Caring For Your Opal Jewellery:
Opals are Very Much Like Pearls So Please Apply Any Perfume Before Wearing Your Jewellery.
Please Avoid Rapid Changes in Temperature i.e. Showering or Washing Your Hands in Hot Water, Fairy Liquid Over Time Can Be Abrasive Over Time Making Your Opal Dull - We Specialise in Re-Polishing Opals Especially Antique Opal.
Gardening in Any Jewellery Should Be a No No, Dirt is Abrasive and Will Scratch Your Gem Set and Gold/Silver Jewellery.
When Placing Your Jewellery in a Box Please Gently Pop Them Down, Try To Keep All Gemstones Separate
No Gemstone is Indestructible - Even Two Diamonds That Knock Together Can Chip Each Other.
