloth. Make sure to fully dry the piece before wearing it. Do not use harsh chemicals, jewelry cleaners, or polishing cloths, as this will affect the finish. We suggest storing your jewelry in the box.   LeRocs Jewels is not responsible for the maintenance of your jewelry and does not polish purchased jewelry.

Gemstones Care

Crystalline gemstones, such as amethyst, blue topaz, citrine, or peridot attract oils and lotions causing them to appear dull. To clean, soak them in a bowl of water with a touch of gentle dish soap. A soft baby’s toothbrush may be used to scrub around and behind the stone. After cleaning, place your jewelry in a strainer and rinse before thoroughly drying with a lint-free cloth.

For diamonds, rubies, and sapphires set in gold or platinum, you can use a drop of ammonia in the rinse water. However, ammonia discolors organic gemstones and damages and dulls silver, so do not use it on these materials.
