Jewellery care

Take good care of your Carré jewellery and they will keep beautiful for longer! Your Carré jewellery is produced with most care. It is made from precious metals and is handmade. An essential element of your Carré jewellery is delicate settings and wires, which add a light and dainty appearance to the pieces. With proper care, your jewellery will stay gorgeous for many years to come.
The settings and shapes of your jewellery should be checked regularly. When your jewellery is worn, it is exposed to common wear and impacts, which can cause your jewellery to be bent out of shape or the gemstones to become loose. You can always contact our stores, where we will help you with your best options for maintenance and reparations.

General advices

Your jewellery wears and ages, just like everything else. Here is a couple of tips to delay the process as much as possible:
Take off your jewellery before going to sleep, when you shower and when you do sports. By doing this, you will avoid your jewellery to be exposed to a lot of wear, moisture, sweat and impacts.
*
Make sure your jewellery is not in contact with cremes, fragrances, hair products and cleaning products. Especially gemstones can be sensitive to the oils and chemicals, that these products contain.
*
Gemstones should be handled with caution – they can be damaged if they fall on to a hard floor or are exposed to hard bumps.
*
Ring shanks can take shape from your finger when worn – the more delicate the ring shank is, the easier it can change its shape. We can very likely help you with straightening your ring back in shape. Contact one of our stores to get an assessment of your ring.
