As with all fine jewellery care should be taken to preserve the lustre of the silver and colour of the stone. Turquoise is a gem stone and as with many gems can collect chemicals and oily products within its pores. This can cause the turquoise to discolour. To minimise damage remove rings and bracelets before using detergents, chemical products and hand / body lotions.
To polish your turquoise or other gem stone jewellery we recommend a silver polishing cloth and not a jewellery dip. If you need any advice we will be pleased to help.
